Nokia 6.1 Plus is actually a very good smartphone when it comes to its price. It may not have the best specs for this price, as it has a stock Android experience that fills the gaps.

Download the OTA zip file into your PC, then move it to the same place you’ve installed ABD and the fastboot driver. Then you need to press and hold Shift key + right-click. Then select Open PowerShell window here’. After this, you need to turn off your device.

When you see the logo of Nokia, let go of the Power Key, but keep pressing the Volume Down Key until it’s in recovery mode. Look for the option ‘Apply update from ADB’ and select it.
Now, connect the phone to the PC by using a USB cable. Enter the command adb devices to see its connection status, then enter the command adb sideload DRG-330B-0-00WW-B01-update.zip. after the installation process is done, go back to the recovery menu and select the ‘Reboot system now’ to restart the device.
