Nokia 7.1 Android Q update

The Nokia 7 Plus took part in the early access program for Android P. We don’t expect the device to take part in the next OS beta program, but it’s likely the Nokia 7.1 may take part in the program, although we cannot guarantee this.

With the public developer preview of Android Q expected in Q2 2019 at the Google I/O event in May, this could be the time the Nokia 7.1 gets an update to Q. But this is just us speculating, so take it with a huge chunk of salt.
