HMD Global began rolling out the January Android security patch for its entry-level Nokia 3.1 Plus smartphone earlier this week. Sadly, though, the company is yet to roll out the stable Android Pie update for the handset. Fortunately, it now appears the stable Android Pie update for the handset may be just around the corner. The smartphone has appeared on the Geekbench benchmark database running on the latest Android version.
Nokia 3.1 Plus Could Finally Get a Slice of Pie Soon
The Nokia 3.1 Plus caught on Geekbench achieved a respectable 835 points in the single-core and 3,465 points in the multi-core test. These scores suggest the update has been optimized quite well for the handset. The listing suggests HMD Global may begin rolling out the stable update for the Nokia 3.1 Plus, although we cannot be completely sure. Unlike most Android OEMs, however, HMD Global has managed to update most of its smartphones to the latest Android version already. So there is certainly a good chance that the stable Android Pie update for the Nokia 3.1 Plus may be released before the end of the current quarter. The Nokia 3.1 Plus was announced in October last year with Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box. Since it is an Android One smartphone, the Nokia 3.1 Plus will receive two major OS upgrades.
The entry-level Nokia 3.1 Plus comes with a 6.0-inch IPS LCD display featuring 720 x 1440 HD+ resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. It runs on a MediaTek Helio P22 12nm octa-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. The smartphone is available in two memory configurations: 2GB RAM + 16GB onboard storage and 3GB RAM + 32GB onboard storage. Moving on to optics, the Android One handset has a 13MP + 5MP dual-camera setup on the back and an 8MP selfie snapper on the front. It is fueled by a 3500mAh capacity battery.
