Nokia 2 V Software update begins rolling officially from the Verizon. The 2 V is a re-branding of the Nokia 2.1. It is exclusive to tele-carrier Verizon and basically targets the US market. Though the branding is different the machine is all the same. You guessed it right..! It is an Android Go based phone that runs the slimmed-down version of Android 8.1 Oreo. It uses lightweight Go Apps which are pre-installed on it.
Talking of the new software, Verizon Nokia 2 V is now receiving January 2019 security patch update over-the-air. As we normally see with tele-carriers, it is kind of a late update for the device. We are already in March of 2019, and every month new security vulnerabilities are creeping up. So, the update cycle should keep up with Google. Anyways, the OTA for Nokia 2 V is knocking into devices with software version 00WW_1_13A. It’s based on Android v8.1 Oreo. Post this update your device performance will improve.
Also, we have set-up a Nokia 2 V Software Update timeline. So, if you stay tuned to us and want to get all the latest updates about your Nokia 2 V, then you can find them in one place.

The OTA update should find its way into your devices automatically. However, if you are not seeing the update, you can manually look for it and capture if it’s available. First, recharge your battery above 50%. Then use a good Wi-Fi network and go to the device Settings. In there go to System Update > Check for the updates. If the 00WW_1_13A update is available, then download and install it.
Nokia 2V marked its presence around the last quarter of 2018 and finally released in early 2019. It packs all the specs of its global sibling Nokia 2.1. HMD Global has always been punctual with software updates so we expect Verizon to keep up with that. The Nokia 2 V is a promising device aiming to perform well with limited hardware coupled up with the latest software. Routine software support will definitely add icing on the cake. So, install the new Nokia 2 V software update and enjoy it.
