The update arrives as software version V2.250 and comes with all the major new features that the latest Android version brings to the table. These include a system-wide dark mode, smart replies, gesture navigation, as well as additional controls for privacy and location. Along with the new features, the update comes with the March 2020 Android security patch as well.
Unsurprisingly, the update has so far been rolled out only to a small number of users. Since the update is being rolled out in stages, most Nokia 7.2 owners will have to wait slightly longer to receive it. To check for the update manually, tap Settings > System > Advanced > System update.
