After Nokia 8, Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 in some markets, Nokia 3 is also receiving the October Security update now. Our Nokia 3 TA-1032 variant in India received it right now. What is bit disappointing though is that unlike Nokia 6 and Nokia 5, Nokia 3 hasn’t received the Android 7.1.2 along with October Security update.

As you can see in the screenshots above the October security update for Nokia 3  is 401.1 MB in size.  You will either be prompted to download this update or you can check by going to Settings and searching system updates and then by checking for the update.

Nokia 3 October Security update changelog:

The changelog for the update mentions improved system stability and user-interface enhancements too. What is noticeable in terms of user-interface enhancements is the reshaped Google search box. The search box has now a rounded shape ditching the square one.

HMD has been quite consistent in terms of releasing Monthly Security updates and OS updates for Nokia smartphones already available in the market. HMD has also made it clear that all Nokia Android Phones will receive minimum two years of OS update support.
