by Jeet 0

After rolling out Android Oreo updates, HMD Global has now started releasing a new update for the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 in some markets which brings the latest March Android security patch.

According to the user report, the update is around 132MB in size and is being rolled out in batches. Interestingly, the update comes just a couple of days after Google started the rollout of the latest Android security patch for eligible Pixel and Nexus devices.

This new update brings a fix for a critical security vulnerability in Media framework that could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process.

The company has not provided any specific features in the update apart from the March Android security patch. Once the update is available for your device, you’ll be prompted to download this update. However, you can also check by going to Settings and searching system updates and then by checking for the update.

This just goes on showing how consistent HMD Global is when it comes to releasing software updates. The company has been quick in seeding update to its phones, be it monthly patches or the Android update. Both the phones — Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 were launched with Android Nougat out-of-the-box and received Android Oreo update in January.
