HMD offers Android 10 update for Nokia 2.1 - ITREALMS

Acclaimed home of Nokia phones, the 
HMD Global, is offering regular security and software updates across its range – irrespective of price point with the latest being that of Android 10 devices – the Nokia 2.1, reports ITREALMS.
This is coming as key competitors have fewer than a third of their sub-US$200 smartphones updated to the latest Android version, thus HMD Global is proud to add another value smartphone to its line-up of Android 10 devices, the Nokia 2.1. 

Latest data from Counterpoint Research, over 90 per cent of Nokia devices in the price tier get updated to the latest and most secure operating system.

HMD Global, which leads among the top Android brands with the regularity of its software and security updates, has now updated 18 Nokia smartphones to Android 10 within a year of its release. That confirms the business belief that a phone should be built on the basis of security, reliability and dependability from the moment it is devised - a commitment that it has been investing heavily in over the last few months.

With the latest data showing that 94% of the portfolio of Nokia phones gets updated to the latest Android version within a year of release, HMD Global is the fastest manufacturer to reach that level of updates. The company offers up to two years of free operating system (OS) upgrades which include new features to optimise the overall experience and improve the security of the device.

Olamide Amosu, Head of Marketing, West Africa at HMD Global, said: “Maintaining optimal software performance is critical to the long-term health of a smartphone which is why we are investing in this part of the process. Consumers deserve to have a secure and up-to-date Android experience, with no bloatware for added peace of mind. Recent research found that pre-loaded applications in handsets with custom Android skins can create flaws and gaps that can be taken advantage of for malicious intent – something that we want to ensure against.”

As part of its long-lasting commitment to security, earlier this year, the company announced that the acquisition of Valona Labs and was the launch of a brand-new Centre of Excellence in Tampere, Finland.

Bringing together HMD Global’s commitment to delivering secure, reliable and dependable mobile experiences and Valona Labs’ expertise in mobile, enterprise and cybersecurity software, the move further built upon the company’s reputation as a global leader in smartphone software updates and security. The Centre of Excellence specialises in researching and developing new ways of delivering technology. This includes investigating remote device locking, enterprise mobility management, mobile device software security, secure network communication and black box testing.
