Android 10 for Nokia's most premium phone has been on the cards since the leak of an internal test build for this OS was detected back in November 2019. Now, the OEM is pushing a major upgrade of the same out to users worldwide. It contains new features such as a dark theme, smart responses for messaging and the latest style of navigation.

Nokia has started to roll Android 10 out to the 9 PureView. This major software update would be an official, stable version of the internal test build that reportedly found its way beyond the company's developers in November 2019. Speaking of this date, it also features on the security patch included with this new upgrade.

Then again, Nokia 9 PureView users may find this the least impressive aspect of their new OTA, as it is also a part of the latest Android 9.0 (Pie) version for the same phone. However, its replacement - known as Android v5.31D for the OEM's current flagship - also contains distinctly 10-related UI and system changes.

They include the almost obligatory, but possibly very welcome, dark theme. Otherwise, the relevant changelog is relatively minimal, listing new features such as an option to switch to gesture-based navigation, auto-generated responses in the messaging app, and Android 10's enhanced privacy and location controls.

This update has been detected in some specific regions such as Russia to date. However, it should become available more globally over time. The OEM has advised interested 9 PureView owners to be sure to have the latest security patch installed prior to updating to this new 5.31D version.
