Yesterday HMD finally brought Android 10 to its Nokia 3.1 handset and today the Nokia 5.1 is following in its footsteps with its own official build of Android 10. The phone came out in May of 2018 with Android 8.0 Oreo out the box so this is its second (and likely last) major OS update.

Like all Android 10 updates, this one brings full gesture-based navigation, dark mode, smart reply and device security tweaks. There’s also the September security patch and improved privacy and location controls. It’s just over 1.3GB in size.
The first wave of countries to get the new firmware includes Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Ukraine and Uzbekistan. For now only 10% of users will receive the update, a further 50% will get it by October 11 while the almost everyone else will have to wait until October 13. India will get the update last – by October 29.
