A day after the official launch of Android Pie (9.0), Nokia announced the release of Android P Developer preview 5 (Beta 4) for all Nokia 7 Plus users. The new update brings a lot of improvements, but it also brings gestures to the Nokia 7 Plus.
Android P Developer Preview 5 (Beta 4) V3.150 for the Nokia 7 Plus brings along with it new navigation system, a new settings menu, and a new notification panel. It brings adaptive battery power prioritization, adaptive brightness, and app actions as well.
To receive OTA updates for the preview build or sideload it manually, you need to register first on the Nokia developer website. After that’s done, if you wish to not wait for the OTA, you can sideload it manually by flashing the ROM onto your device. We recommend that you download the beta release under a strong Wi-Fi connection and put your phone on charge.
The size of the update is at 1.4GB and it still comes with the July security patch. The update is available on Nokia website, but this means you’ll need to wipe out all data before you install the software. Therefore, ensure that you backup all your data before you proceed. You will need to register over at Nokia’s Developer Portal and download the relevant ROM files.
