Android 7.1.1 Nougat Update for Nokia 6 Now Rolling Out Ahead of Its Global Release

The Nokia 6 is yet to reach several markets, but ahead of the global launch in May, the smartphone is receiving a new Android Nougat update that takes it to latest version 7.1.1. HMD Global, Nokia’s parent company, launched the Nokia 6 in China in January but announced the global roll-out of the phone only at the MWC 2017 event.

At the same event, HMD promised that they would roll out monthly security patches along with regular software updates and the Finnish startup company is keeping its promise. Roland Quandt @rquandt posted the screenshot on twitter revealing that the company is currently rolling out the new update to Nokia 6 users.

If you already own Nokia 6, you can check out for the update in the software updates section. The update comes with a build number 00CN_3_170 and weighs 369MB in size. Also, your Nokia should at least have 616MB of free storage space for the update to be installed.

The update comes with Google’s April security patch fixes. As per the changelog, the update enhances power saving and background management in the Nokia 6 to deliver better battery life. Also, it adds support for 4G/3G dual-SIM dual-standby. Moreover, the Nokia USB driver has been updated to latest version, and all the preinstalled apps have been replaced with latest versions.

There are not many new features included in the OS, though. With this update, the Nokia 6 joins the list of very few smartphones which received the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update. Till now, the Google Pixel and Nexus phones, the OnePlus 3, 3T, and the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge has been given the upgrade.

Besides, there are various rumours claiming that Nokia will launch the Nokia 3, Nokia 5, Nokia 6, and the Nokia 3310 in India by the end of May or early June. But there’s no final official information from the company.
