The entry-level Nokia 2.3 is the latest Nokia smartphone to receive its Android 10 updated.
Scheduled to get its update last month, the device’s update, along those of other Nokia smartphones, was delayed and pushed ahead after HMD Global was forced to do so due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The update, which clocks in at 1.1GB, arrives with the March 2020 security patch and not the April one that the Nokia 8 Sirocco came with.
According to HMD Global, the update is already seeding in the so-called first wave markets – countries in Asia and Europe that usually get first dibs on updates.
As per the updated roadmap, we can expect similar Android 10 upgrades for the Nokia 3.1 Plus and Nokia 6.2 to drop anytime now.
Later on, the Nokia 5.1 Plus and the Nokia 1 Plus will follow. They will then be followed by the Nokia 1, Nokia 2.1, Nokia 3.1 and Nokia 5.1.
Launched late last year at an event in Egypt and made available in Kenya a week later, the Nokia 2.3, is one of HMD Global’s newest devices in the market. As such, given the company’s track record with updates, it came as a surprise that it went to market with a dated version of Android, 9 Pie, thereby reducing, a bit, its expected life with updates as HMD Global guarantees up to 2 major software updates and 3 years of security updates.
