After months of running on the beta version, HMD Global has finally released a stable version of Android Pie for the Nokia 7 Plus.
The Nokia 7 Plus was one of the few non-Pixel devices that got support for Android P Beta. Even after the stable update was released, the Nokia 7 Plus kept receiving beta updates. Now, two months after the release of the stable update, owners of the Nokia 7 Plus will be happy to update to a stable version of Android Pie.
