HMD Global has started rolling out Android Pie (Go edition) update for Nokia 1. This is coming after the phone maker rolled out the same Android Pie update for the Nokia 3 smartphone earlier this month. The update comes with model number v2.130 and weighs 852.4MB in size. It also includes Android security patch for June 2019.
This was announced on twitter by Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global. He wrote;

The update comes with a new range of apps from Google designed to run faster while consuming less data. These are optimised to be smooth and fast, these include Google Go — a web search app, Google Maps Go, YouTube Go and Google Assistant for Android (Go edition), to quickly send messages, make calls, set alarms and do more, simply by using your voice.
According to Juho;
With the Nokia 1 getting its very own slice of Pie, we now have a full portfolio of Nokia phones on Android 9 Pie, starting at just sub $80. This changes the industry paradigm – for too long consumers have had to accept older OS versions as the norm on entry level smartphones. We are living our promise to deliver a phone that will keep getting better over time through the latest experiences and always being up-to-date. And with the Nokia 1 upgrade to Google’s latest OS, fans can get up-to-the-minute software experiences and innovations from Google even in the most affordable segment.
The Nokia 1 was unveiled back in March last year running Android 8.1 (Oreo) Go Edition, powered by a 2150mAh battery. The device features 4.5 inches, 5 MP Rear Camera with a 2 MP Front shooter. It sports a 1GB, 8GB internal storage with an expandable up to 128GB.
