Finally, Nokia 3 To Get Android 7.1.2 Update

Some days ago, an update was released to Nokia 3, 5 and 6. This update contains Android 7.1.2, but while Nokia 5 and 6 got the OS update, Nokia 3 didn’t¬†get it and this left many wondering why Nokia 3 was left out. Now, the Finnish company has confirmed that the phone will soon receive the¬†updated Nougat OS version.

HMD revealed that the reason behind the delay is the MediaTek chip that the smartphone uses. This processor experienced a delay in drivers updating and requires more time for tests to be completed.¬† Recall that both Nokia 5 & 6 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset thus they did not experience any delay.¬†This update is not arriving immediately as it is expected to drop with next month’s security patch.¬†Nokia 3, 5 and 6 are already¬†confirmed¬†to receive Oreo before the end of the year.
