Google rolled out the first stable Android 10 update to its Pixel devices all the way back in September last year. Since then, several OEMs have released the update to some of their latest devices and are in the process of rolling it out to older devices. In order to give users an idea of when the update will be available on their devices, a few smartphone manufacturers even shared an update roadmap for their portfolio of devices. Among these was HMD Global, which has successfully managed to stick to the timeline listed in the Android 10 update roadmap so far. The company has already released Android 10 updates for a number of its Nokia branded smartphones, including the Nokia 9 Pureview, Nokia 8.1, Nokia 7.1, Nokia 7 Plus, and more. However, things seem to have slowed down a bit as the company barely managed to meet the timeline for the Nokia 7.2 update last month and is now rolling out the update for the Nokia 4.2, which was also expected to receive it last month.

The company’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, recently announced the Android 10 rollout for the Nokia 4.2 on Twitter and several users on the platform have confirmed that they’ve started receiving the update on their devices. The update introduces all the new features that Google rolled out with Android 10, including a system-wide dark mode, gesture navigation, smart replies, and more. On top of that, it also includes the Android security patches for March 2020. In a post on the Nokia community forums, the company has revealed that the update is being rolled out in a staggered fashion in order to ensure a smooth rollout and it will initially be available to just 10% of users across 43 regions that the company currently operates in. By April 12th, the update will be rolled out to 50% of Nokia 4.2 users and it should reach all users by April 14th.
