Commenting on the performance of smartphone brands, Tarun Pathak (Associate Director, Counterpoint Research) said :
Among the top 10 smartphone makers, nearly 96% of Nokia smartphones, sold cumulatively since Q3 2018, are already running on Android Pie or have had an Android Pie update issued to them. Samsung closely follows Nokia with 89% and Xiaomi with 84%.
Further he added :
There are a lot of factors that play a role in issuing software updates. But some brands put much more effort into reducing the time lag from the release of the latest Android version to issuing the update to all their smartphones. Only a few brands commit to making sure their smartphones are always running the latest version. Nokia was the fastest brand in issuing the latest software updates covering 94% of its portfolio within a year of the launch of the latest Android version
Counterpoint has also shared the data for time taken by manufacturers to upgrade their smartphones to the latest Android version. Check it out below :
