You can now download the latest Nokia 6 Android 7.1.2 Nougat system update, along with October 2017 security patch. This latest over-the-air (OTA) update just started rolling out earlier today and is now available for the Nokia 6 (TA-1021) users. It was rumoured last week that we will be seeing an Android 7.1.2 Nougat system update before Oreo arrives on the Nokia phones.
Nokia 6 Android 7.1.2 update brings a few minor UI enhancements, some improvements to the system stability and brings the Android security patch level to October 2017. This update is in line with HMD Global’s promise of keeping their phones up-to-date with the latest security patches from Google and software upgrades. Android 7.1.2 is more of a behind-the-scenes update, instead of bringing major visual changes.
