Nokia 6.1 Plus Now Receiving Stable Android Pie Update
At this point, it comes as no surprise that Nokia is easily one of the best in the industry when it comes to updating their hardware. One of the reasons why Nokia devices receive updates before competitors is because many of their phones are part of the Android One program. They offer a pure, Stock Android experience and updates are delivered regularly. The company released Android Pie developer previews for the Nokia 7 Plus, before proceeding to release stable Android Pie for both the Nokia 7 Plus and the Nokia 6.1 in the weeks after its release. The company has even promised Android Pie update for the entirety of Nokia/HMD’s device lineup, even the old and low-cost ones. Today another Nokia phone can join the list of Pie-supported devices, as a stable update is rolling out to the Nokia 6.1 Plus.

The announcement was made by Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer of HMD Global, on Twitter. The device already had an open Android Pie beta a few weeks ago, so it was only a matter of time before a stable build was released en masse. The update also comes with October security patches, as well as the full set of Android Pie features, including the new Recents menu, screen gestures, Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness, and more. The update is now rolling out over-the-air to Nokia 6.1 Plus users around the globe. It weighs in at around 1349.5 MB and should hit your device shortly. You may have to wait up to a week, depending on where you live as the rollout is incremental.
