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 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.
