HMD Global has rolled out the latest May 2019 Android security update for two Nokia smartphones. A fresh report claims that both the Nokia 8 and Nokia 6 have started receiving the latest security update. The Nokia 8 update is 74.5 MB in size, while the Nokia 6 update is about 334.2 MB. The update will hit the handsets gradually, and one can check it manually by heading over to Settings -> system updates.
The update doesn’t bring any significant change and only offers the May Android Security patch. One of the issues that this update resolves is a critical security vulnerability in Media framework that could enable a remote attacker “using a specially crafted file to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process,” NPU reports.
