[Wave 2 begins] Hurray! Nokia 6.2 Android 10 update finally rolling out (Download link inside)

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

Original story (published on April 28) follows:

HMD Global is rolling out the stable version of the Nokia 6.2 Android 10 update. The update is arriving over the air, but not everyone will receive it today due to the staged rollout.

The Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 were scheduled to receive the update to Android 10 in Q1 2020. However, things took a twist when coronavirus struck, paralyzing operations of not just HMD Global, but also many other companies based in and outside China.

The Finnish company then came out with a revised roadmap that placed the availability of the new OS for the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 6.2 anywhere between the end of Q1 and the beginning of Q2 2020.

Unfortunately for 6.2 owners, the stable Android 10 update was only released for the Nokia 7.2. Of course, Nokia 6.2 owners weren’t so happy with this move, which was swiftly followed by a Pie-based April patch.

The wait has come to an end, though. Taking to Twitter, the usual suspect, Juho Sarvikas, has revealed that Nokia 6.2 owners can finally install the latest Android OS on their handsets.
