- The software update is 163MB in size
- HMD Global claims that it has fixed Wi-Fi compatibility issues
- Nokia 6 users get a new quick-action screenshot feature as well
HMD Global finally made the Nokia 6 available in India last month exclusively on Amazon. The smartphone is being sold currently through flash sales, and it is receiving an overwhelming response so far. For the first sale, over a million people had registered on Amazon India. Now, for all those early adopters in India, HMD Global is rolling out a software update bringing a host of improvements, fixes, and the August security patch as well.
The update is 163MB in size, and apart from the August security patch, it also brings along a fix for Wi-Fi compatibility issues that some users have been reporting about recently. The update also adds a new quick-action feature called Screen Capture. This feature allows the Nokia 6 user to take a screenshot by tapping the icon on the notification panel, as opposed to the traditional power and volume button combination. The software update also brings along overall stability improvements as well.
If you haven’t received a push notification, then head to Settings -> About Phone -> System Update-> and tap Check for Update. In other regions where the Nokia 6 was launched earlier, the August security patch was rolled out alongside the Google Pixel devices, cementing HMD Global’s efforts in software support for its users. In a statement to Gadgets 360, HMD Global had promised timely updates and software support for up to two years for its Android phones. HMD Global has also promised that the Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 smartphones will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo, and Android P next year, after it arrives.
