I got my Nokia 7 plus last week from Amazon.de - it is the global model, TA-1042
I heard people are getting the 8.1 firmware at the initial set-up.
My phone is stuck with 8.0 firmware and Feb security patch and I can't get the 8.1 firmware updat.
I tried manually to see if there is any update from Settings.
I have reset the phone to Factory Defaults and setup again twice, with and without SIM inserted.
I tried at different times of the day - still no update.
Is there another way to update manually?
Like download the update, boot in recovery and update.
According to Nokia Support:
"there is nothing to worry about- you will receive your update, but as they are released according to country, model and local operators, some devices have already got it, while others may need to wait for a few more days"
Same here. I live in France, I have my N7 plus for a week now and no 8.1 update yet. When I saw people having the update at the first start I was worried. I mean, it runs on Android One so why no update, right?
So yeah, apparently the release depends of your country. But, I really hope I will have the update in May!
I think that we would not get the update until the phone is released in our countries.I'll try to setup a VPN to test later
