While Android 9.0 Pie brings with it a range of useful new additions, such as an adaptive battery, tweaked navigation, and improved notifications that cut out the clutter. What’s more important and notable is that the Nokia 7 Plus will be the first non-Pixel phone to get the Digital Wellbeing features, which eventually shows a dashboard of your phone habits and tracks app time usage.

The update which we are talking about for Nokia 7 Plus will be happening in a phased rollout, and it will soon expand beyond the first 10% install base. The Nokia 7 Plus is a pure budget $400 Android phone that’s not officially available in the US but mainly targeted toward Asia and India, especially.

However, the Nokia 6.1 that’s available in the US, actually is expected to get the update soon as well, along with Nokia 7 Plus in Asia.

Despite the staggered release of Android Pie, the 9.0 update rollout been much faster than in previous years. It’s very much possible this may be due to a feature inside of Android Oreo called Project Treble. This supposed to let manufacturers make easier, faster updates to their phones.
