While some are more interested in the current Nokia smartphones or the upcoming ones, most of the owners of the last-gen Nokia phones are on the lookout for the Android 11 upgrade. And one such device is the Nokia 1 Plus, which is supposed to get its final OS upgrade in the form of Android 11 Go in this quarter.
The Nokia 1 series smartphone from 2019 was already spotted running Android 11 Go on Geekbench about two months ago. Now, Vodafone Australia has added the device to its “Software Update Weekly Wrap” page with the status “Testing in progress” for the Android 11 feature update. Nokia 1 Plus was one of the four Nokia phones by HMD Global that Vodafone offered by bundling its SIM card in Australia. The telecom operator seems to have begun the testing around May 14.
It hints that Nokia Mobile is close to announcing the global rollout of the update and is in the last stages of testing it. However, if Vodafone Australia finds the update not complying with its requirements, it will send the update back to the manufacturer. And the carrier will start the testing all over again when it receives the revised update from the manufacturer.
It is the reason why some carriers or even some countries are excluded from the update wave list. That will not stop Nokia Mobile from releasing the update to the other regions/markets and carriers, where it has the necessary approvals. Nokia Mobile has a month to take care of everything and announce the Android 11 Go for Nokia 1 Plus within the stipulated time.
Apart from that, Nokia Mobile still has at least five more smartphones which it needs to upgrade to Android 11 within the current quarter or by June. At the moment, it looks like a pretty huge task for the company, especially since no new phone has received Android 11 for over a month after Nokia 2.4 started receiving it on April 26.
Anyways, below is the status of the Nokia smartphones that are in the queue for Android 11:
Expected within June:-
Expected before Q4 starts:-
- Nokia 6.2, Nokia 7.2, and Nokia 9 PureView.
