A Sneak Peek At Nokias History

Nokia mobile phones, headquartered at Espoo, Finland was founded and designed by HMD Global, a company. The company was founded on 12th May 1865. HMD Global, headed by Sari Baldauf, designs and markets Nokia mobiles to date. Though, in 2014, they sold Nokia to Microsoft but eventually bought the company back in 2016.

Nokia mistakenly posted Android 11 update charts on Twitter

HMD is expected to roll out the Android 11 updates soon since Nokia 5.1 is the last Nokia device to receive an Android 10 update. Nokia, by mistake, posted the Android 11 update charts on 8th September 2020 but was later deleted. The charts had many smartphones missing. We can expect more smartphones will be enlisted for the Android 11 update. Till then, lets wait for the official announcement.
