Nokia 3 to get Android 7.1.1 by the end of August

Nokia 3 Android smartphone receives 7.1.1 Nougat software update
Nokia 3
On its way to the promised Android O update, this affordable 5-inch Nokia smartphone is scheduled to receive the next minor Nougat refresh in the coming month.

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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
