HMD Global’s entry-level smartphone, the Nokia 2.2, is now receiving its long-awaited Android 10 update.
The device, launched in June last year and made available in the Kenyan market a month later, is the only one that is getting its update as scheduled.
Last week, HMD Global was forced to adjust its Android 10 upgrade roadmap for the devices it is yet to update.
The move was blamed on the effects of the ravaging Coronavirus pandemic that has seen a global shutdown of various industries and affected the operations of organizations around the world.
Bringing the tear drop-style notch to Nokia’s entry-level smartphone lineup, the Nokia 2.2 arrived running Android 9 Pie. At its price point, it is one of a handful of smartphones available for purchase in the local market that is seeing any Android 10 love. Most of its peers are powered by the Go Edition of Android Pie. The Nokia 2.2, like other Nokia-branded devices in HMD Global’s portfolio, is an Android One smartphone.
Its successor, the Nokia 2.3, is next on the update block while its predecessor, the Nokia 2.1, will have to wait until mid or late Q2 for its Android 10 upgrade.
The update arrives with the February 2020 patch update.
