Nokia 7.2 Android 10 Update: Features and Changelog

Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global, broke the news about the Android 10 update for the Nokia 7.2 on March 31, 2020 on his official Twitter handle.

Though the Nokia 7.2 is part of Google’s Android One program, which is basically intended to ensure quick Android updates, the Nokia 7.2 has certainly not had its share of luck, as Android 10 has been around for more than six months now. As per the company, the latest update rollouts have been delayed primarily because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, it is finally here on the device, so we should not keep complaining.

The update is around 1.57GB in size and is currently being rolled out over the air to the Nokia 7.2 devices. If you have not yet received the update, know that it is a staged rollout, so it might take some time for the update to reach your device. You can still manually check it out by tapping the settings icon on your device and hitting the Check for Updates section from there. If the update has already arrived on your smartphone, you can just tap the update button in order to update your Nokia 7.2 to the latest Android 10 OS.
