With what resources is HMD Global able to support this many models? 

Does the Android One program have penalties if a partner misses security updates or OS updates?

  • Yeah, I forgot they also had those non-Android phones that need support.

    And soon there will be Nokia 9, Nokia 8.1, Nokia 7.1 Plus and more. I don't see this ending well in the long run. Not enough engineers to support all these devices for three years.
