While we wait for Nokia and HMD Global to launch their latest line of smartphones showcased at MWC this year, older Nokia phones are getting Android updates. According to NPU, the company is pushing out Android 8.1 Oreo update for the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 in India. The two phones were part of the phone trio which was launched in India with Android when the company made its global debut last year. The latest Android update to the Nokia phones brings features like “battery saving navigation buttons” and the latest March Security patch. The new update also brings changes to the settings menu, the power menu and a very useful Bluetooth battery percentage indicator has been added as well.

Nokia, which made a comeback last year with HMD global and launched half a dozen Android-powered phones, has had a good track record of updating it's older phones in a relatively timely fashion. Last year phones such as the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6 got their stable Android 8.0 update respectively and now are reportedly receiving the 8.1 update. Both the phones which were launched last year at MWC 2017 and are powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC. In India the Nokia 5 is currently selling for around Rs 11,000 and the slightly bigger Nokia 6 is being sold at Rs 13,000 (approx).

The Nokia 6 is likely to be replaced by the recently announced Nokia 6 (2018) which is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC and may come with the option of either 3GB or 4GB RAM. The Nokia 6 (2018) is likely to launch alongside the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 8 Sirocco. While the Nokia 8 Sirocco is a revamped version of the older Nokia 8, the Nokia 7 Plus is an all-new device by the company. It features a 6-inch, 18:9 aspect ratio display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC.
