Nokia has reportedly outlined a launch plan that upgrades its smartphones to the stable Android 13, including a short list of the first wave of respective devices. Some have pre-existing trials for major new software upgrades; However, they all do have a few things in common, including a relatively recent release date and a tendency to use them for work.

Nokia has been on the list of OEMs compatible with the Android 13 beta since its announcement; However, it has not unveiled an upgrade based on the stable OS since its release. Now, however, the HMD Global brand has confirmed that at least some of its new devices will see the update soon.

Some, like the X20, are fairly obvious candidates. The full list is as follows:

They’re all fairly new (though not the latest) devices, and they all support 5G. However (with the exception of the XR20), none cost more than $300 at launch. They are or should be on Android 12 right now, like all other devices to upgrade to its second-wave successor, according to Nokia.

They’re also all in the Android Enterprise Recommended Program, which might help explain why they’re number one for your upcoming OTA install. Then again, Nokia has yet to say exactly when any of the five smartphones should start the upgrade.
