Nokia is leaking the way with its Android updates when compared to other smartphone manufacturers, according to a recent report, nearly 96% of Nokia’s handsets sold from Q3 2018 are already on Android 9.0 Pie.
The news comes in a report from Counterpoint Research, who have revealed that Samsung’s handsets released in the same period have 89% updated to Android 9 and Xiaomi are on 84%.
Nearly 96% of Nokia smartphones, sold cumulatively since Q3 2018, are already running on Android Pie or have had an Android Pie update issued to them, making it the fastest brand to reach this level. This is according to the findings of Counterpoint Research’s latest whitepaper titled Software and Security Updates: The Missing Link for Smartphones.
Highlighting the whitepaper findings, Research Director, Peter Richardson, noted, “Operating system and security updates are an aspect of Android smartphones that get relatively little attention. In our experience researching the industry, we have seen few brands focusing on this. And perhaps because manufacturers are not talking about it, consumer awareness is also low. It doesn’t appear among the ten features consumers say they care about most, in our research.”
