HMD Extends Android Security Patch Support to older Nokia Smartphones

This does not mean that these smartphones will get the Android Q update because the support could be the regular monthly updates. These quarterly security updates will include all patches from the prior three months.

I know that security updates are not so interesting, but somehow I get excited every time I see it on the phone.

HMD Global is very specific about its support for smartphones. These devices have been receiving security updates for nearly 2 years now and HMD is extending that support by another year. The Amazon version of the Nokia 6 in the US and India will lose support for security updates after October 2019. Beginning with the Nokia 3 in September the Nokias 5, 6 and 8 will receive these ongoing quarterly updates from October. Don't expect monthly security patches though, as these phones will receive quarterly patches instead. Meanwhile, the Nokia 6 Amazon (U.S. and India variants) will be supported until October 2019. If you have the Nokia 2, sadly this won't be supported for an extra year and its security patch support will conclude in November 2019.

Recall that the Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8 were released in 2017 and as per HMD Global standard, they are supposed to stop getting updates by 2019.
