HMD has started pushing December Security update to Nokia 5 after Nokia 3, Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 globally. Our readers have tipped us about the update being available for Nokia 5 in many markets including India.
Just keep in mind that in case you have updated your Nokia 5 to Android Oreo Beta, you have already got the December Security update. This update is available for only those Nokia 5 users who are still on Android 7.1.2 and on November patch.
As you can see in the screenshots above the December security update for Nokia 5 is around 122.6 MB in size. You will either be prompted to download this update or you can check by going to Settings and searching system updates and then by checking for the update.
Nokia 5 December Security update changelog:
The changelog for the update mentions the December Security patch that brings many fixes for vulnerabilities along with improved system stability and user interface enhancements. But sadly it still doesn’t fix the multitasking bug faced by many on Nokia 5. Read the full changelog for December Security patch update 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.
Thanks Shubham for the tip & screenshot. Cheers!!
