First reported by Android Authority, the news comes from Neil Broadley, Nokia’s global marketing manager who added that latest version of Android will come to the entire Nokia smartphone range released until now.
The update isn’t a surprise given that Nokia has chosen to partner with Google’s Android One program, one that ensures timely updates along with security patches.
