The Nokia 3 smartphone which was launched in India last month with Android 7.0 along with Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 is now confirmed to get Android 7.1.1 Nougat update by August end. The confirmation comes straight from HMD’s chief product officer, Juho Sarvikas official twitter handle who has revealed that Nokia 3 will receive the Android 7.1.1 Nougat by the end of August. So there is still one month left for Nokia 3 owners to receive Android 7.1.1 update.
His tweet says “Got a few questions on this so wanted to confirm that #Nokia3 will receive 7.1.1 update by end of August. @nokiamobile”. HMD Global already promised operating system support for its Android smartphones before minimum two years. The delay in Nokia 3 getting Android 7.1.1 is however blamed on its MediaTek processor.
