The problem with Android updates is that unless you own a Pixel handset, if and when the latest Android update is released for your device is really anyone’s guess. Some manufacturers are faster than others, but once again it isn’t exactly predictable. However HMD Global wants to take out some of the guesswork involved.
The company’s chief product officer Juho Sarvikas recently shared an image on Twitter where it basically laid out the roadmap for the company’s plans to update their Nokia handsets to Android Pie. It lists devices that have already received the update, as well as devices that are due to receive the update.
From what we can tell, it seems that the company would have updated all of its Nokia handsets by Q2 2019. No specific dates were mentioned or provided so we’ll still need to keep an eye out for that. However the last phone to receive the update would be the Nokia 1 and Nokia 3 which will receive theirs in early Q2 2019.
HMD is expected to launch new phones in the meantime, like the Nokia 9 PureView with its rumored penta-lens camera setup. Presumably the company’s phones in 2019 should launch with Android 9.0 Pie preinstalled, but we’ll keep an eye out anyway.
