Nokia 7 plus is one of the best creations from the house of HMD Global. The smartphone has won many hearts, offering a great value in the higher mid-range segment. The device so loved by the consumers across the globe has also got some love from EISA. The Nokia 7 plus is awarded as the “Best Consumer Smartphone” for the year 2018-2019.
For the unaware, EISA stands for “Expert Image and Sound Association”. NokiaMob went a little bit into the history to remind us that the last Nokia smartphone which bagged an EISA award was the the camera powerhouse Nokia 808 Pureview. The Nokia 808 grabbed the award as “Mobile Photo Achievement” back in 2012.
Nokia Mobile has pushed the last developer preview release of Android P (Pie) to the Nokia 7 plus users. If you are already enrolled to the beta program, then you will receive the update notification shortly. If you have used the manual way to update, then you can download the new image and sideload on your Nokia 7 plus.
The new developer preview image brings the Android P DP4 with version V3.150. The security patch is still at July. Juho Sarvikas confirmed the release on Twitter.
Do note that if you upgrade via OTA then your user data will be automatically wiped, even if you are already running Android P DP3. There’s another warning to not switch the way you receive Android P DP updates.
The stable release should be around the corner. However, it will still take some-time to perfect. So, I expect stable Android Pie releasing to Nokia 7 plus users towards the end of August, along with the August security patch. For now, the news of a potential Android Pie update being rolled to users in India is untrue. So, do not blame your device/operator if you do not get the update.
Nokia Mobile has started the rollout of Android P DP3 (beta 3) build to the Nokia 7 plus users. Nokia 7 plus is the only Nokia device participating in the Android P preview and it is good to see Nokia Mobile offering the latest builds (although they are a little slow about it).
The new build bumps the version to V3.110 from the V2.13B in the beta 2. Another good thing is that starting this time, Nokia Mobile is also offering the update via OTA. So, if you are already on DP2 (beta 2), then you can simply check for updates in the settings to receive it, hence saving yourself from downloading the package and sideloading via ADB.
The full package is B2N-3110-0-00WW-B03-update and can be downloaded off Nokia Developer website. You can downgrade to Oreo at any point by using the downgrade package which is also available on the Nokia Developer website.
Update: Here’s how the OTA update notification looks like.

Nokia Mobile has started the rollout of latest security patches for Nokia 7 plus. The latest update brings security releases for the month of July 2018. And Nokia Mobile also promised *some* improvements to the network performance. So, I am hoping that the remaining VoLTE or mobile data not working issues will get fixed.
Like other security updates, this is also a small package at 87.4 MB. As a reminder, the updates are pushed in phases and may not be immediately available in all regions. You can still head to device’s settings to do a manual check.
Thank you, Michael for the tip!
