Nokia 6 Users Receiving Update to Android 7.1.1

Nokia 6 Users Receiving Update to Android 7.1.1

Nokia tries to make a comeback lately to the smartphone market. The recently released smartphone ran on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It would actually be nice to have great Nokia handsets again. With this update, the Nokia 6 joins the list of very few smartphones which received the Android 7.1.1 Nougat update. Nokia 6 (which is now running on Android 7.0 Nougat) is apparently receiving Android 7.1.1 Nougat in China through OTA (Over The Air) update before going global. We should get to hear more scoop about Nokia 9 and 8 in the coming days, so stay tuned. It also updates Nokia USB driver and version of pre-loaded applications. Also, once the update is installed, the Nokia 6 will offer support for 4G/3G dual-SIM dual-standby.

The Nokia 6 comes running Android Nougat operating system, sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1,080x1,920 pixels (403 ppi pixel density), powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and features an immersive sound with Dolby Atmos and dual speakers. These included Night Light, improvements to the touch display, and new gestures compatible with the fingerprint sensor. Globally, the price of the Nokia 6 is Euros 229 and the ARTE edition carries a tag of Euros 299. The Android Soul has reported that the new Nougat version for the device weighs 369MB but needs at least 620MB free storage in order to install the update. A recent report by NokiaPowerUser has confirmed the possible release time of the already announced Nokia phones.

In addition, Google will not be able to demand that other competing search engines and apps can not be installed. The settlement ends a two-year fight with Russian antitrust regulators.

Nokia is ready to dispatch no less than one if not two or even maybe three new smartphone devices this year with users and tech fans anticipating Nokia's next flagship device.

The Nokia 6 also gets the monthly security patch from Google - 2017.4.
