At the launch event for the Nokia 6.1 Plus, HMD Global announced that their premium midranger, the Nokia 7 Plus, will get the latest Android 9 Pie update in September. The 7 Plus is presently on the Android 8.1 Oreo platform for stable users; however, Android beta testers have been enjoying several beta builds of Android Pie over the past few months. The handset is currently running on the Beta 4 build of Android P and will be updated to the stable build of Android Pie in the coming weeks.
The Nokia 7 Plus is built around Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 platform and falls under the Android One programme, which ensures timely software updates from Google. At close to Rs 25,000, the 7 Plus has set the benchmark for midrange Android devices and has encouraged similarly priced rivals from other manufacturers with a stock Android OS.
