Nokia 6, Nokia 3.1 Plus and Nokia 2.1 get Android Pie update.


Nokia Mobile has rolled out the Android Pie update for their Nokia 6, Nokia 3.1 Plus and the budget Nokia 2.1 which is an Android Go device.

The update for Nokia 3.1 Plus, Nokia 6 and Nokia 2.1 is 1182.2 MB, 1806.6 MB and 825.6 MB in size respectively. The update size for Nokia 2.1 is relatively small when compared to the regular Android Pie update for the other two devices. This is because Nokia 2.1 is an Android GO smartphone and receives the Android Pie Go edition which is a bit lighter than the regular version of Android Pie. The update for all three devices also includes the February 2019 Android Security update.

Android Pie brings features like new gesture based navigation, adaptive battery and adaptive brightness. Nokia 6 has dedicated hardware keys so gesture based navigation will not be available for the device and Nokia 2.1 will also not have the gesture based navigation as it is not a part of Android Pie Go version which is designed to run on low end hardware and misses out on some features from regular android.

The updates are rolled out in phases and should take some time to be available for devices in all markets. You can manually check for the updates by going to Settings > System > System Updates.

By providing Android Pie update to older devices like the Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 which were launched with Android Nougat back in 2017, Nokia Mobile has kept its promise of Pure Secure and Up to Date android by providing two years of major OS updates to these device. Till now, Nokia Mobile has updated more than a dozen Nokia smartphones to Android Pie and there are few more left which will be updated soon.
