[New build live for India] Nokia 2.2 Android 10 update finally gets rolling

New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on March 17, 2020) follows:

HMD Global is now rolling out the stable Nokia 2.2 Android 10 update across the globe.

In its original Android 10 roadmap plans, the Finnish company had promised to bring Android 10 to the Nokia 2.2 alongside the Nokia 4.2, Nokia 3.2 and Nokia 3.1 Plus before mid-Q1 2020.

But then the coronavirus happened in China, forcing the company to revise its initial plans based on the outcomes of this epidemic.

Published not long ago (image above), the revised roadmap placed the Nokia 2.2 Android 10 update in late Q1, suggesting that the rollout would begin before the end of March 2020.

By the time the revised roadmap went live, we had already gotten wind of the arrival of the update on the Nokia 2.2, but there was no substantial evidence that the device was indeed receiving the new OS.

Well, as I write this, Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, has taken to Twitter to reveal that the Android 10 update is now available for the Nokia 2.2.

This is an airborne update that has just been announced, so it’s likely that some units may have to wait until later this week to receive the OTA download notification.

The update has software version V2.300 and tags along things like Dark mode, navigation gestures, additional controls for privacy and location and February 2020 security patch.
