Nokia G10 starts receiving Android 13 OS update

Nokia G10 in Night

Not too long ago, Nokia Mobile released Android 13 for the Nokia G20 (link). Now the Nokia G10 model has started receiving the next major OS update. This update could be the last for the phone, which is equipped with the MediaTek MT6762G Helio G25, manufactured in a 12 nm process. The phone was launched with Android 11 in 2021, and Nokia Mobile has promised to provide it with OS updates for two years and monthly security patches for another year.

The update should be available in major markets. It is 1.83 GB in size and includes the March security patch. So, to feel the latest Android on your G10, go to Settings, then Security, and finally Security Update to quickly check if the Android 13 is available for your device.

Abdulla did a nice video summing the features he likes (or dislikes) on Android 13, so do check out the video (link to the post), or read below the common things we both like about Android 13:

  1. The performance of the Nokia XR20 and X20 has improved a lot after the update. Everything seems to run much smoother, and I can say the same for the G50.
  2. Better optimization of notifications – I always mute my phone, as calls and text messages are the only things I get notified about on a smartwatch while my phone is in a hip pocket.
  3. Abdulla likes the improved colours and icons of the theme, I am not a fan of it as many apps I have on the main display are not yet adapted to the new look.
  4. Not a huge improvement, but worth mentioning is the photo privacy feature which means a specific app can access the photos you want to share with it, which is usually the gallery, so no big deal. However, if you are a perv, you are better off not sharing some photos with apps.
  5. The best new feature that both Abdulla and I like is the new Camera 2.0 app introduced with the Nokia X30 5G. However, do not expect all the fancy algorithms that the Nokia X30 has for night mode or other apps
  6. The last feature that I never use, but could be useful on smartphones with large displays like the G50 or XR30, is the one-handed mode where you control everything with the tip of your index finger. This option already existed in the Lumia series, but now it has made its debut in Android and is a welcome feature.
