Good news is that the update is already available for Nokia 5.1 Plus TA-1102 variant in India and our device is already downloading the update as we write it. It brings standard Android Pie features like adaptive battery, adaptive brightness, and more. With these features, users can set a daily schedule to get the phone ready for bed. Let's see what comes next ahead of Nokia 9 Launch. The Nokia 9 PureView actually got postponed a number of times thus far, and the last time occurred because of the phone's cameras, at least if reports are to be believed. The latest one re-confirms the claim that there will be five cameras at the back placed in a circular pattern. The phone will also ship without a display notch, and without a punch hole in the display. The upcoming phone is expected to come with a penta camera setup, making it the first smartphone to feature five camera sensors on the back.
