  • Android 9 Pie puts AI at the core of the operating system with added focus on intelligence simplicity and digital wellbeing* 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 8 October-   HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, has announced the  roll out of Android 9 Pie on EISA’s Consumer Smartphone of the Year, the Nokia 7 plus. Fans will start receiving Android 9 Pie on their Nokia 7 plus today*.
 
Packed with Google’s intuitive software, and only the most essential apps loaded, the Nokia 7 plus serves Android 9 Pie with no bloatware, skins UI changes or hidden processes eating up your battery life. This upgrade builds upon the strong features of Android 8.0 Oreo™, and focuses on a more tailored experience with emphasis on AI, machine learning and digital wellbeing.
 
The Nokia 7 plus powered by Android 9 Pie  creates the most efficient Nokia smartphone yet. Advances in machine learning and AI features, such as Adaptive Battery and App Actions, ensure smarter resourcing of power and processing and accelerate smartphone functionality.
 
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global, said: “We constantly strive to deliver on our promise of offering pure, secure, up-to-date Android on Nokia smartphones. Today, we are extremely delighted to start the roll out of Android 9 Pie on Nokia 7 plus –  making us among the first to offer the latest innovations from Google, including Android One exclusive features such as App Notifications, to the value flagship tier.” 
 
As part of the Android One family, the Nokia 7 plus will introduce App Actions – a new feature unique  to Android One devices and Google Pixel  phones running Android 9 Pie. App Actions learns more about your daily usage and assists you with your everyday tasks. Your Nokia 7 plus will predict and recommend your next action at the moment it’s needed the most - whether it’s business, music or lifestyle.        
 
The Nokia 7 plus is optimised to extract every bit of juice from the already powerful battery. With Adaptive Battery, Android 9 Pie uses deep learning to understand patterns in phone usage and  prioritises battery power for apps that are important to you.  
 
The Nokia 7 plus is optimised to extract every bit of juice from the already powerful battery. And now with Adaptive Battery, Android 9 Pie uses deep learning to understand patterns in phone usage and prioritises battery power for your favourite apps.
 
As well as smart technology advances, from fall 2018, the new update will come with added Digital Wellbeing features to help encourage breaks from screen time. New functionalities include highlighting device time on your Dashboard, the ability to set time limits for app usage and Wind Down Mode which fades your phone to grayscale and activates Do Not Disturb at a predetermined time in the evening.  Nokia smartphones have long encouraged digital downtime with the inclusion of Nokia 3310 and 8110 to our range supporting time off from scrolling.
