[Update 2: Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7 Plus too] HMD Global rolls out Android 10 for the Nokia 6.1 Plus

Update 1 (1/7/2020 @ 5:00 PM ET): HMD Global announces they’re rolling out the Android 10 update for the Nokia 7 Plus too. The article as published on January 7, 2020, is preserved as below.

When it comes to updates, HMD Global is one of the few manufacturers that delivers timely updates for its current generation of Nokia smartphones. Following the official rollout of Android 10 in September last year, HMD Global revealed an update roadmap for its devices. In keeping with the update schedule, the company rolled out the Android 10 update for the Nokia 8.1 early in October, which was followed by the Nokia 9 PureView and the Nokia 7.1 in December. Now, the company is rolling out the update for the Nokia 6.1 Plus.

The company recently took to Twitter to announce the Android 10 rollout for the Nokia 6.1 Plus. As per a recent report from FoneArena, the update has already started rolling out to the device globally and it brings the Android security patches for December 2019 in tow. HMD Global launched the device back in August of 2018 and it ran Android 8 Oreo out of the box. The device was subsequently updated to Android 9 Pie later that year in October. With the Android 10 rollout, HMD Global has fulfilled its promise of delivering two Android OS updates to the device and we expect the device to receive security updates for another year.

As with the Android 10 update released on other Nokia devices, the update for the 6.1 Plus brings all the new security and privacy features introduced in Android 10. It also brings features like the new system-wide dark mode, Smart Reply, Focus Mode, dedicated “Privacy section’, gesture navigation, and much more. The update, version 4.10C, is about 1.3GB in size and should reach your phone soon.
