Highlights
  • Nokia 7.1 has been spotted on Geekbench with Android 9.0 Pie
  • HMD Global is set to bring the latest update next month
  • Nokia 7 Plus has already received Android Pie update

Nokia 7.1, which was launched earlier this month with Android Oreo, has now been spotted on Geekbench with Android 9.0 Pie. Nokia brand licensee HMD Global at its launch event in London promised that the Nokia 7.1 will receive Android Pie sometime next month and the latest development suggests that the update is on track. The Nokia 7.1 is notably a part of Google's Android One programme that is designed to provide at least two major updates for participating models.

A Geekbench listing shows a Nokia 7.1 model with Android 9.0. This suggests that HMD Global is testing an Android Pie update for the latest Nokia smartphone. The Finnish company has already promised to push the Android Pie update to the Nokia 7.1. The hardware specifications shown on the Geekbench listing are notably identical to the original Nokia 7.1, which means it isn't any other handset.

Apart from confirming the debut of Android Pie on the Nokia 7.1, HMD Global recently assured to bring the latest experience to the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 6.1 Plus later this month. The company is also set to bring the Pie update to the Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco next month. Additionally, the company recently rolled out the final Android Pie update to the Nokia 7 Plus months after bringing some Android Pie Developer Preview builds.
