Nokia confirmed just last week that it would be rolling out the first wave of Android Pie updates to devices this month, beginning with phones running on the Snapdragon 600-series. True to its word, an Android 9 Pie Beta has now arrived for the Nokia 6.1 Plus, along with the October security patch.
The Nokia 6.1 Plus launched in July as a version of the China-exclusive X6. The Nokia 6.1, launched in January, is also due to receive Pie, but the update isn't available on Nokia's website for beta testers yet. The Nokia 7.1 is set to get Pie before the end of the month, while the Nokia 8 and Nokia 8 Sirocco will get Pie next month.

Since Nokia is strongly committed to Android One, users can expect a stock experience with minimal bloatware and custom UI, plus update support for at least two years from launch.
Those interested in nabbing the update can head to the beta tester site in the source link below, enter their device IMEI and network provider for validation, then request the OTA.
