The January 2020 security patch on the Nokia 7.2 primarily fixes a severe vulnerability in the device, which could have enabled a local malicious application to bypass user interaction requirements to gain access to additional permissions. The update also fixes an exploit that could have led to remote information exposure of the device.

The OTA update is rolling out in a staged manner, so it could take a while before reaching all Nokia 7.2 units gradually. Users will get a notification to download the update. Alternatively, one can head over to Settings to manually check for the update.

The report further noted that users could likely use the VPN trick to get the update faster. However, it is better to wait for the official rollout for any regional fixes and improvements. The company is likely to roll out this January 2020 security patch to more Nokia devices in the coming weeks.
