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)

Sorry for the Russian text 🙂

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.
