Nokia 6.1 gets Android 9.0 Pie this week

After the Nokia 7 Plus became the first device in HMD Global’s stable to receive the Android 9.0 Pie update earlier this year, another device is following suit.

The Nokia 6.1 will this week receive the latest version of Google’s mobile OS.

The phone features a 5.5 inch screen with a resolution of 1920×1080. A 3000mAh battery powers the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.

Nokia’s swift update rollouts are largely thanks to its Android One programme membership, which allows its devices to run stock Android and receive quick updates directly from Google.

Android 9.0 Pie has had a notably slow adoption rate. As of October, less than 1% of all Android phones run on the OS.
