The first Nokia smartphones could receive Android P as early as August
HDM Global is one of the few handset makers that confirmed all its current Nokia smartphones will be updated to Android P once Google releases the new version of the OS. Unfortunately, since the Mountain View company hasn't yet announced when exactly Android P will be released, there's no to tell when the Nokia phone will get the update.

However, Google did mention that Android P will be launched sometime in Q3 2018, which means that as we head into the month of July the major Android OS update could hit Pixel, and hopefully Nokia, devices anytime.

If you happen to own a Nokia smartphone, chances are that you'll be among the first to receive the Android P update according to a recent report. An email exchange between a Nokia smartphone user and Nokia Mobile Care reveals some interesting details about HMD Global's software update plans.

Although Android P Developer Preview is only available for a single smartphone released by HMD – the Nokia 7 plus, the Finnish company plans to release the final version to all its handset starting August. This sounds too good to be true, even though the timeline fits with Google's ETA for the Android P release.

It wouldn't be the first time that a company's support rep offers wrong information about a highly-anticipated update, so we definitely suggest our readers to take the report with a grain of salt.
