The company had announced then that it would roll out the Android 8.1 update soon. Now with the Nokia 3 getting the Android Oreo 8.0 update, it has now joined the likes of Nokia 8 (8.0 and 8.1), Nokia 6 (8.0 and 8.1) and Nokia 5 (8.0 and 8.1), which have received the new OS update in the last six months.

Shaun Durandt, HMD Global General Manager, said as the value market leader in feature phones, it understood the barriers and challenges people faced when it came to the step up to a smartphone, hence the firm had through the Nokia 1 made its "most accessible smartphone ever". In addition, HMD Global has also rolled the Android 8.1 OTA for Nokia 6 of 2018 along with the Nokia 7 Plus devices. It is expected to bring changes like battery saving navigation buttons, revamped power menu, new settings menu and Bluetooth battery percentage. All Nokia smartphones with Android Oreo from Nokia 3 and up support zero-touch enrolment.


Nokia 3 is powered by 1.3Ghz Quad-core MediaTek MTK 6737 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage (expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card). The rear camera has LED flash. The front houses a 16MP shooter for selfies and it is bakced by a 3,800 mAh battery.

Android Oreo also claims to boost the enterprise credentials of smartphones by streamlining the deployment of devices, creating personal and professional profiles, and improving security. Earlier today, HMD Global also announced that it has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo update for its a year ago launched budget smartphone Nokia 3.
