Nokia 3 is the only Nokia device currently running Android 7.1.1.That is not strange since MediaTek is rather hard to push for latest Android updates.
But, since the Oreo is already alive and kicking, it is better to update Nokia 3 directly to it. And that is what HMD is planning to do. Juho Sarvikas, CPO of the HMD Global tweeted recently that
Nokia 3 will go directly to Oreo.
We are still not sure when, but it should happen soon.
Thanks Akilesh for the info 🙂
