The best gifts for Android users
HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas took to Twitter today with the reveal. Starting today, Nokia 7 Plus owners can expect a final, stable update to Google’s latest version of Android. As with any other Android One device, that means a clean version of the OS which is very similar to what you might find on a Pixel device.
A brief video about Pie on the Nokia 7 Plus that Sarvikas tweeted highlights new features. Those include the enhanced Do Not Disturb mode, Digital Wellbeing features, Adaptive Battery and Brightness, and the new gesture navigation option. Apparently, a new camera update is also included with Google Lens integration.
Pie will be rolling out to the Nokia 7 Plus as part of a “phased rollout.” This means that not everyone is going to get it right away, similar to a typical Google rollout. Sarvikas mentions that 10% of users will see the update at first, with things expanding shortly after.
We are doing a phased roll-out to ensure quality. We will start with open markets and operators will follow shortly due to required approval process. Also note that we will roll out first 10% of install base and then expand but dont worry, you wont have to wait long
