Nokia 1 now receiving Android 10 Go update

Nokia Mobile has just updated its first-ever Android Go smartphone - the Nokia 1 to Android 10. Nokia 1 is an entry-level Nokia smartphone which was released back in 2018 and was running on Android Oreo at the time of launch. So, if you have a Nokia 1 then chances are that the update is already waiting for you to tap that download button.

Android Go smartphones come with a promise of receiving two major updates and three years of security patches and HMD Global has once again proven that they do not leave even their budget smartphones unattended when it comes to updating to latest Android versions and providing regular security patches.

Android 10 for Nokia 1 is 859 MB in size and comes with June 2020 Android Security patch. On the new features side of things, it brings the new system-wide Dark Mode and the new privacy and location control introduced with Android 10. The Android 10 Go is a lighter version of Android with limited features and sadly does not include the new gesture navigation. So, Nokia 1 misses out on the new gesture navigation.

For the smooth rollout, the Android 10 Go update for Nokia 1 is being rolled out in waves and 1st wave includes a total of 13 approved markets where the update will be rolled out. Out of these 13 approved markets, 10% will receive the update today, 50% will get it by 10th July and on 12th July, 100% of these approved markets will have received the update. The list of 13 approved markets is below: 

Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam.
