HMD Global has been hard at work updating its phones to Android Pie. Just as the Android One versions of its phones have been getting the updates, so also have the Chinese versions. Today, it is the turn of the Nokia 7 to get its own slice of Android Pie in China.
The update comes a few days after the Nokia 6 (2018) also received the update in China. Other than Android Pie features, the update brings other new features to the phone such as support for Dual-SIM Dual-VoLTE, support for HD calls, and an optimized battery management system. It also brings support for aptX and aptX HD for Bluetooth audio, a redesigned camera UI and app store.
The Nokia 7 was released in 2017. It has a 5.2-inch 1080p display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and Gorilla Glass 3 on top. It is powered by the Snapdragon 630 processor and comes with 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
A single 16MP f/1.8 camera with Zeiss optics sits on its back and a 5MP f/2.0 camera is in front for selfies. It also has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, and Bluetooth 5.0. It packs a 3000mAh battery with support for 18W fast-charging.
When it launched, the phone ran Android 7.1 out of the box. It was updated to Android Oreo and has now received an update to Android 9 Pie.
