Nokia 8, 6, 5, and 3 get an extended year of security updates

It seems that HMD Global is once again one-upping other manufacturers by showing them how to reward their faithful customers as far as software goes.

HMD Global has been making Nokia phones that are best known for their quick and regularly updated software as well as their affordable prices.
