Though it’s a bit late because last month the company promised to bring the update in January last. The company came with the Android 9 Pie roadmap for a series of Nokia smartphones including the Nokia 7.1/7 Plus, Nokia 6.1/6.1 Plus, and 5.1 Plus.

The Nokia 3.1 Plus is an Android One smartphone launched in India in October 2018. It’s a bigger variant of the Nokia 3.1 featuring a bigger 6-inch HD+ display. It runs MediaTek’s Helio P22 SoC and came with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.

The Android Pie update is rolling out in phases so it might take some time to reach all regions and users. You can wait for the update to arrive.
