HMD teases faster than expected Android 11 rollout for the next batch of Nokia phones
Back in September last year, Nokia shared its update roadmap for Android 11 for most of its phones. Today the company's CPO Juho Sarvikas teased on Twitter that Android 11 is coming sooner than expected.
Counterpoint Research recognized us for fastest portfolio wide deployment of Android 9 & 10. Now we do a hat trick with Android 11 committing to latest Android experience even to our most affordable global handsets.— Juho Sarvikas (@sarvikas) February 2, 2021

That's at least what we could gather from the post. The Nokia 8.3 5G's update has already started so we suspect that the rest of the portfolio will start receiving the update soon too. A while back, Counterpoint Research said that HMD was fast to update its portfolio to Android 9 and 10 and while it's not quite leading the Android 11 rollout it wants to catch up.
To give you a bit of perspective here's the official update roadmap.

The 5.4 is the forgotten child of the family. Bought 9ne to be in the leading edge now feel like I would be better off with a pen, paper and stamps.
