Nokia’s new phones will be getting the one thing all Android fans want

Posted:  June 2, 2017   By:    7 comments   

It’s no secret that Nokia‘s back in the smartphone business and the company that has the licence to produce Nokia-branded devices, HMD Global, has made a declaration that will be music to every Android fan’s ears.

In a report by TechRadar, an HMD Global spokesperson confirmed that the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 will be updated to Android O once the upcoming version of the mobile OS gets released to Google’s OEM partners.

This is an awesome move to update all their phones, even the most entry-level one, to the latest version of Android. Updating budget phones with new versions of Android is quite rare and it’s something even big, established brands struggle to do. So the fact that HMD Global outright confirmed that these phones will be getting updated is certainly good news.

It means that the company is keeping to one of their core promises when they launched the trio of Nokia Android smartphones — frequent software updates. HMD says that one of the key selling points for Nokia’s devices was frequent software updates (including monthly security updates) and a pure stock Android experience.

These updates not only serve to improve your phone when it comes to software features and performance, it also helps keep your device safe from known exploits that may have cropped up in between security patches.

We don’t know how long the Nokia phones will continue to receive Android version updates but here’s to hoping they do for at least a few years.

Woo. The colour is stunning.


Wowww. .Fantastic


Sometimes it is better to not receive any further update after 2-3 years.

Phone manufacturers have resort to further updating which make the phone consume more battery for needless functions and making the phone lag. Then only you will think to buy new phone.

Even Apple had begun doing the same thing. All my iPad Mini2, iPad 4 are lagging so bad nowadays after iOS 10.


    Stupid fandroid always talk bad Apple.

Mimosa Pudica

Waiting nokia phone with carl zeiss lens again. Should be better than sony lens. For compact camera i do still prefer carl zeiss lens in sony body compared to sony g lens.


i really love to see Nokia come back, but there always 1 problem with Nokia. And that is price. Nokia 6 official price is about RM1699 which we can get better spec with better price on other phone. So Nokia if u read this, study the market, you are no longer a high and mighty that once you were.


    Same as those china phones…
