Here at the home of Nokia phones, we’re committed to ensuring our fans have peace of mind by offering them the most up-to-date and secure Android experience on their Nokia smartphones. In February 2017, we introduced the new era of Nokia smartphones with our unique promise of pure, secure and up-to-date Android. In our first year, we brought to you Nokia 8, Nokia 6, Nokia 5, Nokia 3 and Nokia 2* and made a commitment to you that your Nokia smartphones would stay fresh and secure for longer with our promise of two major OS updates and two years of regular security updates.
And here we are, two years on, delighted to tell you that we’re surpassing that pledge. As the two-year period draws to a close for these smartphones, we remain committed to delivering the best and most secure experiences. So, what does it mean? Once we reach 2 years from the time last market launched these smartphones (and following Operator and regional approvals), the Nokia 8, Nokia 6**, Nokia 5 and the Nokia 3 will be able to receive quarterly security patch updates right through to the end of the 3rd year. To ensure you’ll be up to date, these quarterly releases will include all patches from the previous months.
We aim to be completely transparent when it comes to updates and software. That’s why we want to ensure that Nokia smartphone fans know when their model will no longer receive the security updates they’ve been used to. This will apply to the full Nokia smartphone family – so everyone can benefit from a smartphone that stays secure for longer. After two years of monthly updates, the Nokia 3 will be the first model to start receiving updates quarterly updates from September 2019 until September 2020.
Quarterly security update switch dates:
*For users of Nokia 2, the security patch support will conclude in November 2019**For users of Nokia 6 Amazon (USA and India), the security patch support will conclude in October 2019
