Nokia 8.3 5G receives stable Android 12 with security fixes from April 2022

Nokia 8.3 5G was introduced back in September 2020. The phone comes packed with solid internal parts that make it a theft when considering its price tag. These include a 64 MP main camera, 120Hz refresh rate display, 1080 x 2400 FHD + display, a headphone jack and more. More importantly, however, the phone remains supported through software updates to this date. Nokia is currently rolling out the Android 12 update to Nokia 8.3 5G, which brings a privacy dashboard, conversation widgets, security patches and more to the device.

As pointed out by the user war 1 on Nokia Forums, Android 12 rolls out to Nokia 8.3 5G. The user is based in Finland, and the over-the-air (OTA) update has apparently not been rolled out in other regions yet. This update comes with build number V3.380 and packs April 2022 security fixes. Apart from that, it introduces a privacy dashboard, accessibility enhancements, Private Compute Core and conversation widgets.

It is common for Nokia phones to receive OTA updates in stages. If you live in Finland, you should be able to grab Android 12 on your phone right away. Otherwise, you will have to wait until the company starts rolling it out to more regions down the road. It’s hard to say when this will happen, but it should be relatively quick.

If Android 12 has landed on your phone, be sure to download it over a Wi-Fi network if you subscribe to a limited mobile data subscription. In addition, keep your Nokia 8.3 5G connected to a power source to ensure that it does not turn off during installation. If you do not see the update yet, you should probably wait a few days for it to reach your device.
