Nokia 3 Will Skip Android 7.1.2 Nougat And Get Android 8.0 Oreo Update Instead
Android phones, apart from Google’s own Pixel and Nexus lineup have a notorious image for not receiving timely software updates. Mid-range phones go two years without seeing the light of day to any kind of software upgrade. The Nokia 3 was the first Nokia-branded Android pohone to go on sale in India and it appears that the phone is in line to receive Android 8.0 Oreo update soon.
HMD Global’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvokas confirmed this on Twitter.
Thanks! We will transition straight to Oreo
