Running on Android One, Nokia smartphones were supposed to get updates very quickly, thanks to the partnership with Google and the pure stock Android interface. However, it now seems that Nokia smartphones will get the Android 10 update later than planned. Regardless, Juho Sarvikas says that Nokia will still be the fastest brand to update its smartphones.

Coronavirus pandemic around the globe

Apart from China, the epicenter, the coronavirus has now claimed 1,130 lives in other countries, according to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO). The new toll as of Wednesday morning was an increase by 258 deaths from the previous day, Xinhua news agency quoted the report as saying.

Many technology giants have been forced to cancel their events due to the coronavirus outbreak. It started with the Mobile World Congress which was scheduled to take place towards the end of February. After many companies pulled out of the event, GSMA had to cancel the event altogether. Later, Google, Microsoft, and other companies were forced to cancel a lot of events. Now, most recent launches including the Realme 6 series and the Redmi Note 9 series took place online. The upcoming E3 gaming event was also recently canceled due to the outbreak.
