Nokia 5 Pie update size:
Nokia 5 is getting Android Pie Build V6.12E and it is 1663.2 MB in size.
As one can see in the screenshot above Pie update for Nokia 5 brings most of the features including Adaptive Battery, Adaptive Brightness and lots of UI and usability improvements. Since Nokia 5 is not an Android One smartphone, some features like Digital Wellbeing and Apps actions are missing.
The new gesture navigation is also missing as it is a smartphone with hardware touch-buttons. Though on brighter side the Google search widget is not fixed to bottom as we have seen on Android One smartphones with on-screen touch buttons. This also confirms that Adaptive battery feature may be heading to Nokia 8 soon.
Recently HMD revealed the Pie update road-map for all of its smartphones barring Nokia 2 that you can check here.
