Earlier this year, HMD Global confirmed that nearly all of its Nokia smartphones will be updated to the Android Pie OS. Sticking with that promise, the company has started rolling the Pie update to its Nokia 5.1 smartphone. As it has become the norm, the roll out of the Android Pie update for Nokia 5.1 was revealed by Juho Sarvikas.
HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer took to his Twitter account to make the announcement. The update is expected to roll out in a phased manner, so it may take a while to reach all Nokia 5.1 units out there. Alternatively, users can manually check whether the update is available by navigating to Settings -> About Phone -> System Updates.
