Android 9 Pie update

Device Current OS Android Pie update
Nokia 5 Android 8.1 Expected in Q1 2019

Nokia 5.1 Plus Android 8.1 Expected in Q1 2019

Nokia 5 was launched with near stock Android (Nougat) out-of-the-box. Nokia didn’t overlay it with a heavy custom skin, meaning that the company will always have a lighter exercise when it comes to upgrading the software to a new version. It’s, for this reason, the Oreo rollout to the Nokia 5 begun in late 2017, albeit in beta, and it’s for the same reason, once again, that we think Android Pie will arrive on the Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 5.1 Plus by the end of 2018 or in early 2019.

In fact, Nokia says the Pie update for the Nokia 5 is currently available and that since the update will generally be rolled out in phases, the Nokia 5, Nokia 5.1 and Nokia 5.1 Plus users may have to watch as those on the Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco receive the update before they can get the nod, too.

We don’t have an exact release date for Nokia 5 Android Pie update, but we do have details of what to expect when the OS arrives in the link below.
