Nokia 3 Is Next To Get Android Oreo


Since HMD took over Nokia, the brand have been performing quite well with one of its stronghold¬†being¬†the release of an early update to its devices. Recently, Nokia 8 started receiving the Oreo update. As for Nokia 3, it was supposed to receive Android¬†7.1.2 in late October but this didn’t¬†happen. However, users of this device were not worried because¬†Android 7.0 which currently runs on this smartphone has acceptable performance. Now, information from the top of HMD suggests that Nokia 3 will¬†skip the incremental Android 7.1.2 update and port straight to Android Oreo. HMD Global¬†Chief Product Officer,¬†Juho Sarvikas, made this known on Twitter after a user asked what is next for Nokia 3.

For now, we only know that Nokia 3 will be getting Android Oreo. There is obviously no date attached to the tweet above. Recall that this smartphone couldn’t¬†get Android¬†7.1.2 update because there seem to be some sort of issue with its¬†Mediatek chip getting drivers. We can only hope that the Oreo arrives this device seamlessly.

As a reminder, Nokia 3 which was released in February 2017 is powered by a Quad-core Mediatek MT6737 processor clocking 1.4 GHz coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory which is expandable up to 256GB. It is equipped with a Corning Gorilla Glass protected 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 720 x 1280 pixels display resolution. In the camera department, Nokia 3 comes with an 8MP rear camera supported by another 8MP selfie shooter. The smartphone which is built with an Aluminum frame and a plastic back ships with a non-removable Li-ion 2,630 mAh battery.
