The declaration comes by means of an official post on the Nokia forum, expressing that HMD Global has stayed faithful to its obligation of conveying real software and security updates for its most seasoned Nokia phones for two years. Presently, the company is stretching out help up to the end of the third year for the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 8. Notwithstanding, the extra help will come as quarterly security patch updates, as opposed to significant Android version updates with new features.

Further subtleties have been partaken in the post, expressing that the Nokia 3 will be the principal telephone to begin getting quarterly updates for a year beginning September 2019. The Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and Nokia 8 will have the extra software support beginning from October 2019, but at the same time it merits referencing here that the Nokia 6 sold in India and the United States on Amazon will not be getting this extra support. Besides, the Nokia 2 will likewise have its security patch support conclude in November 2019.

Extra security patch updates aren’t exactly as energizing and practical as full updates,but any additional help from HMD Global comes as a little something extra for users. This will guarantee that the phones remain secure for an additional year, further expanding the worth and lifespan of the devices. Newer models aren’t referenced in the post, however it’s safe to accept that they’ll be in line for the guaranteed two years of significant updates, just as the recently reported three years of security updates.
