HMD Global Nokia is one of the few smartphone brands to focus on software updates from day one. Regardless of the price arm, the smartphone maker introduces new updates to its devices from time to time. In fact, the company is still promoting maintenance updates on the 2018 device called the Nokia 7 Plus. Earlier today, Nokia began sowing a new update that brings a new security patch and fixes many bugs along the way.
The new firmware update bears the model number 00WW_4_16B. In addition to debugging, the update also brings the September 1, 2020 security patch. As expected, the device is still running Android 10. As a reminder, the device was originally released with Android Oreo unpacked. Since then, it is constantly updated thanks to the Android One program.
Nokia 7 Plus may not be running Android 11
At the time of writing, there is no information on whether the device will receive Android 11 in the near future. Given that the device has already received the two major upgrades, the chances for the third become quite bleak. In fact, the company recent tweet talks about Android 11 and the two-year promise of operating system upgrades. It is also worth noting that the Nokia 7 Plus has now received about 40 software updates since 2 September. Of course, this includes patches, bug fixes, and important updates as well.
Since the Nokia brand recovery, HMD Global has focused on software updates and lived up to its promise. While more companies are now jumping to offer the latest software, it is safe to say that Nokia was one of them when no one else focused on updates.
More incoming Nokia devices!
In addition to taking care of software upgrades, HMD Global seems to be working on a range of new devices for its consumers. Recently, the smartphone maker released the Nokia 2.4 and 3.4 smartphones along with the Nokia 8.3 5G. A few days ago, we saw high resolution images from the upcoming Nokia 7.3 device. As expected, the device arrives with a hole punch on the left with curved rear edges and a circular camera unit just above the fingerprint sensor. Earlier this week, we also saw a new unknown Nokia phone with model number TA-1354 in NBTC certification in Thailand.
