Nokia 3 to get Android 7.1.1 Nougat update by end of August

When we reached to HMD regarding Android 7.1.1 Nougat update for Nokia 3 we only came to know that it would be “coming soon”. But now we have some better and concrete timeline to look forward to thanks to a tweet by Juho Savikas, Chief Product Officer, HMD Global.

Juho took Twitter to confirm that Nokia 3 will receive Android 7.1.1 Nougat by end of August. So there is still one month to go before Nokia 3 owners can expect it to receive Android 7.1.1.

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.

Coming to what Android 7.1.1 brings over Android 7.0, you can refer to the official changelog posted by Google.

    Lets hope so. My Nokia 3 can’t install the July security update. All I get told from support is to reset the phone. What a disappointment. The phone is only a week old and already needs a reset. I’ll wait to see what happens in August. I don’t want to be resetting too often. This is the trouble with low end phones.
