Original story (published on April 22) follows:

Since Nokia’s comeback to the mobile industry under HMD Global, the company has been doing something right. Of course, being part of the Android One Program definitely helps, but still, the regularity of updates is worth appreciating.

Nokia was one of the first companies – after the official release by Google – to come out with an Android 10 roadmap, a detailed plan of how the company intends to update its eligible devices.

However, things didn’t go as planned due to due to COVID-19. The OEM then re-released an updated roadmap, to compensate for setbacks the company experienced in the development of Android 10.

As per the updated roadmap, the Nokia 2.3 was expected to get updated to Android 10 within the second quarter of 2020, while the 2.2 was updated back in Q1.

Surprisingly, the Android 10 internal beta leaked for Nokia 5.1 Plus & Nokia 8 Sirocco. Soon after the OEM pushed the stable update for Nokia 8 Siroccoo moving the spotlight to Nokia 5.1 Plus.
