Nokia 7 Plus Android P Developer Preview 4
The Nokia 7 has had a bumpy ride when it comes to Android P updates. There have been reports of errors and stability issues surfacing in the previous Android P update released about a month ago. An OTA that was intended to be the latest developer preview ended up downgrading the phone back to Oreo, to the shock of users. However, that issue is sorted out in the Android P Beta 3 / Developer Preview 4. The update bumps the Android security level and brings the July 2018 security patch along with system stability improvements to the Beta version.
Interested users can download or sign up to be a part of the Beta program at Nokia website. Since it’s a beta update and therefore could contain errors or stability issues, we advise against using it as your daily driver. The build is mainly aimed at developers to test their apps in Android P.
