Released back in 2018 for the low, low price of just $85, the Nokia 1 has been one of the most affordable Android options on the market. In our review, we found that it maybe made a bit too many compromises to reach that price point, but one area that Nokia didn't compromise on is software updates. Despite being a sub-$100 phone from over two years ago, the Nokia 1 is now receiving an upgrade to Android 10.

HMD Global's Nokia-branded devices are some of the best budget phones currently available, with relatively-fast updates and no heavy modifications to Android. Now you can get the entry-level Nokia 4.2 for just $130 on Amazon, a savings of $29 from the usual price of around $159.
Another wave of phones is just about to arrive at AT&T prepaid carrier Cricket Wireless starting this Friday. All of them, being Nokia phones, are courtesy of HMD Global and all of them cost under $200.
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.
The Nokia 5.1 Plus might not be the brand's most powerful device, but it's still part of the company's promise to deliver software updates to its handsets. Nokia actually announced the 5.1 Plus would get Android 10 during Q2, and the update is being released according to the commitment.
Nokia is a bit behind schedule on its Android 10 update roadmap, but it's slowly but surely getting around to each device. We're now more than two months past the Nokia 3.1 Plus's end-of-March update target, but hey, at least it's rolling out now.
Even with a global pandemic going on, HMD Global has continued updating its (very) large portfolio of Nokia phones to Android 10. The Nokia 3.2, 4.2, 6.2, 8 Sirocco, and 2.3 have all received updates this month, and now the low-end Nokia 1 Plus is next in line.
