HMD Global's Nokia phones come with some of the cleanest Android builds around, but that still doesn't make the company the fastest to update its devices. It looks like the same will be true for the Android 11 rollout, as the company posted and then deleted a roadmap on when we can expect the latest software to hit the Nokia lineup, with the last phones slated to get the update in Q2 2021.
Google's been working on a call recording feature for its Phone app for some time, and it looks like the wait is almost over. As previously anticipated, the feature has started rolling out in India, seemingly beginning with Nokia's Android One phones, according to an announcement from the company today.
Slowly but surely, HMD Global has been rolling out Android 10 to its portfolio of Nokia-branded smartphones. The Nokia 3.2, 4.2, 8 Sirocco, and 2.3 have all received updates this month, and the next phone to get Android 10 is the Nokia 6.2.
The Nokia 6.1 has had a good run as one of the best mid-range Android phones on the market. HMD finally announced the 6.2 a few months back, but there was no firn US release timeline. Well, today is the day. The Nokia 6.2 is live on Amazon, priced at $249.
One significant detail regarding Nokia's newly-announced mid-range 6.2 and 7.2 slid under the radar yesterday, but it turns out the company's published spec sheets were in error. Although Nokia's website initially claimed the devices wouldn't get NFC in the US, Latin America, or India, those details were apparently incorrect. Only India will be missing NFC support.
HMD Global has just unveiled two new mid-range phones in the Nokia 6.2 and 7.2. CounterPoint rates HMD the number one OEM for the fast updates it delivers to Nokia phones and the company says it's committed to being even faster with Android 10. At today's event at IFA in Berlin, the renewal of the mid-tier Nokia lineup was the hot topic, with the same focus on delivering a premium Nokia experience at a fraction of flagship prices.
