The Nokia 1 Plus may be an older model but the phone can still be upgraded to Android 11. The good news has been shared on a thread that includes a list of the countries that will not get the Wave 1 update. There is still a limit to what the Nokia (HMD Global) team can do. The Android 11 Go edition is almost ready for the Nokia 1 Plus sold in most countries. If you own the said model, you will be happy to learn you can finally experience Android 11.
Over a year ago, the Nokia 1 Plus received Android 10 (Go Edition) update. We didn’t really think Android 11 (Go Edition) would still roll out but here it is. Expect more features and improvements will be added to the Nokia 1 Plus.
