How to get the The Nokia 7 Plus Android Pie update

Alex Kidman 12 October 2018 NEWS

Nokia's grabbed the prize of being the first non-Google phone to update to Android 9 down under.

We were quite impressed with the Nokia 7 Plus when we reviewed it, praising it for its large display, solid mid-range performance, good battery life and clean Android interface. That's because, like most of the rest of Nokia's 2018 handsets, it's part of the Android One program, which also means that (in theory) it should be fast-tracked for Android upgrades when they became available.

And that day is today, with HMD Global – the company that holds the rights to produce Android phones under Nokia branding – announcing that the Android 9.0 ("Pie") upgrade for the Nokia 7 Plus is available today. Notably, it's only the second Android phone in Australia to jump over to Android Pie, after the Google Pixel family. It's the first non-Google phone to do so.

How do I upgrade my Nokia 7 Plus to Android Pie?

The upgrade process for the Nokia 7 Plus should be simple enough. Open up the Settings app and head to Software Upgrades. Make sure you're connected to Wi-Fi, as the update is a large one, and it should start downloading. Once that's done, a quick reboot and upgrade process should see you enjoying all that rich Android Pie goodness on your Nokia 7 Plus.
