Nokia 7 Plus is now finally receiving the much-awaited Android 9.0 Pie software update. Within a couple of days of HMD Global having announced that Android P for the Nokia 7 Plus would be delayed, the company has gone ahead and announced that the rollout has begun for the mid-range handset. The Android Pie update on Nokia 7 Plus brings with it certain new features including a new Do Not Disturb mode, Adaptive Battery functionality, Adaptive Brightness, gesture-based navigation, a redesigned dashboard, and other features. File size of the version 3.22C update is around 1,471MB or 1.47GB.
The development was confirmed by Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global, in a tweet on Friday. “Everybody wants a piece of the Pie! We are starting roll out of Android 9 on #Nokia7Plus. Which of its delicious new features is your favorite? #Nokiamobile,” he said. With this, Nokia 7 Plus becomes one of the first few handsets to get the Android 9.0 Pie stable update after the Pixel range, Essential Phone, and OnePlus 6 received it in the last few weeks.
Users will be able to view the update in the form of a notification or can go into Settings to check for updates. Users in India are already seeing the update on their units, according to a user’s tweet.
