The HMD-made Nokia 6 is starting to get Android 7.1.1. Considering that the smartphone was just launched earlier this year, that doesn't seem to be unusual.

Granted, not-smart phones back then, like the Nokia 5110, were less sophisticated but also less fragile. The Nokia 6 naturally raised the question of whether Nokia and HMD, freed from any Microsoft influence, could pull off something similar in this day and age. Fortunately for us, JerryRigEverything did all the testing so that we won’t have to find out ourselves the hard way.
