Nokia 3.1 Plus starts getting December security update, Nokia 7.2 picks up new build as well (Download links inside)

During the initial phase of Android, only Google phones were the ones that received the latest updates more frequently and in time while smartphones from other OEMs were always kept in the pipeline.

However, with the excellent growth and adoption of the Android platform by various smartphone brands, the update frequency for other brands also improved and now there are OEMs like OnePlus and even Samsung that are pushing the updates faster than Google itself.

Nokia is also one of the top names to reckon with when it comes to pushing fast and timely security and other firmware related updates. And in a recent development, two Nokia smartphones i.e. Nokia 7.2 and 3.1 Plus are receiving the latest December 2019 security update.

Notably, the update for Nokia 7.2 brings in some other stability and UI enhancements over the initial December build while the update on Nokia 3.1 Plus is purely incremental in nature. Now, let us take a look at the updates one by one.
