A slew of Nokia phones including Nokia 6.1 Plus (X6) gets latest Android Security Patch

The steady rise of HMD Global’s Nokia brand is not just hinged on the strong reputation of the brand in the past or the beauty of its smartphone designs. The growth is also stimulated by the company’s efforts in ensuring users of its smartphones get the latest software updates. In this regard, the company has been rolling out software updates for a number of its devices in the past few weeks.

The updates are not really major ones but are extremely crucial since they come with the latest security patch. One of the models receiving the update is the Nokia 3. The new update on the device brings with it the November 2018 security patch which unfortunately doesn’t upgrade the software from Android 8.0 Oreo. Users can avail themselves of the update via OTA and it comes with a file size of 82.75MB.

In addition, the Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco also received the update with the same November 2018 security patch. In case you own any of the affected models, just navigate to the settings option and check under the ‘About Phone’ options. Since it is an OTA update, the download link will be available there. We still have to wait for Android Pie to roll out for a Nokia phone. Hopefully, that would happen rapidly as soon as Nokia launches a phone with Android Pie or later versions, all thanks to Project Treble and Google’s continuous support.
