you can see, two devices are going to receive the update this month. 4 is scheduled to receive it until March 2019 and the last 2 will receive starting on April 2019. HMD Global promised quick updates and they are sticking to their guns. This means that half way through the year, most Nokia devices are already on Android Pie. This is a great place to be before the announcement of Android Q in the near future.
