HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, is one of the few manufacturers to promise updates across a variety of price segments for up to three years.

Counterpoint Research revealed that Nokia phones lead the trust rankings based on the four pillars of software, security updates, build quality and devices recommended for enterprises for the second year running. The Nokia 8.3 5G launched with the promise of three years’ worth of security updates and two years of OS upgrades. The promise ensures that Nokia smartphones stay safe, secure and up to date for consumers. The upgrade to Android 11 marks the first OS upgrade of the handset and substantiates HMD Global’s commitment to its Android promise.

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer and Vice President of North America, HMD Global, said: “Counterpoint Research has recognised us for providing the fastest deployments for the past two consecutive Android OS upgrades regardless of price on a portfolio level and we will continue our commitment for even our most affordable Android 11-ready handsets. The Nokia 8.3 5G has opened the flood gates for our Android 11 upgrade journey with many more of our smartphones soon to join the ranks.

“Bringing the latest operating system to a smartphone portfolio is by no means an easy feat. It is an intricate process involving a multitude of partners and a variety of tests. I’m thrilled by our team’s dedication in bringing the next step in Android OS innovation to our Nokia smartphone customers. We want to ensure that Nokia phone users have high-quality and safe smartphone experiences, which are intrinsic to our company’s ethos.”
