Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Android 9 Pie

Android 9 Pie for the Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Nokia 6.1 are now rolling out to devices. The latest firmware will come with Google’s latest software enhancements that include support for  artificial intelligence and machine learning.

The update was previously available to members of Nokia’s Beta Labs program, but now it’s ready for primetime. Hopefully all the kinks (if any) have been worked out.


Some Android Pie key functionalities include:

  • App Actions – Helps get things done faster by predicting your next move and displaying the right action on your phone
  • Slices – Identifies relevant information on your favorite apps to make them more easily accessible when you need them
  • Adaptive Battery ​– Uses deep learning to understand usage patterns and prioritize battery power on important apps
  • New System Navigation​– Features a single home button that provides intelligent predictions and suggestions (user-enabled)

For those who have not yet received the update, you can check via the software update tab in your phone’s settings.
