It follows in the footsteps of the Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 6.1, and Nokia 7 Plus to eventually become the company’s fourth smartphone to get the stable Android Pie update.

The development has been announced by HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas at a tweet on Tuesday. He also mentioned that the rollout may be slow to Nokia 7.1 users. “Note , as always, we’ve got a phased rollout to ensure we provide you the highest quality and experience – some markets with longer technical acceptance cycles will follow as soon as possible”
