Nokia to support first Android phones for another year

HMD extends support for the Nokia 8, 6, 5 and 3 by a year - GSMArena.com news

These are usually aimed to keep Android users safe and protect their devices.

I know that security updates are not so interesting, but somehow I get excited every time I see it on the phone. Usually, they end security support for 2 years but now they are extending it to their 2017 devices.

HMD Global isn't the only Android phone manufacturer to support devices over two years after release.

They are doing this in a different way.

Pat Cummins wants to play all five Ashes Tests
The Barbados-born pacer recently helped England win the World Cup and is being widely backed to break into the Test team too. Don't be satisfied with victory in the first Test, focus on maintaining the same intensity through the five matches.

"After two years of monthly updates, the Nokia 3 will be the first model to start receiving quarterly updates from September 2019 until September 2020", the Nokia brand licensee noted in its forum. Beginning with the Nokia 3 in September the Nokias 5, 6 and 8 will receive these ongoing quarterly updates from October. These devices have been receiving security updates for nearly 2 years now and HMD is extending that support by another year.

The Nokia 2 will get its last security patch in November of 2019 while Amazon-branded Nokia 6 in the United States and India will get their last security patch in October 2019.

There are some caveats.

Nokia 6: Quarterly updates starting October 2019, ending October 2020. HMD Global has also confirmed that security patch support for the Nokia 2 will conclude in November 2019.
