The Nokia 6 from 2017 was the first Android Nokia device from HMD Global, which previously had bought the rights to the brand. Now, that two-years-old phone is getting an update to Android 9 Pie, fulfilling HMD’s promise to give at least two years of updates to its devices.

That means the Nokia 6 will receive at least three flavors of Android: it started on Nougat, went to Oreo, and is now getting Pie.

Take note, other companies — this is how it’s done!

HMD Global happily announced the release with a tweet from CPO Juho Sarvikas:

HMD Global recently promised to update nearly every Nokia phone it’s released to Android 9 Pie and so far is keeping its word. The last few remaining stragglers will likely get the update by the end of the second quarter this year.

Nokia 6 review

Before HMD Global unveiled the Nokia 8, the Nokia 6 was the highest spec’d smartphone from the company, a company which describes itself as a startup but that carries the strong legacy of the Nokia brand. …

We fully expect to finally see the Nokia 9 PureView — HMD’s biggest release to date, featuring a whopping five camera lenses on the back — at Mobile World Congress, which starts in a few days. Judging from the release history for the Nokia 6, it’s likely the Nokia 9 PureView will launch with Pie and then receive both Android Q and Android R, making the device a quality investment as far as Android updates are concerned.
