The schedule suggests the Nokia 2.2, 5.3, 8.1, and 8.3 5G will get the Android 11 update first, in the fourth quarter of 2020. Most of the eligible phones would get their upgrades in the first quarter of 2021, including the Nokia 1.3, 2.3, 2.4, 3.2, 3.4, 4.2, 6.2, and 7.2. That’s relatively late, but not unheard of.

However, you’ll have to be particularly patient with two stand-out phones. According to the news, the no-frills Nokia 1 Plus and the camera-centric Nokia 9 Pureview won’t get their upgrades until the second quarter of 2021 — half a year after Android 11 first reached devices. This wouldn’t be completely surprising given the comparative age of the devices but might be frustrating when Google’s latest OS will have been on Pixel phones for several months by that point.

Some phones like Nokia 7 Plus are out of the game, but those devices will still be receiving security patches in 2021.
