Notably, Nokia 2.1 and Nokia 1 phones that were launched with Android 8.1 (Oreo) Go Edition are already updated to Pie in February and June, respectively. This means Android 10 would be their second major upgrade. HMD Global must be appreciated for continuing its impressive track record in pushing out timely software updates to its dated phones as well.

The Android 10 (Go edition) is claimed to be reliable, faster, and more secure. Google says the app launch speed is 10 percent faster compared to previous Go edition operating systems. It also adopts a new Adiantum encryption that is dedicated for low-end phones and doesn’t impact the performance. The Mountain View giant says that over 500 smartphone manufacturers have launched more than 1,600 Android (Go edition) devices in around 180+ countries in the last 18 months.
