The Nokia 2.3 was the last Nokia phone to receive the Android 10 update this month. Other phones that received the update this month are Nokia 7.2, Nokia 4.2, Nokia 8, and Nokia 3.2. These updates seem to be on track with the revised roadmap shared by HMD Global. Notably, the company had to revise its roadmap due to disruptions caused by coronavirus.
