Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, Nokia 8 to Receive Android P Update: HMD Global



Just recently, HMD Global confirmed that the Android 8.0 Oreo update will be making its way to the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 smartphones before the end of this year.

This is line with the company’s promises at launch that its Nokia Android smartphones will run stock Android with frequent updates. HMD Global has now revealed that the current lot of its Android smartphones, i.e., Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 8, will receive the Android P update as well.

This means that all current Nokia Android smartphones will be provided with two major OS upgrades – Android Oreo and Android P. This kind of support for non-Nexus and non-Pixel smartphones seems to be an impressive feat and especially so for Nokia 3, which is the cheapest model out of the three and falls in the budget segment category.

As if this was not enough, HMD Global’s Chief Technology Officer has also revealed that the company is now open to the idea of unlocking the bootloaders of its Nokia-branded phones. The news comes after the company initially said it wouldn’t unlock the bootloaders. The decision effectively means that even after the company ends its official support for the smartphones, you will be able to keep your handset up-to-date with custom ROM builds. In his tweet, however, Mikko Jaakkola said, “We would unlock one model at the time. What device would you unlock first?”

This means that it might take some time for the company to unlock the bootloaders and will happen for devices one at a time. As of now, HMD Global seems to be heading in the right direction and if this trend continues, we can expect Nokia to develop a loyal user base once again.
