HMD Global reveals Android Pie update roadmap for Nokia devices

It has been over two years since HMD have been selling smartphones under the Nokia brand, providing a unique value proposition with their strong software game.

Having said that, Sarvikas also shared an infographic that explains the process of rolling out Android Pie updates for Nokia smartphones. Whereas, the Nokia 6, Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1 are tipped to receive Android Pie by the first quarter of 2019.

Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, announced the timeline on Twitter. The Android Pie, that is. HMD Global powered Nokia is committed to providing all major Android updates for a couple of years and three years of security updates to its devices. The Nokia 3.1 Plus is one of the company's newer devices and was released only a few months ago as a successor to the Nokia 3.1.

As mentioned earlier Nokia 5 and 3.1 Plus will get Android Pie this week. Once the stable version of Oreo is released, the company should be in a better position to know when to begin Pie preparations. The Nokia 2.1 is an Android Go smartphone, so it will receive Android 9 Pie (Go Edition) update with all the light applications from Google. The newly launched Nokia 8.1 came with Android 9 Pie out of the box, so it has a total of eight smartphones running the latest iteration of Android. That device's release was postponed a number of times thus far, and it seems like the company will introduce it at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 in Barcelona, but nothing has been confirmed just yet. The phone is rumored to arrive in both Snapdragon 845 and 855 variants, which would be an odd move on HMD's part, but there you have it.
