Updated: Android 7.1.2 Nougat for Nokia 5 (TA-1021, TA-1024 & TA-1053) available now

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.

  • ashish bajpai

    Still not getting this update in India

  • Sahil Malik

    My nokia 6 didn’t get this update yet…in India, if this anything related with linking with Amazon. We don’t liking this we got third party linking which is not in other countries still we have no problem. But, later updates? That is hurting.

    • Same here. Nokia 6. India. No Update. -_-

      • Sahil Malik

        May be We will get Oreo update late as well for nokia 6 when it will be available worldwide. I love nokia but this is not good. One of the main reason I was excited about this phone was faster updates which is not happening in India.

        • Vadim Olaru

          My Nokia 6 TA-1003 got 2017-10 update. But not Android 7.1.2…. May be next month…

          • Sahil Malik

            Where are you from?

          • Lawrence Jerome Braganza

            Android 7.1.2 is released only for Nokia 6 TA-1021 variant in some markets, so may be you need to wait.

            • I have TA-1021 variant. Update is not available in India. -_-

        • Regular updates was the only reason why I purchased Nokia 6. And yeah.. India is getting update very late. We will get update around 28 October. Android releases update on 1st of every month and in India we get in the end of month. -_-
