The advent of Android Go software for lightweight smartphones and Google's mandate on coupling them together has made the update difficult.
It seems to be, according to media sources, that it's all going to be covered. All the phones HMD has made will be getting Android 9.
New and old, low and high-end (and mid-range), all of HMD Global's Nokia-branded smartphones are now officially guaranteed to receive Android P updates... eventually.
The new Nokia 2 carries on the original's mission of two-day battery life with new hardware and a better multimedia experience at a low price.
There is no clear indication of what the Nokia smartphone brand licensee wants to do in Russia, but fans have plenty of ideas.
The quad-core MediaTek-powered Nokia 3 is HMD Global's latest smartphone to receive over-the-air Oreo goodies, while the Nokia 1 and 6 are the company's first with kernel source code out.
HMD Global's low to mid-end Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 are starting to receive official Android 8.0 Oreo goodies after completing public beta tests.
It obviously comes as no surprise that there are a bunch of new Nokia smartphones in the pipeline, but the Nokia 4 name still seems highly unlikely.
The brand licensee, HMD Global, was able to make the bulk of those shipments in the summer quarter after a weak start earlier in the year.
Apparently. Sales hit the ground on Amazon and stock depleted quickly. Meantime, Best Buy and B&H Photo are still on pre-orders.
The second HMD-made Android smartphone to officially see daylight stateside is an overall modest $99 Nokia 2 with a huge battery in tow.
HMD Global has elected to unveil its humblest smartphone yet rather than its most powerful model. But the Nokia 2 is by no means a pushover.
HMD's most modest and powerful smartphones are yet to come, with the Nokia 2 likely to fetch $99, and the Nokia 9 featuring a rear fingerprint sensor.
Based on a pair of (ev) leaked renders, HMD's entry-level Nokia 2 looks largely identical to the 3. But will it pack a 4000mAh battery?
Alongside a very humble Snapdragon 212 processor and 1GB RAM, HMD Global's impending Nokia 2 is now expected to pack 4000mAh battery juice.
Is there still a market for 1GB RAM smartphones? We may find out soon enough, as HMD seemingly tries to squeeze the Nokia 2 between the 3310 and 3.
HMD is still struggling with global Nokia 3, 5 and 6 availability, but credible sources have something to share about the upcoming 2, 7, 8 and 9.
One of Nokia's not-so-powerful future smartphones may pack a Xiaomi-designed Surge S1 processor as part of the two companies' new alliance.
As the brand licensee for Nokia smartphones serves Asia, where the number 4 tends to be a homophone for "death," perhaps we're better off with a Nokia 2.
