Having launched a truckload of new smartphones this year, HMD Global has also been pretty good at keeping the old ones supported with relevant updates. To that end, the Finnish company is now seeding a new update to Nokia 3, an entry-level smartphone that it launched last year.
The new update brings stable Android 8.1 Oreo to Nokia 3, and comes bundled with the security patch for the month of December. The new features include a revamped power menu, new settings menu, Bluetooth battery percentage indication, and general system stability improvements.
Around 1.8GB in size, the update is currently available only in selected markets. These include Sri Lanka, Finland, Pakistan, Romania, and Egypt, NPU reports. As is always the case, the update is being rolled in a phased manner, so it may take a while for all Nokia 3 units out there to get it. Those having a Nokia 3 can also manually check for the update under the smartphone’s settings.
