Nokia 2 Pie update and other news: Verizon releases May patch, still no Pie

Nokia 2 Oreo update

Latest news

May 10, 2019: Verizon Wireless has a new update for the Nokia 2 V arriving as version 00WW_0_44D. This update installs a new security patch for May 2019, but still no Pie. The global variant of the Nokia 2 V got the update to Pie months ago, so we expect the U.S. variant to get this OS before the end of Q2 2019.

February 21, 2019: The Nokia 2.1 is receiving a stable update to Android 9 Pie. The update has just started rolling out and like any other OTA rollout, it is staggered, meaning some users will be notified to download it ahead of others. Besides Pie, the update installs a new Android security patch for February 2019.

Also receiving an OS upgrade is the original Nokia 2. No, it isn’t Pie, rather, the device has finally made the switch to stable Oreo 8.1 since the release of the beta in mid-2018. However, there is a catch. There’s no OTA, instead, you have to upgrade manually via this page, much like joining the beta program.

The reason for this is that Nokia feels the Nokia 2 may not offer optimum performance with an update to Oreo 8.1, but since the OS can still work just fine, those who want to switch can do so manually. However, they would still recommend staying on Nougat 7.1 that powers the device out of the box.
