Nokia Mobile China Weibo account formed a group with "Nokia fans".

I joined as well, and Nokia Mobile China (as Administrator) removed me silently just now😂

Considered what I did to their phones before, this is expected. But I'm worried, aren't they going to change their mind regarding to community developers? And are they going to stick in the feature phones in Chinese market?


To those who don't know, following Nokia phones sold in Chinese market already stopped update.

  • Nokia 6 - Android 9 February 2019 (D1C-612H-0-00CN-B04)
  • Nokia 7 - Android 9 July 2019 (C1N-347I-0-00CN-B02)
  • Nokia 6 2nd Generation (Nokia 6.1) - Android 9 July 2019 (PL2-347I-0-00CN-B02)
  • Nokia 8 Sirocco - Android 9 September 2019 (A1N-414G-0-00CN-B01)
  • Nokia 7 Plus - Android 9 July 2019 (B2N-347I-0-00CN-B02)
  • Nokia X6 (Nokia 6.1 Plus) - Android 9 July 2019 (DRG-347I-0-00CN-B01)
  • Nokia X5 (Nokia 5.1 Plus) - Android 9 May 2019 (PDA-215C-0-00CN-B01)
  • Nokia 3.1 Plus - Android 9 June 2019 (ROO-223D-0-00CN-B02)
  • Nokia X7 (Nokia 8.1) - Android 9 May 2019 (PNX-259G-0-00CN-B03)
  • Nokia 9 PureView - Android 9 May 2019 (AOP-427C-0-00CN-B03)
  • Nokia X71 - Android 9 May 2019 (TAS-118J-0-00CN-B04)

Now they said they're going to release Nokia 8.3 5G in Chinese market and stressed they will use "Full powered Snapdragon 765G" many times😂 I don't think they will still success, who knows.

    Oh, and to owners of these phones imported from China (possibly including Chinese users like me).

    Except Nokia 7, all of these phones can be converted to Global firmware.

    And except Nokia 6, 7 and X71, all these phones above can be updated to Android 10 Global release, but don't try to install Android 10 Global update yourself (due to SKUID related stuff and of course, average Chinese users don't have access to Google services).

    Does changing chinese ROM to global ROM, enable all the LTE bands and Carrier Aggregation combos that the global model is supporting?

    No. The frequency bands capability is still same as Chinese ROM.

    Especially CDMA frequencies - China Telecom is the only CDMA based carrier in China.


    At least you can properly receive further update after converted.

    I found many Chinese customers are asking me for Global conversion as they said Chinese localization team already abandoned them.
