Nokia 3 started receiving October Android Security update some days ago, but the update didn’t bring the much-awaited Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS update for the Nokia 3. Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 are already getting Android 7.1.2 Nougat along with the October Security update.
We reached to HMD to understand the reason behind Nokia 3 not getting Android 7.1.2 update along with Nokia 5 and Nokia 6.
It seems Nokia 3 is poised to get Android 7.1.2 before the Android Oreo update but the update is delayed because of a very well-known reason. Mediatek processor on Nokia 3 means slight delay in getting updated drivers and some more time required to complete their testing.
This may mean that Nokia 3 will get Android 7.1.2 most probably with the next monthly update cycle (November).
Android 7.1.2 brings enhanced notification stability, Battery Usage alerts, fingerprint swipe performance improvements and more. It also packs a number of bug fixes, added features, and general performance/stability improvements. You can read the full Android 7.1.2 changelog by clicking here.
