Earlier this month Google officially began rolling out the latest update, the #August #Security Patch, to its latest line-up of Pixel and #Nexus smartphones. It seems like the next group of smartphones to receive the update belong to the Nokia family. If reports are true then the latest August Security Patch has officially been deployed for Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 smartphones.

Android Police reported that the smartphones started receiving the update on August 9th. Those who are interested in installing the latest update, are required to check their ‘Setting’ options out, and see if it is available for them. The latest August Security Patch is available for installation, and reportedly carries all the fixes for any possible security flaws that may have existed in the Android 7.1.1 Nougat operating system update.

Given the track record of Nokia, it certainly doesn’t come across as surprising that the Finnish technology giant decided to roll out their latest bunch of security patches so soon. They have always been the first ones to grab at any possible software fixes or updates that their leading smartphones can optimize. Furthermore, as this is probably the first year that HMD Global-backed Nokia has intentionally forayed into the smartphone market with the latest bunch of innovations, it is justified that the company wants to be able to deliver a quality experience to its users, regardless of what may come their way.

Android O update

What was surprising is that Google is on time with its security patches update this time. The search-giant usually deploys its software security patches slightly later than expected.

However, it seems that the company seems to be keeping its software updates on track, especially because the company is also expected to officially roll out its Android O update, and probably wants to get done with this procedure as soon as possible.

Security Patch size

The latest August Security Patch is reportedly 120MB large in size. Interested users are advised to ensure that their smartphones are fully charged even though the update will hardly take up a lot of time to download. Google Pixel and Nexus users particularly had a difficult time installing the update especially because the smartphones were running on mobile data. Therefore, users have received special instructions regarding this matter and to have a successful installation, it is important that they ensure that their smartphones are running on Wi-Fi.
