Nokia 6 Update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat Bring New Features and Bug Fixes


Nokia 6 was initially released in China back in January for the price of CNY 1699. The good news is that now this device is getting the Android 7.1.1 update. In February, HDM Global reported that there was a global rollout for Nokia 6, but also for the new Nokia 3310, Nokia 3 and Nokia 5.

All of these devices should get the global update until the end of the second quarter of 2017. However, before the global upgrade, Nokia 6 will get the new OS locally, only in China, with the help of an OTA update. Currently, this device runs on the Android 7.0 Nougat OS.

Update Details

The update file weighs around 369 MB and it wears the name 00CN_3_179. It brings users some new features, including shortcut support for the home screen, a new set of updated emojis, some fixes for bugs and many others. But perhaps the most important feature is the fact that it supports 4G/3G dual-SIM dual-standby.
