HMD Global has decided to reward its loyal customers by adding a year of security updates. The company announced that it’s going to extend security updates for Nokia phones released in 2017 up to 2020. Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 will receive regular security updates for one more year.
Nokia devices run pure Android. Pure Android has made these phones very popular among individuals who don’t want to be burdened by bloatware. People also love them because they are affordable. Nokia has some of the best cheap phones in Kenya.
HMD Global acquired the Nokia brand from Microsoft in 2016 and started manufacturing Nokia branded phones in 2017. Many people thought the little know company might not be able to get the Nokia brand its former glory. Since resurrecting the Nokia brand, the company has released several smartphone models that have been well received by consumers.
The four devices will receive four more updates. Nokia 3 will get its last update in September 2020 while Nokia 5, 6 and 8 will receive their last updates in October.
This is definitely good news to the owners of these Nokia handsets. However, many people are still wondering why Nokia 2 was left out. Nokia 2 last updated is expected in November 2019.
