[Update: Aug. 21] Android 11 update status tracker for Nokia 1.3, Nokia 4.2, Nokia 2.4, Nokia 2.3, & Nokia 3.4 : Here's what we know

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on January 05, 2021) follows:

Nokia’s official Android 11 roadmap outlines that Nokia 1.3, Nokia 2.3, Nokia 2.4, Nokia 3.4, and Nokia 4.2 are expected to get the latest OS update in the first quarter of 2021.

It must be noted that the likes of Nokia 2.2, Nokia 5.3, Nokia 8.1, and Nokia 8.3 5G were expected to get the latest OS update from Q4 2020 but that did not transpire.

Now, it seems that the first quarter of 2021 is crucial for Nokia as a bunch of devices are in line to get the Android 11 update during the said period.

This means that the Nokia 1.3, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 3.4, 4.2, 5.3, 8.1, and 8.3 5G might receive the Android 11 update in the first quarter of 2021.

However, this is still based on our speculation and the info from the official Android 11 update roadmap shared by the OEM.

So far, only Nokia 5.3, Nokia 8.3 5G, and Nokia 8.1 have been spotted running the Android 11 update on Geekbench.

This might mean that the OEM might release the latest OS update for the aforementioned devices in the near future.

Nevertheless, Nokia has been overly quiet on the matter so it is still unclear how the OEM plans to proceed with the Android 11 update rollout for its eligible devices.

While Android 11 is available for several Nokia devices in the form of custom ROMs, not everyone is familiar with modding.

This is simply because general users usually wait for an official build for their device as those are far more stable than early custom builds based on the latest OS update.

Also, the vanilla Android experience is what makes the Android One-based Nokia devices user friendly as it is easier to use.
