Nokia 7 Plus gets Android Pie Beta update instead of stable release

by Jeet 0

Last month, when HMD Global rolled out its last Android Pie developer preview, the company’s CPO Juho Savikas proclaimed on Twitter that it would be the last one before the final stable version starts rolling out for Nokia 7 Plus.

The stable version of the Android Pie for the Nokia 7 Plus will be rolled out this month. But before releasing the stable version, the Finnish company has rolled out another Android Pie Developer Preview Beta update.

The new update, called Beta 4.1 (otherwise known as v3.190), comes with the September security patch along with a few other improvements. A non-removable At a Glance widget has been added to the homescreen similar to what we’ve seen on Pixel phones. Along with this, the aptX codec has also been enabled.

It also introduces Adaptive Battery feature which could improve the phone’s battery life. It intelligently kills off apps that you don’t use as much. Adaptive and optimized brightness is another 9.0 Pie feature that you can make use of as well as Predictive Application Actions.

For now, the users of Nokia 7 Plus will have to wait a little bit longer to receive the stable Android 9.0 Pie update to their devices. If there are no bugs and issue, we expect that the company could roll out the stable update by the end of this month, as promised.

The Android 9.0 Pie, which was available in beta phase since March this year, comes with a number of improvements, including new personalization features, battery-saving optimizations, and tools that help tracking time users spend on the phone.

It also addresses the latest trends in smartphone designs with revamped navigational controls. It introduces a new gesture-based navigation system. There are also a number of other gesture-based shortcuts. It is also said to be the most personalized version of Android yet.
