HMD Global has confirmed that its Nokia 9 PureView flagship smartphone won’t be getting the Android 11 update. To recall, the company had released the device back in 2019. HMD Global has since been launching fairly regular OS updates for the device, with Android 10 currently on offer.

As part of an official statement found on HMD Global’s Polish website, the company has announced that it not going to launch an Android 11 update for the Nokia 9 PureView. It came to this decision because of “incompatibilities between the camera and software”. The company has stated that it is still set on releasing security updates for the smartphone.

The Nokia 9 PureView’s defining feature is five 12MP rear cameras, which work in tandem to offer improved image quality. Upgrading to Android 11 would “lead to a reduction in user experience” as far as the cameras are concerned.

The Nokia 9 PureView packs a 5.99-inch QHD(1440 x 2880) OLED screen and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. The device pack a rear Penta-camera setup (12MP each) with ZEISS optics.
