Nearly two years ago, I reviewed the $200 Nokia 5.3, which was promised two years of Android OS upgrades and three years of security updates. How has HMD Global, the company licensing the Nokia brand, fared? It only just deployed Android 12 to that device, which is a year-old version of Google’s operating system.
That’s a big delay, but at least that budget phone will get six more months of security updates before its support officially ends. Unfortunately, things have gotten worse. Now I have the new $270 Nokia G400 5G, which will only get two years of security updates
