Nokia 7 Plus gets LTE support for second SIM in India

Last week, we reported that Nokia 7 Plus would soon get LTE support for second SIM. Well now, HMD Global has started rolling out an update that brings in LTE support for second SIM on Nokia 7 Plus.


The Nokia 7 Plus that was announced back in February at MWC and launched in India earlier last month is powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC. And, this chip comes with support for LTE on both SIMs. However, despite of that, the Nokia 7 Plus supported LTE only on the first SIM. But not anymore, as HMD Global is rolling out a new update with version V2.22A that brings in LTE support for second SIM as well.


This update is based on Android 8.1 Oreo and is currently rolling out in India. However, it should soon roll-out in other regions as well to enable LTE on second SIM. Having said that, this update is more than 445 MB in size and brings in May security patch in addition to UI enhancements and improvements to system stability.

If you are a Nokia 7 Plus user living in India, you should soon get an update notification, but if you don’t, you can check for the update manually by heading over to the Settings menu.
