HMD has been launching some really great mid-range Nokia Android devices. One such devices is the Nokia 3.1 Plus. The smartphone is available in Nigeria and as of today, it’s got the latest version of Android 9 Pie. Hence, it;s on the list of Nokia phones with Android 9 Pie.
If you’re using a Nokia 3.1 Plus and did not previously have Android 9 Pie, probably running Android 8 Oreo, head into your phone’s settings, navigate to “system > system update“. After searching for available update, you should be able to download the Android 9 Pie update to the smartphone over an unmetered wifi.
If you are getting a “download paused, waiting for wifi” notification while downloading the update, that simply means you are connected to a metered wifi, probably from mobile hotspot of another smartphone. Hence, you should try connecting to an ‘infrastrucure’ wifi network as opposed to the mobile hotspot.
After upgrading your Nokia 3.1 Plus from Android 8 to Android 9, you can check out the Nokia online community for tips and tricks on how to get the nest out of your smartphone.
