Nokia 6 is now receiving the September 2017 security patch from Google. HMD Global has been very consistent with regular Android security system updates for all their Nokia phones. They promised regular updates for two-years for all their Nokia devices, and they have kept up their end so far. A big thank you to HMD Global / Nokia for this!
This month, Nokia 5 was the first phone to receive Android security patch for September 2017. This was even before this patch was rolled out for the Google Pixel and Nexus devices. And now, the same has been released for the Nokia 6. It has been reported that the September 2017 update is now live for Nokia 6 at some places, but still no update in the Middle East and and most European countries. This looks like a phased roll out, so we can expect the update to drop for us by tomorrow.
