There are few smartphone makers who keep their promise when it comes to OS updates. Those who do are changing the industry for good. Nokia is also one of them, and it’s once again setting an example for others in the smartphone market in quintessential Nokia fashion. The company today announced that it’s updating its cheapest smartphone Nokia 1 to Android Pie. With this, the entire lineup of Nokia smartphones is now running Android Pie regardless of its price. That’s how things should be done!
Nokia 1 Android Pie Update Announcement
The announcement came from the company’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas on his Twitter handle. He proudly proclaimed in the announcement that “now there’s a Nokia smartphone for everyone running Pie.” Here is his tweet:
Excited to share that our most affordable smartphone, Nokia 1, upgrades to Android 9 Pie starting today. Now there is a Nokia smartphone for everyone running Pie – bringing to you the latest experiences from Google. Nokia phones just keep getting better #Getsmart #Nokiamobile pic.twitter.com/BYONKx6q5n

The fact that Nokia 1 is receiving an update as big as Pie is highly commendable. It’s a $90 smartphone with just 1GB of RAM, and no other device around its range is running Pie at the moment. This certainly makes it stand out from the crowd. Nokia 1 may not be the best smartphone in the industry, but it can certainly be a good first smartphone for anyone. And after Android Pie people have got one more reason to buy it. Nokia is diligently keeping its promise of providing updates for 2 years to every smartphone, so anyone purchasing this phone can hope for future updates too.
There are a very few companies that have their entire Android phone lineup a new version of Android (Only Google and Essential can claim this). And their lineup, as everybody knows, is limited to a maximum of 5-6 devices only. It’s only HMD Global – or Nokia, as it’s popularly known – which can proudly declare that it updated its entire lineup of almost two dozen devices to Android Pie. We expect the company to maintain these high standards in the future too.
