Android 13 may now be available for two HMD Global’s Nokia phones – more than two months after the company started testing the new Android version. A new report has suggested that the Nokia XR20 and Nokia G50 are now receiving the Android 13 update, bringing the latest security patch along with new features and system enhancements.
According to NokiaMob, HMD Global has started rolling out the Android 1 update for the Nokia XR20 and Nokia G50 in some European countries. While the company hasn’t officially said anything about the rollout, the Android 13 update will likely be available to users in other regions.
Along with the new Android version, the latest update for the Nokia XR20 and Nokia G50 also brings new features, such as themed app icons for some apps — similar to what you see on Google Pixel phones — and a new feature when sharing photos or videos. Photo picker. While these features are said to be available in select markets, I don’t see why HMD Global would deprive Nokia XR20 and Nokia G50 users of them.
Talking about the features of Android 13, the Nokia XR20 and Nokia G50 will now see new notification permissions, better media controls, animations in the playback bar and other features. The privacy and security of the device will also improve with the new Android 13 update. Since HMD doesn’t include third-party apps and keeps its Android updates close to stock, you won’t find any bloatware in the software after updating your device.
To update your Nokia XR20 or Nokia G50, go to Software update in your phone’s Settings and then download and install a new update if it’s available in your region.
HMD Global first rolled out the Android 13 update for the Nokia X20 5G and Nokia X10 5G a few weeks ago. But these phones are not sold everywhere.
