HMD Global’s Nokia was recently ranked as the most trusted smartphone brand by Counterpoint in terms of security, build quality and software updates. The well-deserved ranking is a reflection of the brand’s policy of pushing regular updates to supported models promptly. To put in perspective Nokia’s swift Android update policy, a Nokia 5.3 model running on the latest Android 11 operating system has been spotted on the Geekbench database.
The model explicitly listed as HMD Global Nokia 5.3 is the first Nokia model to be spotted on GeekBench with Android 11 onboard. It also is the second model that we are seeing aside from the Nokia 8.3 5G running on Android 11.Android 11 and even Android 12 as well as 3 years of security updates.
To recall, the Nokia 5.3 packs a 6.55-inch display with an HD+ resolution of 720p. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
On the back are four cameras – a 13MP f/1.8 primary sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, a 5MP ultrawide angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera. The selfie camera is an 8MP sensor. Further, the Nokia 5.3 packs a 4000mAh battery capacity with support for 10W charging. The phone comes with an audio jack, FM radio, Bluetooth 4.2 and a dedicated Google Assistant button on the side.
According to the brand’s Android 11 update schedule released earlier this month, Nokia smartphones will start receiving Android 11 update from Q4 2020 while the last set of models would have gotten the update by Q2 2021. The Nokia 5.3 may not likely be among the first set of models to get the update but we expect its own update to start rolling out in no distant time.
