The brand-licensee of Nokia smartphones, HMD Global is keeping its two year update promise. With Nokia 6 updated to Android 9 Pie, the company is almost on its way to upgrade all Nokia smartphones to the latest version of Android.
The Finnish startup took over Nokia brand and launched first set of Nokia smartphones two years back at MWC 2017. The lineup also included Nokia 6, which was shipped with stock Android 7.1 Nougat at that time. Now the company has pushed out the last firmware upgrade for the Nokia 6. HMD’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, announced the update on his Twitter account noting, “Keeping up with our promise of 2 years of Android updates, Nokia 6 (2017) is now officially running on Android 9, Pie! Nokia phones get smarter over time.”
The Android 9 Pie OTA update for Nokia 6 (2017) model is likely to roll out gradually. In case you want to check the update for your device, you should head over to the phone’s settings.
