New Delhi : Nokia, a public limited telecommunication company has made a comeback in the global market when HMD Global reveals the first set of Android-powered handsets back at MWC 2017. And, since launch, the Finnish brand has been known to provide latest Android updates for most of the handsets in its line-up. Ahead of the Nokia 2, Nokia 3, and Nokia 5 launch scheduled this year, the company had confirmed that Android P will be unfolded to all Nokia phones launched till date.

The news, however, has no official information on the availability of the Android P update. But, some users are supposedly being told the rollout will start from August this year.

According to NokiaPowerUser report, a user has shared a screenshot showing an email allegedly from Nokia Mobile Care. In the email, the user has been informed, "All other Nokia devices are expected to get Android P on sometime in August. [sic]" This means that a steady version of the new Android build will begin launched next month. Remarkably, the specific timelines for the rollout for individual Nokia handsets are yet to be disclosed.

A Nokia licensee HMD Global has confirmed several times in the past that all of its Nokia smartphones will receive the latest Android P update. Nokia is known to be the fastest adopters of Google's Android updates. To remember, at Google I/O 2018, the Nokia 7 Plus became one of the first third-party handsets to receive Android P Developer Preview 2. Additionally, HMD Global's global marketing manager, Neil Broadley had previously noted that Android P software update will arrive across all price segments in Nokia's lineup, from the budget Nokia 1 to the premium Nokia 8 Sirocco.
