HMD Global has started updating its mid-ranger Nokia 6.2 to Android 10. The update was expected close to the Nokia 7.2, but some delays caused a delay which is almost a month long. Nevertheless, Android 10 for Nokia 6.2 is finally available. The update is over 1.54 GB, bumping the Android build version to v2.290. The update also brings the Android security patches for April 2020.

Nokia Mobile will make an announcement when the Wave 2 is available, so, stay tuned for that!
What’s new in Android 10 for Nokia 6.2?
Nokia phones run on the Android One platform, so, you only get what Google makes available for these phones. Hence, as such, the update is similar to what other Nokia phones have received. Here’s a look at the official update changelog:
- Dark mode – Take it easy on your eyes
- Smart reply – Save more time with recommended actions
- Gesture navigation – Get around with a swipe and pull
- Additional controls for privacy and location
- Google security patch (2020-03)
- VoWiFi Enabled (in the selected region and operator combinations)
If you are a user of Nokia 6.2 and belong to the countries in the initial wave, then you can check for updates. And if your country is not covered in the first wave, then you can play the VPN trick to try to fetch the update. There’s no other way to manually install the update file to the phone, except if you have an unlocked bootloader.
