Nokia 3.1 Plus finally receiving Android Pie update in Kenya

HMD Global has finally delivered on its promise to update the Nokia 3.1 Plus to Android 9 Pie.

The update, which started rolling out globally last week, has finally hit the device in Kenya.

As per the official update roadmap released by HMD Global, the device ought to have received the update starting in January.

At just under 1.2GB, the update brings with it key Android Pie features like Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness and App Actions.

Another standout Pie feature, Digital Wellbeing, is also included but the app needs to be updated directly through the Google Play Store after installing the update for it to show up in the main settings app as it does on other devices.

Keen users will also notice the minor details like the addition of the screenshot button to the power menu.

The gesture interface is also available though not as it is on Android Pie builds on other devices that we have experienced.

The update also brings with it the February 2019 security patch.

HMD Global launched the Nokia 3.1 Plus in October last year. The device only started selling in Kenya towards the end of January 2019. At under Kshs 20,000, it remains one of the best ways to experience Android in (almost) its purest form locally.
