Despite Nokia being a bit slow when it comes to updating its phones at times, it has kept its promise to deliver two full years of major Android updates. The Nokia 9 PureView, however, is going to be an exception to the rule according to the company’s official Polish website.
Nokia outlines the camera experience and its features to be the main reason for the decision. It says that the device’s camera software and features are not compatible with Android 11 and therefore, the core appeal of the phone would be lost after updating. After all, Nokia 9 PureView’s innovative camera is the centerpiece feature.
For users wanting to upgrade to Android 11, HMD Global is offering a 50% discount for Nokia 9 PureView owners on phones that are running Android 11. Although this seems like a regional announcement, it may soon become global.
