Finnish company HMD Global, that manufactures and sells Nokia smartphones, has rolled out the Android Pie 9.0 operating system (OS) for the Nokia 7 Plus smartphone.

Notably, this is the first device from the HMD stable to get Android Pie which is the ninth major update and the 16th version of the Android OS.



Nokia 7 Plus will be the first non-Pixel phone to get the Digital Wellbeing features.

“The update is happening in a phased rollout and it will soon expand beyond the first 10 per cent install base. The Nokia 7 Plus is a budget $400 Android phone that’s not officially available in the US but mainly targeted toward Asia and India,” The Verge reported late on Friday.

However, the Nokia 6.1 that was launched in August and is available in the US is expected to get the update soon.

“What’s notable is that the Nokia 7 Plus will be the first non-Pixel phone to get the Digital Wellbeing features, which shows a dashboard of your phone habits and tracks app time usage,” the report added.


This is the first device from the HMD stable to get Android Pie which is the ninth major update and the 16th version of the Android OS.

Android Pie brings a range of useful new features such as adaptive battery, tweaked navigation and improved notifications.

According to Faisal Kawoosa, founder and chief analyst, Techarc, as digital becomes mainstream and brands increase their D2C (direct-to-consumer) engagements, they need to proactively police the digital space to hunt for any infringement cases.
