There is finally some good news for Nokia mobile phone users. A new report claimed that Nokia Mobile has identified the smartphone models that will be eligible for the Android 13 software update. The Nokia XR20 5G is likely to be the first Nokia phone to get Android 13, of which the beta version is already available. There will be four more phones that will receive Android 13, Nokia Mobile has reportedly confirmed. Also Read – Nokia XR20 launched in India at Rs 46,999: It’s the most powerful Nokia phone ever
But amidst the good news, there is an unpleasant announcement for some users. According to Chinese news site IT Home, Nokia Mobile has confirmed that it has finished the Android 12 migration, which means that phones that have not yet received Android 12 will not get it in the future. This is a bit frustrating for some users who were waiting for the Android 12 update. Although previously Nokia Mobile had listed all eligible phones.

Nokia mobile phones eligible for Android 13 update:

According to the report, these five Nokia phones meet the recommended requirements of Android Enterprise. These are business-oriented requirements, such as mass deployment with touchless enrollment, physical availability of sufficient modules, and rapid Android security updates, that Google requires that a phone meet to be sold as an enterprise device.

There are other phones than those listed by Nokia Mobile, such as the C31, G60 5G, and X30 5G that were launched in September earlier this year at IFA Berlin. But the reason they aren’t listed is because they don’t sell in China. The list of eligible smartphones released by Nokia Mobile is for the Chinese market, so we will have to wait for an announcement regarding global variants of Nokia phones.
Nokia Mobile’s biggest selling point has been the faster and timely rollout of software for its phones. This included both security updates and new Android versions. This possibility made Nokia Mobile stand out in the sea of brands that were more optimistic about the specifications of the phone. However, over the past few months, HMD Global, host of the Nokia Mobile brand, has fallen far behind. The rollout of Android 12 took longer than initially planned.
Android 13 has yet to start rolling out, while, on the other hand, most of the brands like Realme, OnePlus, and Oppo have pushed Android 13-based custom skins to most of their phones. This is despite the fact that Nokia Mobile offers a semi-stock Android software experience on its phones, compared to the highly customizable skins on competing phones.
