Reconfirmed officially: Nokia 3 will get Android 8.0 (Android O)

So, HMD confirmed Android O roll-out to Nokia Android smartphones when it will be released by Google in an official statement given to us. HMD has also made it clear that all Nokia Android Phones will receive minimum two years of OS update support.

But, perhaps it is always good to be doubly sure about it when it comes to Nokia 3, which runs on a MediaTek processor, a company not so well-known for supporting Android updates with drivers. So, here is one more official confirmation or we can say reconfirmation about Android O (Android 8.0) for Nokia 3.

Google may soon release final Android 8.0 build for its Beta testers and also make it available for vendors to test and push. So, while we can’t expect an immediate roll-out of Android 8.0 to Nokia 3, 5 and 6 given HMD’s good work with Monthly security updates we can expect a faster roll-out schedule as compared to other vendors.

Thanks Mehul for sending this tip. Cheers!!

    I highly doubt the Nokia 3 will get 2 years of updates. Not only because MediaTek won’t support the SoC that long but also because it’s very likely that Google itself cuts support for it (like they did for the Snapdragon 801).

      That won’t happen as the SoC used in Nokia 3 is the same one used in 4th gen Android One phones so getting updates for 2 years is possible unless there is a SoC limitation or if MediaTek screws up

        The SD801 was a flagship SoC that wasn’t two years old but Google dropped support for it nonetheless. That’s my point. We can never be sure with these things.
