[Updated] Nokia 6.2 Android 10 update not in sight as Pie-based April security patch arrives (Download link inside)

This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on April 8) follows:

With the deadline for rolling out Android 10 update to the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 fast-approaching with no signs of the OS, the company had to step in and calm down concerned device owners with the assurance of availing the update sooner than later.

This came in the form of a revised roadmap, where the company promised to push the stable Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 Android 10 update between the end of Q1 and the beginning of Q2 2020.

Indeed, HMD Global went on to keep its promise, but only for the Nokia 7.2. As part of the update, the company also included VoWiFi support for Airtel subscribers in India, but some say the update triggered a dual SIM recovery mode bug.

Amid all these, Nokia 6.2 owners have been left an unhappy lot and are now demanding for the update to be released. At this point, no one knows when the OTA package for the Nokia 6.2 Android 10 update will go live, but what looks certain is that it won’t be arriving anytime soon.

This is after owners of the handset started receiving a new software update that bumps the security patch level to the latest available – April 2020. However, the base OS stays at Android Pie, which all but confirms the wait for Android 10 is still on.

The new update is arriving over the air weighing in at 71.12MB in some markets or 67.8MB in others and bumps the software version to V1.17B. As it is usual with OTA updates, it may take time before all Nokia 6.2 units get this one, so we did you the favor of including the download links.

Note that you can only install the update manually if your Nokia 6.2 has an unlocked bootloader, otherwise, sit back and wait for the OTA update, which should arrive by the end of the week. Also, make sure you grab the firmware for your model/region to avoid any issues afterwards.

  • Device: Nokia 6.2
  • Channel: Global/Europe/India Stable
  • Version: V1.17B
  • Android: 9

If you can’t keep on waiting, you can try the unofficial Nokia 6.2 Android 10 update via LineageOS 17. See the full details here.
