    Google just released it for their devices. How is Nokia supposed to update before Google does. Have patience it will come.

    May security updates?

    In Ireland/UK we did not get yet the April updates.

    We are stuck to February security patch and Android 8.0

    Really? I picked up the phone here in Sweden like 2 weeks ago and it updated to 8.1 directly with April security patch. I have the Android One version, but if you are in the UK/Ireland I would guess you do to.

    May security update? Please, I'm stuck (like a lot of people) to the february patch ¬_¬


    Nokia official statement : "Please note that the quoted release dates refer to the live releases for the first approved markets. In general, the release may take several days to reach all consumers within an approved market". (source : https://www.nokia.com/en_int/phones/security-updates)


    Several days? More like several weeks (for now)

     Hi Puneet, Could you please check if your Nokia 7 plus supports Vodafone India VoLTE. It is not working in my case while Jio is fine.

    Unfortunely, my area doesn't have volte services of Vodafone and so, I can't test it.

    I am literally shocked to see so many bugs in a stock Android device. It almost feels like a test product to me.

    Any kind of update at all would be encouraging.

    At the moment my 'Pure, Secure and up to date', Android One running Nokia 7 Plus is 1 Android version behind the latest and 3 months (1 whole yearly quarter) behind on security.

    Not quite so Secure and up to date it would seem eh HMD?

    It's also so full of bugs that it could at best be considered beta firmware!

    Nokia is much ahead in giving regular updates to android one devices compared to other vendors.

    Infact there updates are more bugfree if you compare with other vendors. Have patience and check the update history of nonkia. You will notice that most of the updates are almost out by 15 of each month.

    That is great, but my Nokia is on a 3 month old security patch. Not to mention that is still on Android 8.0.
    I hope it will get better after the first update
  •  In India it is available

  • It's disappointing, my Sony Xperia XZ had the May security update like a week ago, and here's my Nokia 7 Plus running Android One still haven't got the update...

    Also here in Italy still 8.0 Feb patch

    Have people stuck on 8.0 tried the old trick forcing the update by using a VPN?


    My phone updated to 8.1 directly as I booted it up, straight out of the box. I didn't insert my SIM Card until after I had done the initial setup.  I have the version released in the EU, dual SIM model, TA-1046.

    I'm in Sweden. Important to note though, I'm still on the April security update. But checking the dates it was released last month for the difference phones, I'm sure may security update vill be here soon.


    Pressing on April here gives a list and dates they actually released last month's for the difference devices

  • In you tube video latest release has been already deployed in China not in India
    In new patch face id camera UI dual volte support features has been embedded.

    The may security update is on its way. Since the phone is recently launched in india , we can expect some recent bug fixes in new update. Also there is very high chance of having dual 4g support and face unclock to be present in may update. This can be the reason why the security update for may is bit delayed.

    So, we're waiting for may update with new funcionality (i hope so) :-)

    That's what I think as well. They might be updating the camera app and fixing the issues some people have with Bluetooth. I rather they do that, then just rush out the security patch. But of course it could been a small update, before bug fix one. My guess is that it's more economical for them to do it all in one go.

    Yes, I agree with You.

    Hi Guys,


    I've created a Google doc (open to all) here for recording N7+ status:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MqEqkK4yXq12UB7u2wFs-iQ_1SYVAPvbJFwSGaAlX5w/edit#gid=0


    If you feel inclined - you can post your device info and OS/security patch level and locale.


    We may get to see some patterns?


    Cheers,

    Jason.
