The new firmware arrives more than a month before the global launch of this smartphone, which is currently available in a limited number of markets, including China. This 5.5-inch handset launched with Android 7.0 Nougat on board and now HMD Global keeps the promise to deliver fast and regular updates to the Nokia smartphones on the market.

The new firmware requires 616 MB of space to be installed, but only needs to download 369 MB of data. The new software version is 00CN_3_170 and its highlights include the following:

  • Android 7.1.1 Nougat
  • improved power saving and background management
  • new Nokia USB driver
  • updated versions of preloaded applications
  • 4G/3G dual-SIM dual-standby support
  • Android April 2017 security patch

The US market should receive the Nokia 6 in May, when the lower-end Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 smartphones should also debut globally. All these handsets come with stock Android firmware and should always be in the first waves of devices to be updated.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
