The Nokia 7.2 was originally promised to get the Android 10 update in Q1 2020. We're at the end of Q1, however, and that plan appears to have been scrapped with official confirmation that the phone will receive the update in Q2 instead.
Ricci Rox,

Nokia—HMD Global, if you want to get technical—has been one of the major flagbearers for the Android One program. While we remain skeptical of the real-world benefits of the program, Android One is designed to provide timely, consistent updates. Nokia has managed to mostly deliver on that end, but the company's Android 10 rollout looks to have been met with some slight issues.

The company launched the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 in September last year, and promised that the phones would receive the Android 10 update in the first quarter of 2020. Well, we're already in the last month of the quarter and neither phone has received the Android 10 update. The Finnish company recently revealed an updated Android 10 release roadmap that had the Nokia 6.2, Nokia 7.2, and all the other third-gen phones listed to get the update at the tail end of this month.

It's unlikely that the company will be able to meet up with that schedule for the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2, however. A user on XDA-Developer has provided a screenshot showing confirmation from a Nokia customer service rep that the Nokia 7.2 will receive the Android 10 update in Q2. We expect that timeline to hold true for the company's other devices listed for a late-March Android 10 rollout.
