Chief Product Officer of HMD Global Juho Sarvikas promised to bring Android 9.0 Pie to the Nokia 7 Plus, telling users that the celebrated update will hit devices this month, and so indeed it is. After a few hurdles along the way, the software upgrade has finally rolled out to users.

The new update brings a lot of new features on the Nokia 7 Plus including an improved Do Not Disturb mode as well as Google’s Digital WellBeing dashboard. There’s also the new Adaptive Battery which optimizes battery in addition to Adaptive Brightness.

It also features the new Android Pie user interface together with the new gestures navigation or some would call it the Android Pill/Tic-Tac button. App Actions is also in where users would have a link from the App drawer on frequently used apps or tasks, a new notification shade and many more improvements under the hood.

One of the neat new additions to the update is the improvements on the camera app. It also sport a new UI for the app with Google lens and Google motion integration built-in. And before we forgot, Nokia also added AR stickers to it camera app but as of now, it only has a few stickers to choose from, so we are looking to have this feature filled with more over time.

The Android 9.0 Pie update for the Nokia 7 Plus weighs around 1.4GB together the latest September 2019 security patch. Nokia 7 Plus users were eagerly waiting for this update many of them have updated soon after Nokia rolled it out yesterday evening. For some who still haven’t got the update may check their devices from the Settings menu.

Do note though that the update comes huge and that it requires a large amount of anyone’s data allocation so it is best to connect through a Wi-Fi network with stable internet connection.
