Owners of Nokia 9 PureView, put your heart in peace: despite the promises, the smartphone will never be updated to Android 11. Promises, yes, because it was HMD itself that guaranteed the second major update of the device – Android 10 arrived in December two years ago – and now officially announces that updates will be limited to the release of security patches.
The Penta-chamber dates back to February 2019, too late in time according to the Finnish company which, admits, has found “incompatibility between the camera and software which would have led to a compromised experience“. Nokia and the HMD parent company recognize the inconvenience this program change may have generated among users by offering them in exchange a 50% discount on the purchase of a Nokia XR20 or another smartphone “depending on regional availability“.
Nokia requires the insertion of the following data in the form made available on the official website (link in SOURCE):
- email address
- IMEI number of the Nokia 9 PureView
You will then receive an email with instructions on how to redeem the discount. The offer is valid until March 31, 2022.
And you, would you replace Nokia 9 PureView with the tough XR20 to have Android 11 onboard?
If you are interested in making the leap from Android 10 to the next version, an advantageous option could therefore be to take advantage of the 50% discount offered by Nokia for the purchase of XR20. Let’s briefly recall the main technical characteristics:
- display: IPS 6.67 “FHD +
