HMD confirms Nokia 3 will get Android 7.1.2 update

The Nokia 6, 5, and 3 have all received updates this month. However, unlike the first two, the Nokia 3 didn’t get Android 7.1.2 as part of the update. Well, HMD has now confirmed that the phone will indeed be getting the updated Nougat OS version.

The company also revealed the reason behind the delay. The Mediatek processor on Nokia 3 means slight delay in getting updated drivers and some more time required to complete their testing.

The update should arrive sometime next month (likely along with the monthly security patch) because the device – as well as all other Nokia branded devices from HMD – is already confirmed to get Oreo before the end of the year.
