Continuing on its software update spree, HMD Global, makers of Nokia phones has announced that a new phone has joined the list of older Nokia phones receiving the Android 10 update. Latest to join the bandwagon is the Nokia 1 Plus which has now begun to receive Android 10 (Go Edition).

When the flagship handset Nokia 9 PureView longs for an upgrade to the newest OS, Juho Sarvikas Chief Product Officer, HMD Global took to Twitter to announce that Android 10 (Go edition) is now rolling out for Nokia 1 Plus smartphone beginning April 29, which he said would make the Nokia 1 Plus ‘feel brand new all over again.’ The lightweight operating system will bring a host of new features to the phone, which will include improved speed and security.

These countries include Bahrain, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, the UAE, and Yemen.
