A number of OEMs have begun sending out the update to Android Pie and HMD isn’t one to be left out. In fact, the Finnish company can be said to be well ahead of the pack, as it has sent out the Android Pie update to two devices, the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 6.1. While that’s already commendable, the company will build on that good form in the near future, with confirmation that it plans on sending out the Pie update to its last-gen devices.

HMD Global, using the Nokia trademark, launched the Nokia 6, Nokia 8, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3 in the first half of 2017. The devices ran on Android Nougat and received Oreo shortly after it was released. According to Juho Sarvikas, HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, the four devices are scheduled to receive Pie too. That would make it two major OS updates the devices receive, fulfilling the promise of the OEM, which is more than can be said for most companies in the business. 

While a number of OEMs promise two major updates for their flagships—sometimes failing to actually deliver—it’s almost unseen to see a company send two OS updates to its budget devices. The Nokia brand has been built on a platform of great customer service and support, so it’s a nice touch to see that tradition being continued.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
