Nokia 3 to get Android 7.1.1 by the end of August
Although the Nokia 3 is a low-cost smartphone with a MediaTek MT6737 processor and 2 GB memory on board, HMD Global promised it would get Android O once the update becomes available. In the meantime, this 5-inch handset is also scheduled to get Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
HDM Global's Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas, has recently posted the following message on Twitter: "Got a few questions on this so wanted to confirm that #Nokia3 will receive 7.1.1 update by end of August." In another message, he also added that Nokia 3 users across the entire world would get the update at the same time.
Android 8.0 should hit the market this fall, so the Nokia 3 will probably get that update not long after Android 7.1.1. Unfortunately, there are no specific launch dates to talk about yet, but we will get back to this topic as soon as these details surface online.
