As per a report from PiunikaWeb, the update is arriving as version 5.31D and is rolling out to Nokia 9 PureView users across the globe. If you own a Nokia 9 PureView and have not received an update notification yet, you can try looking for the update manually by tapping Settings > System > Advanced > System updates > Update.
The next Nokia smartphone to receive the Android 10 update will be the Nokia 7.1. Since HMD Global has already confirmed that the phone will receive the update before the end of 2019, it could begin rolling out within the next few days.
Owners of other Nokia smartphones like the Nokia 6.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, and Nokia 7 Plus will have to wait until next month to get the stable Android 10 update. The Nokia 7.2 and 6.2, on the other hand, are slated to be updated to Android 10 sometime in Q1 2020.
The Nokia 9 is now available for as low as $485, which makes it more affordable than most other 2019 flagship phones. Featuring a five-camera array on the back, the Nokia 9 PureView is more of a photography-focused smartphone. Apart from the unique camera array, the phone offers a durable design, 5.99-inch Quad HD pOLED display, and is part of the Android One program.
