Like many other Nokia smartphones, the X7 is now receiving the latest November 2018 security update. Apart from security fixes, the OTA update brings camera image improvements and a new Night Scene mode. The update weights just 85mb.

In addition, many users who previously tried to update their smartphone to the latest update got themselves in a bit of a pickle. Several users ended up with the bricked Nokia X7. When the smartphone restarts to complete the updating process, the device forcefully goes to the EDL mode (Emergency Download Mode), also known as the Qualcomm 9008 mode. Unfortunately, the update for this issue has not arrived yet for the select few who might get their phones bricked. You’ll have to proceed with the latest update on your own risk.
