HMD Global has been quick to push out Android Pie for its Nokia smartphones. The updates keep flowing as an Android Pie update for the Nokia 5 has surfaced online. Unfortunately, this isn’t an official release of Android Pie for the Nokia 5 but a leaked version of an internal beta build. The leak was spotted on XDA Forum. The leakster also posted a hands-on video demonstrating how the phone was running on Android Pie. It wasn’t long before another user posted instruction for installing the Android Pie beta build.
The ROM was installed on the TA-1024 model of the device. However, supposedly it also works on the TA-1053 variant. Do bear in mind that it may involve unlocking the bootloader on your smartphone. Unlocking the bootloader will wipe the internal storage. The fact that an internal build of Android Pie has been leaked confirms the rumours of the Nokia 5 receiving an official version of Android Pie. The release of an official version of Android Pie for the Nokia 5 will make it the second major software update for the smartphone. The device, not too long ago, received the Android Oreo 8.1 update.
Android Pie 9.0 brings with it a ton of new features including performance improvements and battery optimizations. Android Pie will definitely instil a breath of fresh air into the Nokia 5 smartphone!
