Nokia 5.1 Plus has started receiving its Android 9.0 Pie update. The device was originally launched back in August with Android 8.1 Oreo, and this is its first version update since the date. The Android 9.0 Pie update roll-out for the Nokia 5.1 Plus follows a similar roll-out for the China variant of the smartphone, the Nokia X5, earlier this week. The roll-out was announced by a senior HMD Global executive on Twitter, and the update should become available globally in batches.
Earlier Today, Juho Sarvikas (HMD Global Chief Product Officer) announced via Twitter that the Nokia 5.1 Plus has started receiving its Android 9.0 Pie update. A user has shared the change-log of the update, which has version number v2.09B. It brings standard Android Pie features like Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness, and more. It also brings the December 2018 Android security patch. The update is seen to be 1214.4MB in size.
Like other global variants of HMD Global’s Nokia phones, the Nokia 5.1 Plus is part of the Android One programme, which guarantees timely updates and a stock Android interface.
