Nokia 7 Series, Android 10 update & security updates

Written by Hassan Abbas

Nokia is one of the most reputable names in the business. As it doesn’t have the foothold in the market as it used to, but that hasn’t kept the company from manufacturing more than capable devices. While the likes of Samsung, Google, and OnePlus are vying to capture the upper end of the market segment. But Nokia has been busy populating the mid-range sector of the ever-expanding industry.

The 7-series is one of those midrange classics from the company. The devices don’t necessarily have the most jaw-dropping design or performance, but they surely provide ample value for your hard-earned money.

Four 7-Series Smartphones:

Currently, the company has four 7-series smartphones on the market:

  • the oldest of the lot, Nokia 7
  • its bigger sibling, Nokia 7 Plus
  • the middle-child, Nokia 7.1
  • and the all-powerful Nokia 7.2

All four devices are quite popular and quite capable in their own right in the smartphone community.

The Finnish company has been quite regular with software updates lately, making sure the devices continue to operate without a hitch. In this section, we’ll take a look at all the recent software updates — security patches, major Android OS releases, and bug fixes — rolled out for the four devices, helping you keep track of all the newly-released OTAs in one neat place.
