Get Android Pie OTA Update on Nokia 7.1

Nokia devices have been receiving a lot of Android Pie updates lately. The Nokia 6.1 has just received Android Pie and now the Nokia 7.1 is joining the list. Don’t expect miracles overnight though! I want you to keep in mind that this is a phased rollout, so it will not be available on all handsets at the start. It’s actually more of a waiting matter.

However, if you don’t want to wait, you can download the OTA manually via the link below. And rest assured that the procedure is here detailed too. If you are undecided, remember that the update brings the usual array of Pie goodies, such as Adaptive Battery, Slices, Adaptive Brightness, and so on.

Since this is an Android One device, Nokia keeps the software pretty clean, so it’s a joy to have on your device! Don’t say No to that, but better get ready. For the operation to work, you must have ADB and Fastboot installed on your PC.

Even more, always play safe: you should back up your important data and verify that your Nokia 7.1 has a battery percentage of more than 70%. A simple mistake such as this one could lead to damaging your device for good. Just don’t say that you haven’t been warned!
