Update: As confirmed by a reader in the comments section and after checking on our device, we can confirm that after TA-1021 variant the TA-1024 (Europe) & TA-1053 (India) variants are also receiving Android 7.1.2 update.
Nokia 6 received Android 7.1.2 days ago and now Nokia 5 has started to get Android 7.1.2 Nougat update in some markets. We had reported about the possibility of Nokia Android Phones receiving Android 7.1.2 Nougat update before the Android Oreo update. We also reported exclusively that Nokia 8 will directly upgrade to Android Oreo.
The software update that brings Android 7.1.2 Nougat for Nokia 5 also packs the October security update. It is not yet available in India though. Do let us know in comments if it is rolling out in your market.
As you can see in the screenshots above the Android 7.1.2 + October security update for Nokia 5 is 690.2 MB in size. The changelog for the update mentions improved system stability and user-interface enhancements too.
Android 7.1.2 brings enhanced notification stability, Battery Usage alerts, fingerprint swipe performance improvements and more. It also packs a number of bug fixes, added features, and general performance/stability improvements. You can read the full Android 7.1.2 changelog by clicking here.
HMD has been quite consistent in terms of releasing Monthly Security updates and OS updates for Nokia smartphones already available in the market. HMD has also made it clear that all Nokia Android Phones will receive minimum two years of OS update support.
