HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, today announced the Nokia 7.1 as its latest smartphone to join the Android 10 rollout.

HMD Global has made good on its promise to update three devices in Q4 2019 and is on track to have more of its Smartphones running Android 10 by early 2020.
As an Android One program smartphone, the Nokia 7.1 launched with a promise of three years of guaranteed monthly security updates and two years of OS upgrades. As of today the Nokia 7.1, Nokia 9 PureView, and Nokia 8.1 will be upgraded to Android 10.
