Nokia 7 Plus gets Android P Developer Preview 4 (Beta 3)
Nokia recommends that users delete their data from the phone regardless of whether they are upgrading or downgrading
Earlier this month, Google released Developer Preview 4 (Beta 3) for the Google Pixel lineup. The news coincided with a report claiming that Nokia would roll out the Android P update on all its phones. Recently, the company introduced the Android P update (beta) on Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7 and Nokia 8 Sirocco smartphones in China. Recent reports suggest that the company has started rolling out Android P Developer Preview 4 (Beta 3) for Nokia 7 Plus.
A moderator of the Nokia Phone Community Page said, “Thank you for your interest in the Android P Beta Developer Program on the Nokia 7 Plus. The new Android P – DP4 (Beta 3) V3.110 image is now available for both sideload and OTA (please suggest that OTA delivery will automatically delete all user data from your device). According to the manual flash instructions, it is strongly recommended that you delete user data before upgrading and / or downgrading. “
Google has rolled out the DP4 (Beta 3) of its upcoming Android P OS, bringing the latest bug fixes and optimizations for stability as well as the July 2018 security update. Developer APIs have already been finalized in a previous update, with Dave Burke, vice president of engineering, dubbing this preview as the closest version to what you will see in the final version of Android P later this summer.
The executive wrote, “Beta 3 is an early release candidate build of Android with almost the final system behavior and the official Android API (API level 28)”. With the Beta 3 system image and updated build tool, developers are now getting everything they need to test their applications or expand with Android P features like multi-camera support, display cutouts, advanced notifications, image decoder, textclassifier and more.
You can get Android P Beta 3 on supported devices by registering for the Android Beta program. If you have already registered and received Android P Beta 2, you will automatically receive updates to Beta 3. But before you proceed with the test, be aware that with Android P Beta, you may encounter several bugs, and if you want to unsubscribe from the program later, your phone will need a factory reset.
