HMD Global’s Nokia 6.2 is the latest Nokia device to receive the green light to make the jump to Android 10.
In a month where a record 5 devices have all been updated, HMD Global’s busiest so far this year, the Nokia 6.2 is in good company.
Now, as per its revised schedule, time is only running out for the Nokia 3.1 Plus to join the fray. We expect that to happen any time now.
The upgrade is the device’s first major bump as it arrived running Android 9 Pie when it was announced in Berlin in September at last year’s IFA event alongside the Nokia 7.2.
Since its arrival in the local market, 2 months later, the Nokia 6.2 has been a solid option in the mid-range segment offering what is possibly one of the best Android experiences while still battling it out with solid options from the likes of Samsung, Xiaomi and Huawei.
Among that competition, it is one of the last devices to get its Android 10 fix. Huawei’s Y9 Prime 2019 and P30 Lite, which undercut the Nokia 6.2 in price (at least for most of the time that the 6.2 has been available), had already received their Android 10 upgrades. As had Samsung’s Galaxy A50 whose update started rolling out just a few weeks ago.
Of course, unlike the aforementioned devices, the Nokia 6.2 is still guaranteed another shot at a major upgrade – Android 11 – unlike its competitors. Don’t get me started on the monthly security updates.
The Nokia 6.2’s Android 10 update, which clocks in at just 1.54 gigabytes, arrives with the April 2020 security patch.
As we have seen this year, the update is arriving in waves with at least 10 per cent of users in wave 1 markets – countries in Asia and Europe – getting the update today and the remainder assured of getting it by May 3rd at the latest. Kenyan users of the device can expect it to land, at the latest, any time after that.
