You have heard it right! The rumor is true. Nokia’s first Android phones – Nokia 8 will be coming in to Singapore and you could get them through major electronics and Telco’s exclusive stores from 14 October onwards.
Ever since the announcement in Aug this year, the Nokia 8 has been receiving a lot of attentions from the market. Unlike other smartphone markers which try to differentiate themselves from others by putting a lot of proprietary bloat-wares in the Android OS, Nokia 8 will be powered by stock version Android OS. This means that Nokia 8 users will get updates soon after Google release it instead of waiting for the patching from the phone manufacturers.
