Commenting on the news, HMD Global Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, said:
Nokia's level of transparency for its update plans is great to see, as is the wealth of devices slated to receive Android 10. Now, if only companies like Samsung and LG took a note out of Nokia's book.
Android 10 is coming
An excellent mid-ranger that'll soon be rocking Android 10.
The Nokia 7.1 is one of the best mid-range phones you can buy in the U.S., largely due to its premium design, gorgeous HDR display, and clean software. The phone's even better these days, as the price has come down and an Android 10 update has been confirmed before the end of the year.
No mention of the unloved Nokia 8....oh well, I have received two major updates and I'm probably being greedy.
Yours better off getting a new phone now, ok good as my Nokia 8.1 will among the first to get Android 10.
Huh. So I guess I better read up some more on Android 10 Queludes as my device is one of those scheduled to receive the OS upgrade in 2019... Who knew that there are companies who actually bother to deliver necessary updates to their customers in a timely manner? Rather than say complete abandonment like cough...TCL... cough... BlackBerry Mobile... cough...🤪
That's because Nokia (HMD Global) are showing what a decent OEM they are and are one of the few OEMs who are transparent about their update plans
Hopefully the news that Nokia is releasing an Android 10 update schedule to start in the next quarter means their phones will have all received the Android 9 update sometime soon ...
This makes me glad that I chose Nokia instead of Samsung for my first Android.
