That's not all - the Nokis USB driver is also said to gain an update as well as the version of preload app. Also, the Android 7.1 brings Daydream VR mode, new developer features, and the manual storage manager.

According to a recent report from NPU, Nokia 9 will be the flagship smartphone that the Finnish company is going to release.
