The update arrives as version V4.10C and brings several new features, along with the December Android security patch. As per the official changelog, the major highlights include a new dark mode, smart reply, gesture navigation, and additional controls for privacy and location. Just as you would expect from a major OS upgrade, the update weighs in at a hefty 1.4GB in terms of size.

If you own a Nokia 7 Plus and haven't received an update notification yet, you can look for it manually by navigating to Settings > About Phone > System updates > Check for update. However, the update hasn't started rolling out in all markets just yet, so some of you may have to wait at least a few more days.

HMD Global has so far rolled out the stable Android 10 update for the Nokia 7.1, Nokia 8.1, Nokia 9 PureView, and Nokia 6.1 Plus. The company is expected to roll out the Android 10 update for five more phones before the current quarter comes to an end: Nokia 6.1, Nokia 2.2, Nokia 3.1 Plus, Nokia 3.2, and Nokia 4.2.

Nokia 7.2

Nokia 7.2 is among the most impressive smartphones that HMD Global currently sells. The mid-range phone has an impressive 6.3-inch HDR Full HD+ display, an attractive and durable design, triple rear cameras, as well as decent battery life. It is also a part of the Android One program, which means you can expect it to continue receiving regular security updates for up to three years.

  • Waiting for this and the 7.2's update.
  • Dear HMD - Nokia. It's really sad to see your [their] lack of effort to make full use of your own device.
    Yes, you gave us Android 10, but you actually render our devices worse than before because of your inability to make proper use of the hw in your own [beep] device!? Of course this Android 10 upgrade will mean the end of acceptable photos and camera features, because the mod by backrider (over on xda developers), of the gcam is now not working on Android 10, and HMD Global - Nokia own version is ahrmmm - let's say sub-optimal on their own hardware. Worst is almost, that it will also mean the end of acceptable quality recording, again because the version of audio recorder that the same user "backrider" ported to N7P, including its OZO audio made its recording quality better than most competition, when recording on the N7P (with OZO). Without OZO, any recording will sound as good (no, bad!) as the cheapest WISH-type piece of junk - as if everything is recorded inside a tin can on a trainstation. Nokia "HMD Global" - You can do better, can't you?
    Or maybe you can't afford real coders, and hope we solve your issues via xda developers and the likes? Too bad.
