Android 10 update is now rolling out for several of Nokia phones. Keeping up their promise of delivering the latest Android updates, HMD Global has updated most major Nokia phones from 2019 to Android 10. This latest OS upgrade brings a fresh new list of features and improvements that make your Nokia phone a delight to use.
What does Android 10 update bring to Nokia phones? Well, the list is long but we will try to list down a few highlights. First of all, Android 10 adds the most-requested feature of all times – dark mode. This mode changes the interface theme colour to dark shades, hence being easy on the eyes and consuming less battery. Also includes AI features like Smart Reply and suggested actions.
Android 10 Update Timeline
A couple of months back, Juho Sarvikas (CPO, HMD Global) tweeted an Android 10 update schedule timeline so you can know when to expect the new OS upgrade for your phone. So far, the company has been following that timeline. But with new phone releases, there have been some addition to the schedule.
This Android 10 update roadmap include Nokia devices till the second quarter of this year – 2020. Here is the roadmap by HMD Global:
As you can see, there are about 17 devices eligible for the Android 10 upgrade. However, this number should be about 20 now with newer additions like the Nokia 7.2, Nokia 6.2 and the newly launched Nokia 2.3.
As per the Android 10 release timeline, here are all the eligible Nokia devices on track to receive this OS upgrade.
Q4 2019: Nokia 7.1, Nokia 8.1, Nokia 9 PureView
Early Q1 2020: Nokia 6.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 7 Plus
Mid Q1 2020: Nokia 2.2, Nokia 3.1 Plus, Nokia 3.2, Nokia 4.2
Late Q1 2020: Nokia 1 Plus, Nokia 5.1 Plus, Nokia 8 Sirocco
