Nokia 7.1 now receiving Android Pie says HMD Global
- HMD Global is rolling out Android Pie to the Nokia 7.1.
- The rollout won’t land in all regions simultaneously and may take some weeks to complete.
HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas has announced the Android Pie rollout to the Nokia 7.1. Sarvikas mentioned the rollout in a tweet from his personal Twitter account earlier today.
The tweet was accompanied by a short video, though it only gave us a single image of the new software to look at. Sarvikas followed up on this to note that, as always, the rollout would occur in stages; some markets may take longer to receive it than others.

Android Pie introduces gesture controls (you can see the new pill-shaped icon at the bottom of the handset in the video), Adaptive Brightness and Adaptive Battery modes, and more. You can read more about it in our full Android 9.0 review.
Sarvikas didn’t deliver any other details about the specific Nokia 7.1 update, but did respond to one comment regarding HMD’s 2017 lineup to say the update would be rolled out “as fast as possible.”
