Nokia 5.1 Plus and 6.1 Plus: What’s new on the Pie update?

Both the mid-rangers, 6.1 Plus and 5.1 Plus belongs to the Android One platform, which promises software updates faster than any third-party OEMs can offer. While the HMD Global might have been not early to the party, it surely hasn’t been late as most of the incumbent players haven’t started this update.

Now let’s talk about the changes coming to the system on the Nokia 5.1 Plus and 6.1 Plus. Starting with the gesture-based navigation support that’s found on the Pixel phones. Adaptive battery, adaptive brightness, AI functionality, and more. For camera enthusiasts, the update includes a Pro camera mode, which will give owners to play around with the specifics.
