Presently, a couple of manufacturers are rolling out the Android 9 Pie update to its flagship devices and users are still anticipating the user experience. In a tweet, Nokia’s CPO, Juho Sarvikas, revealed that the Android 9 Pie update for Nokia 8 will come with a couple of sleek features.
Hey let's not get carried away here 😀. We already issued a camera update and you will shortly get another one with Pie with new experiences. Also ARcore support is there, 8., Etc… Facial unlock we haven't rolled out yet to our products as we are still evaluating solutions.

He was responding to a user who complained that the company has abandoned Nokia 8 and has given more attention to Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 7 Plus. Mr. Sarvikas responded by saying that the “8” (obviously Nokia 8) already has a camera update and the Android 9 Pie is bringing more. As a teaser, he further stated that ARCore support comes with the Pie update. Apart from these features, face unlock is another update that is expected on this smartphone.
