HMD Global rolls out Android 10 to the Nokia 7.1
Late last week, Nokia started rolling out the stable Android 10 update for the Nokia 9 PureView. The Nokia 9 PureView was the second device from the company to receive the Android 10 update, following the Nokia 8.1. As part of the update schedule shared by the company earlier this year in September, the company was expected to release a similar update for the Nokia 7.1. In keeping with its promise, HMD Global has now started rolling out the Android 10 update to the Nokia 7.1.
According to a recent tweet from HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas, the Android 10 update is now rolling out to Nokia 7.1 users around the world. The update brings all the new features introduced with Android 10, including gesture navigations, smart reply, privacy controls, focus mode, and family link. It’s worth noting that the Nokia 7.1 was launched with a promise of three years’ worth of monthly security updates and two years of OS upgrades. Android 10 is the Nokia 7.1’s second OS update and the device will receive no further OS updates from the company.
