Nokia 6 receives Android 7.1.1 Nougat
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.
