Nokia 6, Nokia 5 and Nokia 3 will receive monthly security updates


Nokia's 2017 line-up of Android smartphones (including the Nokia 6, Nokia 5, and Nokia 3) will be released in the coming months in various markets around the globe. All three new handsets run stock Android 7 Nougat out of the box, and, as previously announced, they're going to receive regular software updates. Now, Nokia Mobile went further to confirm that the phones will also get "monthly" security updates. This way, the handsets should be as secure (software-wise) as Google's Pixel and Nexus phones, Samsung's Galaxies, and all the other devices that are getting monthly security patches.

Nokia didn't say for how long its new handsets will receive updates. Usually, Android smartphones get major updates for 2 years after launch, but that's not always true when it comes to cheap devices. Thus, while we do expect the Nokia 6 to get major Android updates until 2019, we're not so sure about the Nokia 5 and Nokia 3.

In case you're wondering, right now, there's no word on whether or not these new Nokia smartphones will be officially released in North America. Nevertheless, until we find out more about this, you can take a closer look at the phones by checking out our Nokia 6 hands-on, Nokia 5 hands-on, and Nokia 3 hands-on.
