The long forgotten kingdom of Nokia is back into the Android world with 3 new smartphone releases this year, viz, Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 8. All of them are already running the new Android 7.1.1 Nougat firmware update out of the box. Today, Nokia released Nougat based July 2017 security patch update. The update has been captured by one of the Nokia 6 users. It comes in a small package of 380.39 MB with a package name update.zip.
For those who haven’t receive the OTA notification on their phones yet, can manually download the zip file and flash it via stock recovery. July update brings the official Google Play Store to the Chinese variant of Nokia 6 (TA-1000).
