Nokia has reportedly outlined the roll-out plan that upgrades its smartphones to stable Android 13, including a short list of the first wave of the devices in question. Some are those with pre-existing betas for the new major software upgrade; however, all have certain things in common, a relatively recent launch date and a tendency to be used at work included.

Nokia has been on the list of OEMs compatible with Android 13 betas since their announcement; however, it has yet to unveil an upgrade based on the stable OS since its own release. Now, however, the HMD Global brand has reportedly confirmed that at least some of its newer devices will see the update soon.

Some, like the X20, are fairly obvious candidates. The complete list is as follows:

All are fairly new devices (albeit not the newest), and all support 5G. However (with the exception of the XR20), none cost much over US$300 at launch. They are or should be on Android 12 at the moment, like all other devices to upgrade to its successor in the second wave, according to Nokia.

They are also all in the Android Enterprise Recommended program, which might help explain why they are first in line for the upcoming OTA install. Then again, Nokia has yet to specify exactly when any of the 5 smartphones should start upgrading.
