Nokia 5.1 Plus, 6.1, 6.1 Plus, 7 Plus & 7.1 September security update rolling out

Nokia restarted their smartphone business under the supervision of HMD Global. By not being to adapt to the Android ecosystem, they were literally thrown out of business. And, HMD chose nothing but Android as their operating system.

AT IFA 2019 in Berlin, the company announced three devices- Nokia 5.2, 6.2 and 7.2. Coming out of the box with Android 9.0 (Pie), Nokia 7.2 packs in Snapdragon 660 SoC under the hood. It offers up to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB onboard storage with a dedicated SD card slot.

Sometimes OEMs untie software updates with new features, not this time, though! Apart from bumping up the patch to September, these overhauls don’t bring anything new to either of the handsets. The brand already hinted at bringing Android 10 to Nokia 8.1. So, it will have a handful of new attributes soon.
