Recently HMD announced the list of Nokia smartphones which will receive the Android 10 (Q) upgrade but there are many users asking us about the same update for their Nokia 2, 3, 5, 6 & 8. Because these devices were missing from the list provided by HMD. If you’re using any one from these devices then this article is especially for you. Unfortunately none of the above mentioned devices will receive the Android 10 (Q) update. But you may have a question, Why ? Let’s take a look at the reason :

They have already received 2 major OS upgrades :

When HMD Global launched the above mentioned Nokia smartphones running on Android OS they promised that each device will get 2 major OS upgrades & 3 years of security patch updates. Keeping their promise HMD has already pushed 2 major OS upgrades for Nokia 3, 5, 6 & 8. All of them were originally launched with Android Nougat 7.0/7.1. Just after few months of launching they received their first major OS upgrade Android 8.0/8.1 Oreo. Currently all of them (except Nokia 2) are running on the Android 9.0 Pie which is the second big upgrade for them.

Even if the Nokia 3, 5, 6 & 8 will not get the Android 10 (Q) but they will receive the quarterly security patch updates till October 2020 (September 2020 for Nokia 3). While Nokia 2 is still running on Android Oreo. But the bad news is it will be only getting the monthly security patches until November 2019.

I hope now you got the answers for your questions.
