INTRO: In a curious turn of events, HMD Global on Monday withdrew its Android 11 update timeline for Nokia smartphones shortly after making the announcement on Twitter. In a tweet that has since been deleted, the official Nokia Mobile account announced that quite a dozen devices are eligible to urge the update, starting Q4, 2020.
Some of the devices on the list shipped with Android 9, therefore the HMD Global is seemingly adhering to its three-year update promise. That said, it isn’t immediately clear on why the corporate deleted the tweet, so it’ll be interesting to ascertain if of these devices will eventually receive the update. While the first tweet is now lo longer available, a screenshot of the post was saved for posterity by Neowin, suggesting that the corporate will update even entry-level devices like the Nokia 1 Plus and therefore the Nokia 1.3.
As can be seen in the screenshot above, the first set of devices to get Android 11 will be the Nokia 8.3 5G, the Nokia 8.1, the Nokia 2.2 and the Nokia 5.3, all of which are apparently on target to urge the update before the top of this year. The next set of devices, which are slated to urge the update in Q1, 2021, include the Nokia 1.3, Nokia 4.2, Nokia 2.4, Nokia 2.3 and Nokia 3.4.
The final set of smartphones to urge the update include the Nokia 3.2, the Nokia 7.2, the Nokia 6.2, the Nokia 1 Plus and therefore the Nokia 9 PureView. According to the post, they should get the update in Q2 next year. That said, it isn’t immediately clear on why the HMD deleted the tweet, so it’ll be interesting to ascertain if the corporate will stick with the list and to the timeline going forward.
