The Global HMD announced yesterday that Nokia PureView 9 will not receive the long-awaited update Android 11, which was expected. This device was made available as part of the Android One program. As a result, it was expected to receive two Android updates as well as three years of security patches.
Unfortunately, the company has only been able to provide a single Android update ( Android 10 ) since the device’s launch in late 2019, which was shortly after the device’s launch. The phone was initially scheduled to receive the Android 11 update in Q2 2021. However, it was later pushed back to Q3 2021 and never materialized.
Interestingly, HMD Global chose to announce the cancellation of the update on the company’s 5th anniversary. The main reason for the elimination of the update, according to the company, is the “incompatibility between the camera and the software”.
Remember that the Nokia 9 PureView has a Penta camera configuration developed by Light, in case you have forgotten that. As a result of Light’s exit from the smartphone industry, HMD Global will not be able to optimize the camera for a newer version of Android.
In any case, security updates will continue to be provided for the smartphone, and users can take advantage of a 50% discount on the Nokia XR20 to get Android 11.
