HMD Global is rolling out Android 10 to the Nokia 1
HMD Global is one of the better companies when it comes to Android updates. Not only do they provide updates for their newest devices, but they also continue to support older devices. As the licensee of the Nokia smartphone brand, HMD Global announced the Nokia 1 budget smartphone back in 2018 running Android Oreo. The device later received an update to Android 9 Pie. Now, HMD Global is rolling out an Android 10 update as well.
Android 10 marks the second major version update for the Nokia 1. That’s something we commonly see for flagship devices but not on low-end smartphones that cost under $100. It’s these low-end phones that typically see more long-term use from consumers, so it’s great that HMD Global is committed to updating them. The Android 10 update for the Nokia 1 is rolling out in waves starting today.
Wave 1 starts in these regions:
- Sri Lanka
HMD Global says 100% of Nokia 1 devices in these regions should have the update by July 12th. The software version is 3.090 and it comes in at 859MB in size. The usual Android 10 goodies, including system-wide dark mode and new privacy and location controls, are present along with the June 2020 security patches.
