01 November 2018 2

Update: November 1, 2018

Nokia 6.1 Plus Android 9.0 Pie update is now out of beta and available to everyone. Juho Sarvikas, the CPO of HMD Global, took it to Twitter and announced the availability of the same. He also included a short clip that demonstrates new features, including Adaptive Battery Saving, new Pie navigation gestures, and more.

Back in September, HMD Global removed the "Hide notch" feature from the Nokia 6.1 Plus and it was reported that Google requirements forced the company to do so. However, later, it was reported that the same isn't true. It could also be possible that the notch toggle feature is coming back with the Android 9.0 Pie update but we are yet to see it.

Last week, HMD Global revealed its plans about releasing Android 9 Pie upgrade for eligible smartphones. It has now confirmed that Android 9 Pie beta is now available for all Nokia 6.1 Plus users globally. The beta version is available via Nokia Beta Labs which means one will need to become a beta tester to receive the new version.

With the latest beta, users will be getting all the Android 9 Pie features like Digital Wellbeing, Slices, App Actions, Adaptive Brightness, and Adaptive Battery. The only thing to be kept in mind is that it is a beta release which means it is expected to have bugs and maybe performance issues as well. It means it is not recommended to install it on your primary device but if you do so, make sure to take backup of your data and be prepared to face any unwanted bugs or performance issues.

To give an overview of the Nokia 6.1 Plus, it sports a 5.8-inches Full HD+ TFT display with 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 636 processor coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. It supports memory expansion via microSD cards up to 400GB.
On the back panel, there is a dual camera setup featuring a 16-megapixel with f/2.0 aperture and a 5-megapixel. On the front, it has a 16-megapixel shooter. It runs stock Android 8.1 Oreo and is powered by a 3060mAh battery to keep its lights on.
