The Coronavirus has now spread to quite a large number of countries around the world. In fact, because of the virus, many events got canceled. The cancellation of the MWC 2020 earlier this year got many people talking. The spread of the virus has also caused some factories to close down or produce at a reduced capacity.
However, the Coronavirus outbreak is not only affecting hardware. Apparently, it now also affects software efforts in the tech industry. As a result of the spread of the virus, Nokia is revising its Android 10 update schedule.
The Android 10 update hit Pixel phones back in August 2019. Shortly after that, Nokia released a timeline of the release of the update to its various devices. Already, devices such as the Nokia 6.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, and Nokia 7 Plus have gotten the update. Others include the Nokia 7.1, Nokia 8.1, and Nokia 9 PureView. However, other devices may be delayed.
As with other brands, Nokia is taking precautions to curb the spread of the Coronavirus. The precautions affect Nokia’s staff and can definitely impact productivity. Because of this, the update for some devices has been shifted by some months.
Juho Sarvikas, the CPO for Nokia at HMD Global, took to Twitter to say that Nokia still hopes to be the “fastest brand update” for Android 10.
Here is the revised Android 10 update schedule for Nokia devices.
