Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

HMD/Nokia are on a roll lately. The official Oreo update came to the Nokia 7 and Nokia 6 (2018) a few weeks ago and the Nokia 8 has even started beta testing Oreo 8.1, but the company is still firing on all cylinders and hasn't forgotten its older or lower range devices. Both the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6 are starting to get the official Oreo 8.0 update now.

Nokia hasn't been a player in smartphones for years, but it's back with the help of manufacturer HMD. There have been various Android-powered Nokia phones this year, and the latest is the mid-range Nokia 5. The Nokia phones of old have a reputation for being durable, but what about this new one? The JerryRigEverything YouTube channel seeks to find out. Spoiler: things went pretty well for the Nokia 5.

Android 8.0 Oreo beta hits Nokia 5, will arrive on Nokia 6 soon

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Nokia's actually been doing very well in the update game for its new line of phones under HMD, with incredibly quick security patch releases and software betas. For instance, the 'flagship' Nokia 8 got an Oreo beta back in late October, with the full update issued just a month later. Now development is trickling down to the lower-end models, namely the Nokia 5 and 6. The Oreo beta for the Nokia 5 is out now, with the 6's coming soon.

Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8 will get Android 8.0 Oreo

Monday, September 4th, 2017

The recent Nokia-branded phones from HMD Global have been pretty popular. The goal of a near-stock Android ROM with quick updates has also caused Android enthusiasts to take notice, especially as many budget phones don't receive major updates at all.

While HMD Global has been quick with smaller updates, like Android 7.1, the real test comes with major Android upgrades. Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, tweeted earlier today that the entire Nokia lineup will receive Oreo.

Nokia 5 and 6 start receiving August security patch on the same day as Nexus/Pixel devices

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

We at AP usually don't cover security patches for non-Google devices, as those are released for different models constantly, but we found this pretty interesting: Nokia began pushing the August 2017 security patch to the Nokia 5 and 6 yesterday, the very same day that Google did. Impressive work, HMD Global.

BlackBerry releases the monthly security patches at this time consistently, but since the whole company is security-focused, it'd be a bit of an embarrassment if anything else were true.

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

As I'm sure many of you know, HMD Global became the exclusive licensee of Nokia in 2016, and released the Nokia 6 in China earlier this year. At Mobile World Congress, two more models were announced - the Nokia 5 and 3. Starting today, Nokia/HMD has begun selling all three phones in India.
