Android 10 is now rolling out to the Nokia 7.1


When it comes to software updates some brands such as OnePlus, Samsung, and even Huawei are diligently pushing out Android 10 betas and stable OTAs, and then we have the flip side of the coin that borders on the ridiculous such as Android Pie having only recently begun rolling out to the HTC U11 on Sprint. Nokia is a smartphone brand that is on the ball when it comes to timeliness and longevity of updates, with the Nokia 7.1 being the latest model to be upgraded to Android 10.

As a participant in the Android One program, the Nokia 7.1 is scheduled to get 2 years of OS upgrades and 3 years of monthly security updates, with the Android 10 firmware being the second major OS upgrade for the handset.

Changelog:

  • Gesture Navigation: control of your Nokia smartphone just got slicker, with faster and more intuitive controls at the tip of your fingers
  • Smart Reply: receive even smarter responses in messages, not just wording but actions you can take
  • Privacy Controls: have even more control of your personal data all in one place, and control when your location is shared with your apps – be that always, just while in use, or never
  • Focus mode: block out distracting apps when you need to concentrate on what’s important (try it now in Beta)
  • Family Link: now part of the Digital Wellbeing settings, helping parents set digital ground rules for the whole family

If you haven’t received notification that the OTA update is available to download, why not head over to Settings and smash the ‘Check for Updates’ button.

He’s been an Android fan ever since owning an HTC Hero, with the Dell Streak being his first phablet.
