- HMD has started rolling out Android 11 to the Nokia 2.4.
- On Nokia 2.4, Android 11 brings chat bubbles and tighter privacy controls.
- Nokia 5.3 users, on the other hand, are also waiting for the update.
The Nokia 2.4 is the most recent device to get the Android 11 update. After the update, the two-month-old Nokia phone for the masses will have more functionality, including tougher privacy and security control. However, while HMD has started rolling out Android 11 to the Nokia 2.4, the Nokia 5.3 has yet to receive the update. The Nokia 5.3 will receive Android 11 between Q4 2020 and Q1 2021, while the Nokia 2.4 update will be delayed slightly.
Nokia Mobile announced that the Android 11 update “has landed for the Nokia2dot4” on Twitter. HMD had planned to release Android 11 for the Nokia 2.4 in the first quarter of 2021, but the update came a little late. But although this is good news for Nokia 2.4 users, it is another day of wait for the Nokia 5.3 users who have been awaiting the Android 11 update since last year. Nokia 5.3 was expected to get an update between the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of this year but to no avail.
In any case, Nokia 2.4 users should rejoice and applaud HMD for the pace at which it releases new updates to its phones. The Nokia 2.4 receives the Android 11 update, which adds a slew of new features. In Android 11, you can allow chat bubbles for all messaging apps, just like you can on Messenger. A new power button menu will appear, displaying connected devices as well as security camera controls, among other items. With Android 11, app permissions will be more stringent, as you will be able to grant an app access to your location on a one-time basis. The latest update also improves Google Assistant.
Seven Nokia smartphones, including the Nokia 2.4, have received the Android 11 update so far. According to HMD’s Android 11 launch roadmap from last year, the Nokia 5.3, Nokia 1.3, Nokia 3.4, Nokia 7.2, Nokia 6.2, Nokia 1 Plus, and Nokia 9 PureView are among the remaining devices. You also have the Nokia 5.4 and Nokia 1.4, which were launched earlier this year by the company. Overall, HMD still has a few phones that need to be updated to Android 11.
Meanwhile, the Nokia X20, Nokia G20, and Nokia C20 are among the latest Nokia phones to ship with Android 11 out of the box. These new phones are a minor deviation from HMD’s previous offerings. So, although the name has changed, the blend of requirements has remained largely unchanged. The Nokia X20 is HMD’s top-of-the-line unit, with a Snapdragon 480 processor. The phone costs about Rs 31,000, while the Oppo A74 5G, India’s newest Snapdragon 480-powered phone, costs less than Rs 18,000. So, while the price-to-specs ratio for Nokia phones remains unbalanced, HMD is attempting to change the game, and we hope it succeeds.
