We last reported via HMD’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas that Nokia 3 would get Android 7.1.1 Nougat update by end of August. Now, Juho has confirmed on Twitter that Android 7.1.1 for Nokia 3 has been approved and should start rolling out soon.
7.1.1 Update approved and will now be rolled out. We will phase it over a few days to ensure quality

Though the update rollout will be in phases in a bid to ensure quality as per the above tweet. Coming to what Android 7.1.1 brings over Android 7.0, you can refer to the official changelog posted by Google.
HMD has already promised minimum two years of OS update support for its Android smartphones. But the delay in Nokia 3 getting Android 7.1.1 is squarely blamed on MediaTek, that people claim is slow in proving updated drivers for Android updates.
