Unlike its larger rivals, HMD Global has promised to update Android in a timely manner, and to be fair, the company has done its best given the current environment, according tomedia reports. Although the roadmap for Android 10 has been adjusted due to the new crown pandemic, it is still very late to launch these updates.
But now that Nokia’s last batch of products has finally got the Android 10 update they promised, HMD Global may finally be able to focus on Android 11, let alone release the leaked roadmap.
HMD Global proudly said last year that it was the fastest company to go from N to O to P, but that record could be broken in Q, or Android 10. Of course, it’s not entirely its fault, because of the new crown, it had to postpone some updates. Still, Nokia has promised that the last batch of Nokia handsets will be 2020.
Of course, it’s better to do it late than not, and Nokia 3.1 has finally launched Android 10. Juho Sarvikas, Nokia’s chief product officer, added that Nokia 5.1 would soon do the same. The two phones are the last ones the company has promised to upgrade to Android 10.
This means that the Android 11 upgrade cycle can begin. A short update schedule indicates that new product launches will begin in the current quarter, starting with Nokia 8.3 5G, Nokia 5.3, Nokia 2.2 and Nokia 8.1. The timetable may be a bit optimistic, as Nokia Mobile quickly deleted the tweet.
