HMD Global, the vendor of Nokia devised, has announced that the Android 13 developer preview programme is live on the Nokia X20, enabling application developers to sample the next chapter in Android innovation.
The AndroidTM13 developer preview programme empowers developers to create, test and fine tune their apps ahead of the highly anticipated launch of the new operating system in the second half of this year.
Stephen Taylor, Chief marketing Officer HMD Global, said: “We’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be able to offer access to the Nokia phones Android 13 developer preview programme.”
“We understand that people want to use their phones for longer, and with a Nokia phone, it’s not just hardware durability which comes as standard. A smooth software experience that performs as new for years is just as important, which is why we want to work closely with our developer community on creating the best possible user experience. Longevity is the foundation of our new line-up of Nokia smartphones, so we offer up to three years of OS upgrades and three years of security updates – recognised as one of the most comprehensive offerings in the smartphone market.’
“We can’t wait to receive feedback from our community of dedicated Nokia fans so we can cater to their requirements and continue providing our customers with even more value from the smartphones they love.”
Developers taking part in the programme will be able to collaborate, share ideas and tips with like-minded experts through the Nokia phones community forum. The integrated Feedback app also allows developers to submit issues and reports for further review by HMD Global’s in-house engineering. To enrol, users can register and request the developer builds through the preinstalled MyDevice app.
The programme provides crucial feedback for the development of the next milestone in Android software.
