Nokia 5.1 Plus may receive Android 9.0 Pie by the end of 2018
HMD Global confirmed early this month that four of its Nokia-branded smartphones will receive Android 9.0 Pie updates by the end of November. Two of them, Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 6.1 Plus will get the update in October, while the other two, Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco will be updated in November.

However, HMD's announcement does not include the Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 5.1 Plus, which is a bit weird considering that the Finnish company promised to release Android 9.0 Pie updates to all of its Nokia-branded phones to date.

Well, that's no longer the case since HMD Global's Juho Sarvikas recently stated that he would be surprised if the Nokia 5.1 Plus won't be updated to Android 9.0 Pie until the end of the year. It's true that we still don't know when exactly the phone will receive the highly-anticipated update, but at least we know for sure that it's coming.
