HMD Global has already announced what: Nokia phones will get Android 12 updates and timetables for each of them. For those who own one of the cheapest Nokia smartphones on the market, the Nokia 2.4, this is indeed a very happy day.
While HMD has not yet confirmed the information, there are reports that the global version of Nokia 2.4 will be getting Android 12 in different parts of the world. Nokia mafia has been tipped off about the availability of the Nokia 2.4 Android 12 update in France but we learned that it is also available in Pakistan through the official Nokia forum†
This is a pretty sizable update that weighs in at 1.75 GB and includes the April 2022 security patch, which is pretty good even though we’re already halfway through May. We expect the rollout of the update to expand to more territories, although it’s very possible that it’s now available in even more countries.
Nokia 2.4 was introduced two years ago and usually retails for around $150 in the US. The entry-level phone is unlikely to get another major update like Android 13, but that’s up to HMD to clarify after Google releases the next version of its operating system.
