Nokia 6 now receiving Android 7.1.1 Nougat update

Nokia 6 now receiving Android 7.1.1 Nougat update

"You get an experience that's focused and clutter-free, and we'll make sure you keep getting regular updates, so you'll always stay on top of features and security", notes Nokia on its website. It will also update Nokia USB drivers and many other preinstalled apps. This could be the sketch of the Nokia 5 or Nokia 6, which is already official.

Not only does it upgrade the phone's OS to Android 7.1.1, but also adds support for 4G/3G dual sim dual standby.

According to the reports, this new Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for Nokia 6 is now available in China and a few other markets in the world. 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.

"Android 7.1.1 Nougat update is being rolled out to the Nokia 6 users as we speak", reported the publication. Now Nokia Power User has obtained design sketches of both the premium devices from a tipster. It looks like the first Nokia-branded smartphone will be jumping on the 7.1.1 bandwagon way before many other flagship devices. The update comes with a build number 00CN_3_170 and weighs 369MB in size.

Besides, the update also installs the April's security patch on the smartphone which needless to say, gets rid of security vulnerabilities, if any, and brings along bug fixes and overall system improvements. Globally, the price of the Nokia 6 is Euros 229 and the ARTE edition carries a tag of Euros 299. President of HMD Mobile India Ajey Mehta has said that Nokia phones, including the Nokia 6 will be launched in India by the end of the second quarter of 2017 or before the end of June. Envisioned by Phone Designer on Facebook, the phone has a 5.5-inch screen with a 2:1 aspect ratio and packs front-firing stereo speakers despite the exceedingly thin bezels on all sides. Speaking of storage capacity, it has 4GB RAM and 32GB/64GB of internal memory, besides having the option of an expandable memory of up to 128GB through microSD.
