HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, fulfilled its promise to a pure, smart, secure and up-to-date Android experience by becoming the first global partner to have a full suite of devices selected into the Android One programme by Google.
What this means to users is that phones running on the Android One platform will be the first to receive updates, security patches and an overall optimised experience for Google run apps like Chrome. This also means that users will have a seamless experience across the range of devices running Android One, only enhanced by the quality of the hardware encased in each phone model.
Gayan Wijethilaka, Sri Lanka Head of Marketing of HMD said “the new series of Nokia smartphones operating on the Android One platform are much faster and offer longer battery life, which has become a critical factor for customers in choosing a smartphone. Many today carry a battery pack, often times larger than the phone unit itself to ensure they remain contactable throughout the day. Now, users can find the perfect device to fit their needs and know they're getting a high-quality hardware and software experience that’s smart, secure, and simply amazing.”
Two new Nokia smartphones which were launched in Sri Lanka – Nokia 7 Plus and the new Nokia 6 – joined the Android One family, offering a high quality software experience designed by Google. Each phone will stay fresh over time with the latest AI powered innovations to the highest grade of security from Google. With a pure Android installation, Nokia smartphones come with no unnecessary UI changes or hidden processes that would eat up battery life or slow them down so users can enjoy their new phone for longer. Each of the new phones comes with a limited number of pre-installed apps so that users will get more storage space, as well as the latest innovations that help you stay ahead of the game every day.
By shipping with Android Oreo™ out of the box, users will be able to enjoy the latest features, including Picture-in-Picture for multitasking, Android Instant Apps to discover and run apps with minimal friction, 60 fantastic new emojis and battery-maximising features like limiting background app use.
