We are hugely proud of the industry-leading process we have in place for Nokia smartphones and continue to make it a key priority of ours to ensure our customers benefit from the latest Android innovation ahead of the competition in every price point.”
Over a time of 3 years or more, the smartphones by Nokia have collectively been updated 1,000 times. This is an incredible milestone that reflects the company’s unwavering commitment to ensuring its fans are always using the most up-to-date features in the most secure environment.
