After getting the first-ever official stable Android 10 update in the Nokia family, the Nokia 8.1 November 2019 Security Patch is now available. Though the security patch version is one-month outdated, the device users will take this for granted. The firmware update is rolling via OTA in a staged way, so the users will get a broader roll-out very soon globally.
Most of the Nokia 8.1 users should know that the Android One program is primarily focused on delivering faster and frequent software updates for a couple of years. The OTA update contains only the November 2019 Android Security Patch Level and nothing else. So, it’s a very minor update in terms of the changelog and even file size.
