Nokia 7 Plus receives new update, brings security improvements
HMD Global, the current manufacturer of Nokia handsets, has a reputation for releasing timely software upgrades to its smartphones. It looks like the company isn't planning on resting on its laurels, as it recently rolled out a new patch to its Nokia 7 Plus model.

The update in question contains the Android Security patch for the month of October. It weighs in at 109.2 MB and, according to NPU, is currently being distributed to devices in India and Sri Lanka. Fixes to exposures found in the system, framework, and media framework are present here, including a mend for a critical vulnerability that could enable a proximate attacker to execute arbitrary code within the context of a privileged process.

Users in other markets have yet to report about the appearance of the update, but it's likely that a broader rollout should commence soon. You can check for it manually by going to Settings > Other > Software Update. As always, make sure that your phone is sufficiently charged and connected to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding with the patch.
