HMD Global has to this date updated up to seven devices to Android 9 Pie and is expected to release the update to a few more this Q1 2019. By the end of last year, Nokia 3.1 was surfaced on Geekbench running Android 9 Pie and last week, we came across the Nokia 6 on the same platform running Pie either. Now, we have found again Nokia 3.1 Plus running on the same Android 9 Pie on Geekbench showing the similar scores. in single core, it scores 833 while multi-core scores are 3516.
For sure, HMD is testing Pie on the three devices ahead of the official rollout, probably this Q1 or in early Q2 2019. As a reminder, the listing on Geekbench doesn’t mean Pie is ready for the Nokia 3.1 Plus, but it does tell us the wait is nearing the end. It may take anything between several weeks and months before the official rollout begins.
The Nokia 3.1 Plus comes preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo and thus supports Google Project Treble out of the box. This should help speed up the software development process and further cut down on the wait time.
