The Nokia 7 may be sold only in China, though it still gets lots of love and support from fans and developers. The 2017 midranger switch to Oreo in May and is now already joining the Android Pie family, according to the official company account on Weibo. It brings plenty of new features, and a November 2018 security patch with some system improvements as well.
The update is version number 340C.B202, and is 1663 MB’s in size, though you will need 3332 MB’s of free storage so the package can work properly. If you bought the phone in China and you have received it, you have to go to Settings > System > System Update and when you are done, this is what you will get:
- Android Pie navigational buttons
- Qualcomm aptX HD Bluetooth support
- Dual VoLTE support
- Text magnifying glass
- Screen rotation button
- New camera UI
- New localized apps
The Nokia 7 is not on the Android One program since it’s in China where Google has limited capabilities. HMD Global had promised 3 years of security updates and 2 years of OS updates, which is even if it only applies for phones with stock Android. It’s quite refreshing to hear the Finnish company is looking out for it’s customers all over the world.
