Nokia 6.2 second December update goes live, possibly preparing for Android 10 (Download links inside)

Nokia was undeniably the uncrowned king of the pre-smartphone era. They were synonymous to handsets once. However, the choices the company made in terms of platform backfired them. Result? They had to live in exile for quite some time.

In the return, under the helm of HMD Global, they discarded the mistake by deciding to opt for Android. To tell the truth, the OS has grown to become something inevitable by then. In the second arrival, they are focusing more on the delivery of updates than on the specs, it seems.

In the last couple of months, Nokia 9 PureView, Nokia 7.1, and Nokia 7 got Android 10 stable update among others. To put things into perspective, you should know that Samsung is still working on the same for their last year’s flagships.
