HMD Global ends the year on a high note: 2 Nokia smartphones are getting the Android 13 update. The Finnish company confirmed today that both the Nokia XR20 and Nokia G50 will be eligible for the Android 13 upgrade.
These are likely the last Nokia-branded phones to receive an Android 13 update this year, but as 2023 rolls out, Android 13 should continue to roll out to other devices.street NokiaMob reports that the Nokia XR Android 13 update weighs 2.3GB, which is about the same as the G50’s (2.26GB).
“We are excited to announce that customers will begin to experience Android 13 on their Nokia smartphones. We understand that people want to use their mobile phones longer. Hardware durability isn’t the only standard for Nokia phones. Longevity is the cornerstone of the new Nokia smartphone lineup, bringing security, durability and innovation to customers across all price points in the smartphone market.Lars Silberbauer, Chief Marketing Officer, HMD Global, said: The Nokia G50 has been approved in some markets, but the list of countries where it is currently available has not been published. On the bright side, if you own one of the two phones and don’t get the update by the end of the year, it’s almost guaranteed to come out in Q1 2023.
As far as changes go, this update comes with some official patch notes revealing additional improvements available in Android 13.
- Themed app icons for some apps
- Photo picker for sharing videos and photos
- Notification authority
- New media controls
Furthermore, both The Nokia XR20 and Nokia G50 have the November 2022 security patches. I think we can all agree that being a month behind Google’s latest security patch is more than acceptable, especially considering he’s talking about two entry-level smartphones. increase.
