Nokia 3 receives stable Android Oreo 8.0 update via OTA
Even though the Nokia 7 Plus is yet to go on sale in the country, HMD Global has started rolling out a new software update for the smartphone, bumping the Android version to 8.1 Oreo.
Today, nearly two months after the beta program started, Android 8.0 Oreo for Nokia 3 is finally arriving. But HMD is apparently updating the Nokia 3 to Android 8.0.
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". It it is the lastest Android Software from Google and arrives in as build v2.13B for the Nokia 6.1 and the Nokia 7 Plus.
The Nokia 8 was one of the first devices included in Android Enterprise Recommended, a new Google-led programme that makes recommendations on the business devices and networks best suited for Android Enterprise deployments.
Along with it, the update is also rolling out to the Nokia 6 (2018), which is already up for sale via the Nokia Mobile Shop, and select retail outlets including Sangeetha, Poorvika, Big C, Croma and Reliance.
For the unknown, the Nokia 3 was first unveiled during MWC 2017, before being launched in India in June. Running Android 8.0 Oreo operating system, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor. The phones can be configured online and drop-shipped to employees so that they can start using their Nokia phones right out of the box. The Android 8.1 update for the Nokia 7 Plus comes with a size of 590.2MB and brings the exact same features.
