The latest Nokia 5 August 2017 software update is now live and the OTA should arrive on your phone any time now. The update started to roll out a couple of days back and is now available globally for all Nokia 5 users. We were lucky enough to catch the official OTA zip file from the Nokia 5 and here it is for anyone who wants to flash the software update manually on the phone. This update brings no new features or enhancements like the last updates.
August 2017 update for the Nokia 5 only brings in the latest Google Security Patch 2017-08 — nothing else, sadly. Nokia 5 already runs the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat, so the next major update will be the upcoming Android O release. Nokia 3 is confirmed for getting Android O, so will Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 phones. All thanks to HMD Global and their promise of keeping the Nokia phones up-to-date for two years.
The update size is just 125MB and there are no new features, UI updates or anything else — atleast not mentioned in the official changelog. Like always, we recommend installing this update ASAP to keep yourself safe from any Android security issues.
This is the official changelog from the OTA update:
