HMD Global has been promising well timed Android updates not like its greater competitors and, to be fair, it has tried to do its quality given the circumstances. That said, even with its adjusted Android 10 roadmap due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was once nevertheless terribly late to rolling out those updates. But now that the last Nokia holdovers are ultimately getting their promised Android 10 updates, HMD Global may sooner or later be capable to focal point on Android 11, no longer to point out launch its already leaked roadmap.
HMD Global was proud to factor out remaining year that it used to be the quickest to go from N to O to P however that streak can also have been broken in Q, a.k.a. Android 10. It wasn’t definitely its fault, of course, and had to delay some of the updates due to the coronavirus. That said, it did promise that the ultimate batch of Nokia telephones will get the update in the second quarter of 2020, now not the last.
Better late than never, of course, and the Nokia 3.1 is finally getting Android 10. Company Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas additionally observed up that the Nokia 5.1 would be getting the same update in simply a while. These two are the closing telephones promised to get the Android 10 update, with the Nokia 1 curiously getting it back in July.
That optimistically means that the Android 11 upgrade cycle can now start. A briefly posted schedule of that update advised that the rollout will begin every now and then this quarter, starting with the Nokia 8.3 5G, Nokia 5.3, Nokia 2.2, and Nokia 8.1. That timetable would possibly be a bit positive thinking about Nokia Mobile shortly pulled out the tweet.
Given it took HMD Global pretty a while to certainly finish the rollout of final year’s Android 10, there’s possibly little assurances it will be in a position to do better this time around. The benefits of being a smaller and more agile agency as well as the use of notably plenty stock Android (or at least Android One), seems to be misplaced on Nokia telephones for some reason, which, in turn, also makes them simply like any other Android mid-range smartphone alternatively than a shining instance of how Android phones ought to be.
