Will this phone get Android 9.0 P and Android 10.0 Q 2018/2019 updates

Will this phone get two major updates like last Nokia 6, Android 9.0 P and Android 10.0 Q yes I know it will probably be Q.

Nokia phones running android will be likely to have two year OS updates and three year security updates, take into account that from now 2018 nokia hmd will be adopting Android One program which make easier to address that kind of questions more easily. In 2016-2017 HMD said their android phones will be running up to date, fast, secure, up to date, clean UI but never said for how long (it is obvious android phones will not be able to run the latest OS from google due to technical reasons and market manufactures do need to sell upgrading them forever does not make sense from a profit point of view)

I believe it could go beyond that due to Project Treble. However, this will be heavily dependent on Qualcomm.

I can't even imagine it will even get P in time they will give you android P in June next year then 18 months does so no eligibility for android 10.0..going forward don't buy over priced android one devices just save your money buy a pixel device if u really want promised updstes,,,android one devices are the worst at upgrade which makes me wonder what developers for them keep doing it's essentially vanilla android they just out the Nokia camera and upload the sofware for the firmware any other thing is just ,,stock android what's sooo hard to just tweek the updates ??
Android one updates for these Nokias will come directly from Google to the device. Sure, a cheap "Android one" device from a few years ago may have been underwhelming. The Nokia 6.1 however is going to receive Android 9.0 "P" shortly after release. The Nokia 6.1 at $380 NZD it's roughly $700 less than a Google pixel which also gets updated directly from Google. The Nexus 6 I replaced with the Nokia 6.1 is virtually identical to navigate. The Samsung A8 I brought a couple of months earlier for the other half has an unnecessary Samsung skin over Android and it's still yet to receive Android Oreo almost a year after release. The A8 is a very good phone with water resistance and better screen, but it should be as it's a lot more expensive than the Nokia 6.1 and if the Nokia 6.1 had arrived in time then the Samsung A8 simply would not have been purchased. With Nokia and Samsung both along with Sony delivering the majority of the not Chinese controlled Androids I'm more than happy to buy what is essentially a Pixel phone for a lot less than a Pixel, albeit with slightly inferior camera and processor. Android "Go" phones and phones dependent on Samsung, etc to update are now the phones to avoid, those phones will receive less certain updates. I'd quite happily consider an Android one phone from Nokia, Sony or Samsung and I'm hoping it comes to tablets. It's certainly not AOSP Android!
