The Android One phone Nokia 3.1 Plus could be the next device from the brand to get upgraded to Android 9 Pie.

Then followed Nokia 5.1 Plus, Nokia 6.1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 7.1 and Nokia 8 in the last quarter of 2018. Nokia 8 Sirocco was the first phone in 2019 to get the upgrade and the update was rolled out about 10 days ago.

It is powered by MediaTek Helio P22 SoC and comes in two RAM variants namely 2GB and 3GB and two internal storage variants namely 16GB and 32GB.

Having spotted on Geekbench, this phone can be expected to get the update anytime soon in January or in February probably! Nokia is pretty quick at rolling out these upgrades. The other phones expected to get Android Pie upgrade in Q1 2019 are Nokia 5, Nokia 5.1, Nokia 6 and Nokia 7. Other old devices would probably be updated only in the second quarter of 2019 or after that.
