Android Pie updates are arriving on the Nokia 7 Plus

The Android 9.0 Pie update will today begin rolling out to users of the Nokia 7 Plus.

The news was confirmed by HMD Global’s chief product officer Juho Sarvikas.

In a tweet published on Friday, Sarvikas revealed — in a bit of a cringy post, tbh — that the Android One phablet will receive Google’s latest OS build.

This comes just a few weeks after Pie was officially announced by Google.

“We are doing a phased roll-out to ensure quality,” he added in a follow-up tweet.

“We will start with open markets and operators will follow shortly due to required approval process. Also note that we will roll out first 10% of install base and then expand but dont worry, you wont have to wait long,” he added.

It’s not yet clear when the Nokia 7 Plus will receive Android 9.0 Pie in South Africa, but be sure to stay close to a WiFi network in the coming weeks.
