Both the mid-rangers, 6.1 Plus and 5.1 Plus belongs to the Android One platform, which promises software updates faster than any third-party OEMs can offer. While the HMD Global might have been not early to the party, it surely hasn’t been late as most of the incumbent players haven’t started this update.
