HMD Global has started the rollout of the stable Android 12 upgrade to the Nokia X20. HMD started beta testing Android 12 for Nokia X20 in September and then closed the Beta program at the end of October. Now, in the mid of December, the Nokia X20 users across the globe are all set to get the taste of Android 12.
Nokia X20 is the first Nokia smartphone to receive the Android 12 upgrade. The Snapdragon 480 powered smartphone is HMD’s mid-range product to the world. Given that HMD Global uses the same chipset on a number of Nokia smartphones, we can expect the Android 12 upgrade to be released to more smartphones shortly. These include the similar-looking Nokia X10, Nokia XR20, and Nokia G50.
