It’s only a couple of weeks ago, when HMD rolled-out the latest Android Oreo 8.1 update to the 2017 line-ups- Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. However the Nokia 3, the smaller among the two didn’t receive the update then and has left the device owners in much confusion and anxiety. Nevertheless, it’s now good to know that the firm has started Oreo update roll-out for the Nokia 3 as well.

Unlike the Nokia 5 and 6, that’d received the latest Android Oreo 8.1, the Nokia 3 is perhaps getting the slightly older version of Android Oreo (8.0). The CEO of HMD Global – Juho Survikas took himself to Twitter for officially announcing the major update.
Note that, the major update is taking a round gradually over the air starting from today. Hence, if the update notification is not visible at your end. Don’t panic as soon, in coming days you’ll be able to see the update notification popping-up on your device.
As some of you might know, the Mediatek MT6737 powered, Nokia 3 is the weak-chain among HMD’s initial set of Nokia Android devices. But, the firm doesn’t consider that to be a factor for keeping the Oreo update away from the device. Given that its Snapdragon powered counterparts/siblings – Nokia 5 and 6 have already been blessed with the same.
So far, HMD Global has did quite a good job in terms of software support for its Nokia branded Android devices. We should really appreciate the firm for this commitment. Nevertheless, it’s to been how well the firm succeeds in maintaining the old devices with the increasing number of new devices as the time passes.
