Nokia 8 has already been in news of being delayed for the software update, however it has been seen on Geekbench listing running Android 9. It’s worth noting here that HMD had promised to deliver Pie on Nokia 8 devices in November which is already now past.

According to source, Juho Sarvikas – the company’s CFO, who originally promised to deliver the update last month, actually had it ready in early November. However, he decided to withhold the update in hope of boosting the sales of new Nokia 8.1.
