Nokia 5 receives Android July 2017 Security update

Not only for Nokia 3, but HMD has released a July software update for Nokia 5 as well. While Nokia 3 received more than just July Android Security update in terms of UI changes and improvements, Nokia 5 software update only brings July Android Security fixes from Google.

The update for Nokia 5 is around 145MB 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.

HMD has in fact been quite consistent in terms of releasing Monthly Security updates and OS updates for Nokia smartphones already available in the market. Nokia 6 was the first smartphone on the market to get July Security update beating even likes of Pixel and Nexus.
