Android 9 Pie update for Nokia 7 Plus enters 'final round of tests'
Given the company’s excellent track record on updates and software support in general, we also wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to see the Nokia 7.1 and 7.1 Plus running Android 9 Pie right off the bat.
Their predecessor, unveiled near the beginning of the year, is still powered by Android 8.1 Oreo, but not for long. In fact, the Nokia 7 Plus seemed destined to become the second non-Pixel device to receive the official Android P promotion just last month, following in the footsteps of the Essential Phone.
Ultimately, the OnePlus 6 managed to beat the 6-inch Android One handset to the punch, as the beta program inexplicably continued for the Nokia 7 Plus. Well, we now have an explanation for the delay, as well as a renewed promise of a (relatively) swift upgrade.
