HMD Global is now ready to extend the Android 11 update to two more of its past phones – the Nokia 8.1 from 2018 and the Nokia 2.3 from 2019. Both of these are now in the process of receiving the update to the latest stable version of Google’s OS.
For the Nokia 8.1, the first wave includes units purchased in Bangladesh, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Macau, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam. 10% of units in these markets will receive the update notification immediately, 50% by April 10, and on April 12, 100% should be up to date. Then, at a later date, the second wave will include more countries and territories.
For the Nokia 2.3, the first wave consists of units sold in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hong Kong, Iceland, Latvia, Laos, Lithuania, Macau, Malaysia, Nepal, Norway, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Sweden, and Vietnam. The same release logic applies as to the 8.1 – 10% of units in these markets are getting the update notification immediately, 50% will have it by April 10, and 100% on April 12. Again, there will be a second wave at some point in the future.
