Nokia 3, 5 and 6 confirmed to receive Android Pie updates soon : HMD Global announced early this month that four smartphones will be updated to Android Pie by the end of November: Nokia 6.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco. If the company keeps its promise, it will have at least five smartphones running Android Pie since Nokia 7 Plus already received the update.
Today, the handset maker confirmed another set of three Nokia-branded smartphones will be updated to Android Pie: Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. However, they will most likely get the update after the first wave of devices that have already been confirmed at the beginning of the month.
That’s because Google releases a new Android OS update to the chipset vendor, and then it makes it available to the handset maker, in this case, HMD Global. That’s also the reason the Finnish company releases Android Pie updates in stages rather than all at once.
So, if you own one of the three Nokia smartphones mentioned in the title, you’ll probably get an Android Pie update early next year, but we expect HMD to make some announcements closer to release.
