Nokia 3 is the only Android-running Nokia phone with Mediatek processor, that’s problematic, because their SoC’s usually don’t get the latest updates. However, that is not the case with Nokia devices, since one of the selling points of them is regular Android and safety updates. HMD Global promised that Nokia 3 would get the Android 7.1.1. update by the end of August and that is going to happen. In a way. Juho sarvikas, the CTO of the company, has just informed Nokia fans that the Android 7.1.1 update for Nokia 3 has been approved today and that it will be going toward devices soon.
Actually, you will not get it today, but the update is going to be phased in the next few days, which is going to be enough to ensure that it is stable enough for the devices with Nokia logo on them.
Therefore, Nokia 3 owners rejoice since you will be getting the Android 7.1.1 #soon.
