Many expected new Nokia devices to launch when HMD Global took the stage at the MWC 2017 trade show last month. The company unveiled the new Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 Android phones and also confirmed global availability details for the Nokia 6 smartphone. Apart from announcing new Android phones, HMD Global had also affirmed that the devices will get regular updates.
Now, the company has reconfirmed that the Nokia brand, like several other Android handset OEMs, will be rolling out "Android updates and monthly security updates."
