HMD started the global roll-out of Android Pie update to Nokia 5.1 Plus today. While the Android Pie update brings all the new OS features and changes to Nokia 5.1 Plus, HMD has also added few interesting changes of its own to the mix.
The first interesting change is notch hiding option becoming available in the display settings. Unlike Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 5.1 Plus didn’t have this option by default. You also don’t need to go to developer options anymore to do the same.
As you can notice in the screenshot above the new Pie build brings the Pro camera mode to Nokia 6.1 Plus and it becomes the second non-Zeiss Nokia Android smartphone after Nokia 6.1 Plus to get the Pro mode. Today even HMD CPO Juho made this official on Twitter.
We know that 🎅 left already but he left one more gift behind before going back home to Korvatunturi Finland 🇫🇮 – Based on popular demand, Pro Camera is now available on Nokia 5.1 Plus Android 9 release and Nokia 6.1 Plus December release!
