October Security update for Nokia 3 brings round Google search box too

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.

    It’s October 21 and there is no update when Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 will receive this update in India. There is no mean of faster and secure upto date when they are this much late in providing security update in india. I am fan of nokia but this thing isn’t good, hmd should provide updates in India at same time of other regions.

      Have you ever consider that it could be of regulatory issues in India?

      • Sahil Malik

        I don’t think so or may be not aware of regulatory issues regarding updates but what I believe 1 reason can be Amazon linking so they need to do different coding for that.
