This would seem to confirm HMD Global's previous claims that it will keep its Android-based Nokia smartphones updated regularly.
The various new features that come with the update include shortcut support on home screen, bug fixing, new and updated emoji, among others. Some preloaded apps on the smartphone also get updated.
The news of the Nokia 6 receiving the Android N software update comes courtesy publication The Android Soul.
The phone runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat with stock interface. Instead, the company took the wraps off three mid-end Android smartphones - the Nokia 6, 5 and 3, alongside a revamped version of Nokia 3310. Also, once the update is installed, the Nokia 6 will offer support for 4G/3G dual-SIM dual-standby.
"Android 7.1.1 Nougat update is being rolled out to the Nokia 6 users as we speak", reported the publication. That means it is probably a good idea for you to download the update only over a Wi-Fi network and not the cellular data network. Given the fact that the company started rolling out the software update this quickly to the Nokia 6, we could witness it receiving the Android O sooner than other flagship smartphones.More news: Signs Of Hospitality To Life Found On Saturn's Moon Enceladus
This update, weighing around 370 MB will bring the latest April security patch to the device also.
With this, Nokia is planning to launch its two more Android smartphones in the world named with Nokia 3 and Nokia 5.
