Android 9 Pie update
- Expected release date: Q4 2018
|Device||Current OS||Android 9 Pie update|
|Nokia 6||Android 8.1||Expected in Q1 2019|
|Nokia 6.1||Android 8.1||Expected in Q4 2018|
|Nokia 6.1 Plus||Android 8.1||Expected in Q4 2018|
Nokia 6 comes preinstalled with stock Android 7.1.1 Nougat and has since been upgraded to Android 8.1 Oreo, the same OS that powers the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 6.1 Plus out of the box. The trio is eligible for Android Pie update, but it’s unlikely that all three will be updated to Pie at the same time. If anything, the rollout could begin with the newer models before arriving on the OG Nokia 6, probably before the end of the year or in early 2019.

With the update to Android Pie, the Nokia 6 will be receiving its second and probably last major OS upgrade, but for the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 6.1 Plus, it’s only the beginning. According to the official Nokia Twitter account, the Pie update for the Nokia 6 is “currently available” for download, but since the company will be rolling out the OS in phases, it’s likely that the update may have to wait for a few weeks before commencing. During this time, Nokia will be updating its higher-end devices like Nokia 8, Nokia 8 Sirocco, and Nokia 7 Plus.
Hi, the Android Pie is currently available for the Nokia 3, 5, 6 and 8, roll-out will be phased as usual to secure quality delivery.
