Android 9 Pie was released six months ago, and flagship phones already got it. We are looking at Samsung and Huawei, but also Xiaomi, OnePlus and more. Now HMD Global’s Nokia 3.1 Plus users are also enjoying the new OS, getting their hands on the Pie.
The best thing about HMD Global’s phones is that they were already released with the Android One platform, which means faster operating system updates compared to other smartphones that don’t come with Android One. Android 9 Pie has already rolled out to many phones from HMD Global, and their list of phones that are getting the latest OS is pretty big.
In an official update from the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, Juho Sarvikas, we learn that the Nokia 3.1. Plus is getting Android 9 Pie:
“The wait is over! Get ready to feast on a sweeter smartphone experience with Android 9 Pie on Nokia 3.1 Plus. Nokia smartphones get smarter with time #GetSmart #Nokiamobile”
