The Pie update is of version 3.190 and comes with redefined notification system, modified setting menu, the latest September security patch, and some other tweaks and performance improvements to the device. The update has an approximate size of 1.4GB and Nokia 7 Plus users can get the update either via over-the-air update or get it downloaded and installed manually.

This Android Pie version that HMD Global is pushing to the Nokia 7 Plus is considered to be the final developer preview of the OS; a stable Android Pie is expected to be released later this month . Nokia had earlier mentioned when the Android P was officially released that it will release stable versions of the OS to its devices in September. So it is safe to say that Nokia is testing the OS with this Beta update before rolling out a stable version.

The Nokia 7 Plus was released in Q1 2018 alongside other Nokia flagship phones like the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 8 Sirocco. Nokia 7 Plus getting this Android Pie update confirms early reports that suggested that the device would be the first NokIa smartphone to get the Pie update from the Finnish OEM.

Some highlight features of the Android Pie OS include redesigned navigation keys and home launcher button, new media control panel design, AI-powered adaptive battery, dashboard for phone usage monitoring, adaptive brightness and many more.

The Nokia 7 Plus, on the other hand, has a 6.0-inch 1080 x 2160 pixels display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 on top, dual 12MP + 13MP sensors on the rear, 16MP front-facing camera, 4GB of RAM, 64GB built-in storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 system-on-chip under the hood.
