We will skip betalabs on Nokia 6.1 and roll out 🍰 soon,” Juho tweeted in response to a query on the Nokia 6.1 Android Pie update.
For those unaware, Nokia Beta Labs is a service in which beta software for Nokia smartphones are available for users to test new features and improvements before they are rolled out to ‘stable channel’. HMD Global recently released Android 9.0 update via Nokia Beta Labs for the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The latest update brought Adaptive Battery, gesture-based navigation and App Actions for the mid-range Nokia smartphone. Recently, the company has released a stable Android 9.0 Pie update to the Nokia 7 Plus as well.
