A couple of days ago, HMD announced the timetable for upgrading the Android 11 system of Nokia phones. Of course, prior to this, there has been another list. But this one is slightly modified compared to the previous version. The information comes from Nokia employees. They disclosed the news in the official forum and said that users can look forward to Android 11 with reference to the picture below (new timetable).
In 2020, Nokia Engineering announced a similar timetable, but then they quickly withdrew it. However, at that time, we saw that some new models including the Nokia 8.3 5G, the Nokia 8.1, the Nokia 2.2, and the Nokia 5.3 will get Android 11 by Q4 2020. In the first quarter of this year, HMD Global had been planning to roll out Android 11 to the Nokia 1.3, Nokia 4.2, Nokia 2.4, Nokia 2.3 and Nokia 3.4. In the second quarter, the HMD phones to get Android 11 should be the Nokia 3.2, the Nokia 7.2, the Nokia 6.2, the Nokia 1 Plus, and the Nokia 9 PureView.
Some sources even noticed that the list lacks some models such as the Nokia 8 Sirocco and the budget Nokia 1.
Now, we see that the update time of many smartphones including the Nokia 1.3, 2.4, 3.4 has been postponed for one month, and the Nokia 6.2, 7.2 , 9 PureView is expected to be updated in the third quarter.
In fact, Nokia is not too late. Though Android 11 was released in February, it takes quite long before manufacturers develop skins based on a new version. In this sense, the still-little Nokia users shouldn’t complain of.
Latest Nokia Phones
Nokia held a press conference on April 8, 2021, and officially released a number of new smartphones. HMD said that in the future, the product line will be streamlined. They will abolish the use of digital naming and use three product series X/G/C instead. The newly launched models X20 and X10 come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 processor. Also, they support dual-mode 5G and have a 6.7-inch LCD full-screen with a hole in the upper center area. The price starts at 250 euros. In addition, the company also announced G20, G10 and C20, C10 entry-level smartphones. We mean HMD is still fighting in the mid-to-low-end niches. But the company is still trying to recover. And if succeeds, we may see genuine flagships as well.
