A lot of exciting things are happening on the tech front this week. First and foremost, Nokia 6 smartphones have finally started receiving the Android 7.1.1 Nougat users have been expecting. As you might know, the smartphone launched a few months ago with Android 7.0 Nougat inbuilt from the start, and now the new update weighs in at about 2GB and will bring Nokia 6 devices up to speed.
The update is quite heavy, so if you own a Nokia 6, make sure you have enough space to download and install it in order to avoid issues. It already started rolling out in China, and is headed for Taiwan and Hong Kong next. The new version of Google’s beloved OS also comes with important security fixes for Nokia 6 devices.
And speaking of security fixes, three Samsung Galaxy devices are getting a security patch this week. We’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, and the Note 5 as well. The new Android patch aims to improve the devices’ overall security and stability, which is always good news. The S7 and S7 Edge updates are quite hefty, clocking in at 169.79MB and 176.49MB respectively. They come under build numbers SM-G930FD for the S7 and SM-G935FD for the S7 Edge. The Note 5 patch is considerably lighter in size, with just 14MB of data.
We’re glad to see Google working so hard on keeping all Android devices up to speed and secure in this increasingly hacking-prone age. Unfortunately, new malware and other glitches are found constantly, so it’s good to see a company that works so hard on fixing them as soon as the user reports start rolling in. Keep up the good work, Google!
