Nokia 9 PureView Android 10 Update Finally Rolling Out in India Along with April Security Patch


Nokia’s current flagship smartphone, with somewhat dated internals, called the Nokia 9 PureView is starting to receive the Android 10 update in India. While Nokia has been known to provide updates quite fast to its devices owing to their stock Android interface, the Android 10 update for its flagship device has been unreasonably delayed. Most major OEMs have already rolled out the latest Android version on their devices, as Google prepares to launch Android 11 next month.

However, Nokia is one of the few Android brands to cover a whopping 94 percent of its lineup of devices with the Android 10 update. Nokia 9 PureView joins a list of 12 more devices that have received the update till now which are Nokia 6.1, Nokia 4.2, Nokia 3.2, Nokia 2.3,  Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 8.1, Nokia 7.2, Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 7.1Nokia 6.2, Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 2.2.

The update for Indian users of the Nokia 9 PureView should be available starting today. You can check if you have received the update by going to the Settings menu and clicking ‘Software Update’.

Nokia 9 PureView specifications

The Nokia 9 PureView, which was announced last year in July, was the first phone to come with a penta-camera setup on the back. The phone’s display is of the AMOLED variety and measures 5.99-inches and has FHD+ resolution. Even so, the giant bezels flanking the display give it an underwhelming look compared to smartphones released even at that time.

Under the hood, the device packs in a dated Snapdragon 845 chipset with only a single 6GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration on offer. The phone has an IP67 water and dust resistant rating.

Optics-wise the phone has two 12MP RBG sensors and three 12MP monochrome sensors on the back. On the front of the phone is a 20MP selfie shooter. The device has a 3,220mAh battery with 18W fast charging support and it is also Qi wireless compatible.
