Nokia 3 starts receiving Android Oreo 8.1 from Google

With Finnish HMD Global managing the designs of the “mythical” Nokia, the brand’s smartphones have thrived in recent years. A prosperity that is due, in part, to the excellent policy of software updates for such Device. In this sense, the Nokia 3 now comes another update, based on Google’s Android Oreo 8.1.

The smartphone in question, the Nokia 3, was introduced in February 2017 and is therefore one of the brand’s oldest terminals. It still keeps updating with the previous version of Google’s operating system.

First of all, this Android smartphone is a low-end device, prized for price as well as for quality of construction. However, its characteristics still allow it to provide a minimally pleasurable use experience.

These include the new On / Off menu, new battery indicator as well as a new indicator for devices connected via Bluetooth. Not to mention a reinforcement of the stability and performance of the entire system.

We also count on the eventual arrival of Android Pie 9.0

However, we must point out that Android Oreo 8.1 is already one year old. Yes, this version is not the latest version, but updated with Android Pie 9.0. This version has already been promised for all current Nokia smartphones from HMD Global.

Thirdly, this version of Google’s operating system comes via OTA ( over the air ) to the Nokia 3 gradually and phased. The update for a total of 1.8GB, taking the version number V4.42D.

In short, HMD Global is a living example of how to support a brand’s mobile devices. Even the low-end smartphones, often overlooked in this area, get attention and news!

A well-behave to this kind of practices.
