Today HMD Global has announced the start of the rollout of the Android 10 update for the Nokia 7.2. This phone was released last September, running Android 9 Pie.
Although it, like most other Nokias, is part of the Android One program, which in theory should ensure quick Android OS upgrades, obviously that’s not working out as it should. Android 10 has already been out for more than six months at this point, and countless other handsets that aren’t part of Android One have been updated to this version.
Anyway, let’s call it “better late than never”. HMD’s rollouts have apparently been delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and yet the company only announced the issues earlier this month.
The Android 10 update for the Nokia 7.2 has the software version 2.250, and since this is a nearly stock build, you pretty much get everything Google packed into Android 10 last year. The system-wide dark theme, Smart reply, full screen gesture navigation, additional controls for privacy and location, that sort of thing. You’ll also have the March 2020 security patch.
As usual the rollout is staged, so it might take a few days for your particular Nokia 7.2 unit to hit you wth the update notification. In the meantime, if you’re the impatient type, you could just go to Settings and manually check. Can’t hurt to try.
