Where’s Android 10 update ?

Recently HMD Global released Android 10 update for the Nokia 6.1, 6.1 Plus & 7 Plus users one by one for three consecutive days. After that several Nokia 7.2 users started expecting the same update to arrive in their phone. But the latest update only contains security patch for the January month. So, why just security patch & where’s the Android 10 ? Let’s find out its answer.

Last month (December 2019) when HMD announced Nokia 2.3 at the launch event held in Cairo they promised Android 10 for the Nokia 7.2 & some other Nokia phones. Pronav Shroff (General Manager, HMD Global) announced on the stage that Nokia 7 Plus, 6.1 Plus & 6.1 Plus users will get Android 10 update in the next month (January 2020). Keeping their promised HMD released the update for those devices just within first two weeks of this month.

Now coming to Android 10 update for the Nokia 7.2, 6.2 & other eligible devices, HMD has promised to release that before the end of Q1 2020 (Between January-March).

So, once HMD completes their internal testing of Android 10 this update will be available for your Nokia 7.2. You have received security patch for the January month doesn’t mean Android 10 will not arrive in this month. It can arrive anytime between January to March.
