The update also fixes an exploit within the system transmission arbitrary code. Also Read - Nokia 2.1 receiving new Android Pie build update with August security patch

The Nokia 2.1 OTA update is rolling out in stages. Hence, it may take a while before reaching all units. Users will get a notification to download the update. Alternatively, the update can also be checked by going to Settings > Software Update menu.

It is worth noting that the Nokia 2.1 is the only smartphone after the Nokia 9 PureView to receive this month’s latest security patch. The company hasn’t been as active as earlier this month in pushing the OTA updates. However, this could likely be an issue caused by the recent CoronaVirus outbreak, as HMD Global, otherwise, is one of the known manufacturers when it comes to rolling out updates.

The Nokia 2.1 features a 5.5-inch HD+ IPS display with a 1520×720 pixels resolution. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC.
