HMD Global is keeping up its release cadence for the Android 10 update on Nokia-branded smartphones, and the Nokia 6.2 is the latest to join the fray, following the Nokia 2.3 from last week, and other devices that got the update over the past few weeks. The company announced the release of the initial wave of the update on its community forums.
As usual, the post goes into detail regarding which markets will get the update in this initial wave. This time around, there are 38 countries to start with:
|Qatar||Russia||Saudi Arabia||Sri Lanka|
The rollout begins today with 10% of the devices in these markets getting the update. 50% of users can expect the update by May 1, and it should be available to everyone by May 3.
As for what you can expect, the changes shouldn’t be much different from the original Android 10 release, since Nokia’s Android implementation is very close to Google’s. That means you can expect features like a system-wide dark theme, new gesture navigation, and more.
The Nokia 6.2 is one of the devices planned to get the update at the start of the second quarter of 2020, but we’re almost at the end of April now, so that’s somewhat debatable. The Nokia 3.1 Plus was also expected to get the update in that timeframe, and it’s starting to look like there won’t be much of a wait until the next wave of devices on HMD’s roadmap starts getting the update as well.
