Original story (published on May 18) follows:
Nokia had plans for updating the Nokia 5.1 Plus smartphone in Q1 2020. Well, that obviously did not happen, thanks to the COVID-19 scenario the world is currently facing.
This gotten Nokia to bring about some changes in its plans for updating its Android 10 roadmap, where the company pushed the Android 10 update scheduled date of the Nokia 5.1 Plus to somewhere in Q2 of 2020.
A while back, it was reported that the company will push the Android 10 update for the device, once they are done fixing a nagging WiFi issue. Amidst, this the company rolled out the Android 10 update for the Nokia 3.1 Plus, while users were waiting for the update on their Nokia 5.1 Plus.
Well, a lot has surfaced regarding the Android 10 update for the device. A video came out showing the first glimpse of Android 10 on the Nokia 5.1 Plus, then the Android 10 internal beta build was leaked for the phone alongside Nokia 8 Sirocco, which has already been upgraded to Android 10.
Cut to now, a piece of new information might get the Android 10 hopefuls on the Nokia 5.1 Plus excited, because a tweet by the Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, Juho Sarvikas, has confirmed that the OS update for the phone will be rolled out this week.
Responding to a Twitter post claiming that Nokia 5.1 Plus will get the Android 10 update this week, Juho Sarvikas commented:
Yes, that’s the plan
Besides, this is also in line with one of our earlier post where we have reported that the update will indeed arrive in May. And by the looks of it, it is confirmed that the update will be pushed somewhere around May 20, as Nokia has a habit of releasing major updates in the middle of the week.
As far as Android 10 updates on other Nokia devices is concerned, as per our tracker, only five devices, namely, Nokia 5.1, 5.1 Plus, Nokia 3.1, 2.1 and Nokia 1 are waiting for the Android 10 update, which we guess will soon be ticked off from the list keeping in mind the pace at which Nokia is pushing the Android 10 update.
We will keep you updated once the Android 10 update starts rolling out for the smartphone.
