Here’s when your Nokia smartphone will get the Android Pie update

If there’s one thing that gives Nokia smartphones have is an edge over the others, is the fact that they get timely software updates. All Nokia smartphones launched by HMD Global are a part of Google’s Android One program and have always been one of the first to get the latest software updates. We can say that Nokia 8 Sirocco was an exception to this, as it got the Android Pie update a little late, but it was still ahead of many smartphones from other makers.

While some Nokia smartphones have already got the Android Pie update, the company has just shed some light on when the rest of its devices will be getting updated. Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global has just released the company’s Android Pie roadmap for its Nokia smartphones that haven’t got the latest update yet.

According to the roadmap that has been released by HMD Global’s Sarvikas, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.1 Plus smartphones will be getting the Android Pie update by the end of this month. This is a very big deal considering that both the smartphones lie in the budget segment.

To recall, Nokia 3.1 Plus features a 6-inch full-screen HD+ display, is powered by Helio P22 processor clubbed with 3GB of RAM and houses a 3,500mAh battery. The device was launched in October 2018.

Speaking of Nokia 5, it was launched earlier than Nokia 3.1 Plus in July 2017 and it is less capable when the two are compared. The smartphone has a 5.2-inch HD display with larger bezels and capacitive buttons than the ones on Nokia 3.1 Plus and it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC clubbed with 3GB of RAM. Nokia 5 houses a 3,000mAh battery.

It is particularly impressive to see Nokia 5 get the Android Pie update considering its launch date. Otherwise, rarely do dated devices with these specifications get the latest Android update.

That’s not all. It has also been announced that Nokia 6, Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 2.1 will also be getting the Android Pie update in Q1 2019 itself. And Nokia 3 and Nokia 1 will get the update in Q2.
