HMD Global continues to stick to its promise of rolling out regular software updates for the Nokia smartphones. The latest smartphones to get the update are the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6. Read on to find out everything about the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 update.

Nokia 5, Nokia 6 update details

HMD Global is rolling out updates bigger than 300MB for both smartphones, Nokiamob reports. The Nokia 5 update is 396.1MB in size, while the Nokia 6 is 335.9MB in size. Despite the relatively large size, the updates only introduce the latest security patch.

Both smartphones get the July 2019 Android security patch, which essentially fixes a critical security vulnerability in Media framework. The vulnerability could enable a remote attacker using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process.

As is the norm, the updates are gradually rolling out. What this means is it could take some time to reach all units. Once the update is ready, users should receive an OTA notification. Alternatively, one can head over to the Settings menu to manually check for the update. The company recommends a stable Wi-Fi connection and enough charge in the devices before initiating the update process.
