In a dedicated event at MWC 2018, HMD Global showcased several new smartphones, and the Finnish company has also announced that almost every Nokia smartphone will be joining the Android One program. In case you don’t know, Android One is a stock version of the operating system which is supported directly by Google with faster updates and more software support in the long-term.
Android One smartphones come with few pre-installed apps to save storage and provide maximum security, and its user interface does not have any form of customization to provide a clean and pure user experience. All Android One devices, including almost every HMD smartphone, receive security updates for three years after the launch, and the updates usually roll out well before other smartphones.
The smartphones which have officially joined the Android One program are Nokia 3, 5, 6, 6 (2018), 7, 7 Plus, 8 and 8 Sirocco. This means that besides the feature phones Nokia 3310 and the new 8110, the only phones which will not be included in the program are the Nokia 1 and 2. The owners of the Nokia 1 will not mind as it is already part of the Android Go program, a light version of the operating system for devices with very low-end specs.
