Of the handsets that HMD Global launched at the Mobile World Congress 2018, the Nokia 7 Plus has remained to be the most talked about all but for good reasons. Usually, companies prioritize their high-end offerings when it comes to software updates, but HMD did the unusual by including the Nokia 7 Plus, a midranger, in the beta testing program for Android P and not even thinking about the Nokia 8 or the superior Nokia 8 Sirocco.

This, coupled with timely software updates and the fact that the phone runs a clean version of Android make up for a good story and indeed, the Nokia 7 Plus is continuing to ice cake with regular software updates.
