When HMD Global Oy started manufacturing Android smartphones, people grew curious by the moment. HMD was still an unknown entity to the market and needed a well known and trusted brand name under which it could develop and market its devices. The company, on numerous occasions, promised regular updates to complement its devices and has not missed even a single monthly update as of yet.
The Nokia 6, which is only available in Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong, received the latest build weighing about 150MB and updates the device to the latest July security patch, even before OnePlus and Pixel devices. The update currently is now being rolled out in Taiwan and Hong Kong with China slated for the update in the next week. The Nokia 6 is currently on Android 7.1.1
Furthermore, HMD has stated its intentions of providing software and security updates up to 2 years which makes Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 eligible to receive Android O update.
