A few days ago, HMD Global revealed its plans to roll out Android 11 to a range of supported smartphones going back to the Nokia 8.1 released in late 2018. As we noted at the time, though, the company has yet to finish its rollout of Android 10, with a couple of smartphones listed in its roadmap still not having the update at all. Today, the company is getting a little closer to that goal, though, as Android 10 is now rolling out to the low-end Nokia 3.1.
First revealed in the summer of 2018, the Nokia 3.1 is one of the oldest smartphones to get the update, and this is the second generational Android update it's getting, since it released with Android Oreo (version 8).
As usual, the rollout is happening in waves, and only a few markets are getting the update for now. Those markets are:
In line with the usual practice for Nokia phones, only 10% of users in these markets are getting the update today. By October 10, it will roll out to 50% of users, and by October 12, everyone in these markets should have it. Other markets should receive it later on.
With the Nokia 3.1 out of the way, the only phone on HMD Global's roadmap that has yet to get the update is the Nokia 5.1, announced alongside the 3.1. Hopefully, it won't take much longer now.
