Nokia 7.1 & Nokia 9 PureView December security updates up for grabs (Download link inside)

Back in the previous year, Nokia has been one of the consistent smartphone brands that attained top position when it comes to pushing out timely security and firmware updates.

Though there were some times where Samsung outperformed every OEM and pushed the December 2019 security updates faster than even Google itself.

However, Nokia caught up with the pace and delivered the December patchset to several devices. And in recent development, two Nokia devices i.e. Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 9 PureView have been served with new updates.

Reportedly, both the devices are grabbing the December 2019 security patchset. Note that Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 9 PureView have already been upgraded to Android 10 across the globe but with November 2019 security patch. 

Now, this new incremental update bumps the security patch level from November to December 2019. Let us take a look at the updates received on both the devices one by one:

Nokia 7.1

Nokia 7.1 was launched back in October 2018, and packs in some decent specs like Snapdragon 636, 3/4 GB of RAM, offers up to 64 GB of onboard storage, a 5.84-inch display, 3,060 mAh battery, etc.

However, looking at the discussion on Reddit, this update still fails to address the WiFi, call and mic issues on the device. The update is being pushed via OTA but, you can upgrade your Nokia 7.1 by grabbing the zip file from below:
