Google rolled out the September 2019 security patch alongside its latest Android 10 update. While Android 10 has only reached a couple of devices, the latest security patch is slowly rolling out to a few devices. After Samsung, HMD Global is rolling out a Nokia 4.2 update with the security patch.
The Nokia 4.2 update is only incremental in nature, and doesn’t bring about huge changes. The update is about 60MB in size, and is rolling out in the US, NPU reports. There’s currently no word on when the update will reach other regions, including India. The fact that the Nokia 4.2 is getting the latest patch also means other Nokia devices will soon get it as well.
The Finnish company usually rolls out the update in phases, and it should reach all Nokia units in the coming days. Users will get a notification when the OTA update is ready for their devices. Alternatively, they can check manually for the update by heading over to the Settings menu -> System Updates -> Check for updates.
