Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global said in a statement, “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.”
