Nokia 1 is the final phone in the Nokia smartphone portfolio to receive the upgrade to Android 9 Pie, which means that now there is a Nokia smartphone for everyone running the latest Android OS from Google, leaving the Nokia smartphone portfolio well equipped with the latest software to ensure the experience keeps getting better for all. 

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global: “With Nokia 1 getting its very own slice of Pie, we now have a full portfolio of Nokia phones on Android 9 Pie, starting at just sub $80. This changes the industry paradigm – for too long consumers have had to accept older OS versions as the norm on entry-level smartphones. We are living our promise to deliver a phone that will keep getting better over time through the latest experiences and always being up-to-date. And with the Nokia 1 upgrade to Google’s latest OS, fans can get up-to-the-minute software experiences and innovations from Google even in the most affordable segment.” 

Over the past two years, Nokia phones have received over 300 security updates altogether and have successfully upgraded handsets to the latest OS twice as fast as competitors.
