Nokia 6.1 won't be part of the Beta Labs, to be updated to Android 9 Pie soon
It happened with the Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Plus, but it's not going to happen with the standard Nokia 6.1 model. HMD's Juho Sarvikas confirmed his company will skip Beta Labs on Nokia 6.1 and that the final version of Android 9 Pie will be released soon.
There are a lot more Nokia-branded smartphones waiting to receive Android 9 Pie updates, but many of them will probably have to go through all the testing process before we can talk about a stable release.
In any case, if you're rocking a Nokia 6.1, you should ready your smartphone for a major Android 9 Pie update. Hopefully, “soon” truly means soon.
