The Nokia 7 Plus was one of seven devices in the third-party Android beta program, and the phone picked up the Beta 4 build earlier in the month. HMD Global has mentioned that it is in the final stages of the beta program, with a stable build slated for the device in the coming weeks.
At a media event in New Delhi, HMD's Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas confirmed that the Nokia 7 Plus would be receiving the stable Android 9.0 Pie update in September, becoming the first Snapdragon 660 device to do so.
The rest of the devices in HMD's portfolio will receive the Pie update in the coming months, and based on the brand's track record, we should see the likes of the Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 6.1 pick up the Android 9.0 Pie stable build before the end of the year.
