HMD has been quite consistent in terms of releasing Monthly Security updates and OS updates for Nokia smartphones already available in the market. It has now started pushing Android August 2017 Security updates for both Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.
As per tips received from our readers, global variants of Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 are getting the August Android patches OTA. You can go to Google’s official August Security Bulletin page for reading the details about patches that August Android update brings.
We don’t have confirmation yet for Nokia 6 China variant and we will let you know when that happens. Nokia 3 also hasn’t started receiving the August security update yet.
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.
HMD has also made it clear that all Nokia Android Phones will receive minimum two years of OS update support. HMD confirmed Android O roll-out to Nokia 3, 5 and 6 when it is released by Google in a statement given to us. Android P the successor to Android O is confirmed too because of the promise of 2-years of update support.
Thanks, Hanu, Tero and others for the tips. Cheers!!
