Since the takeover of Nokia by HMD, the company has been trying so hard to return Nokia to its glory days. The efforts of HMD is paying off with the recent release of acceptable flagship smartphones. Another way that HMD hopes to use in capturing the hearts of users is in its consistent release of security and OS updates for existing Nokia smartphones. It has also promised its users that they will receive a minimum of two years OS update support (only very few companies goes above two years). Now it appears that Nokia 3 is getting the December security patch before its siblings. We already know that Nokia 3 won’t be getting Android 7.1.2 as it will port directly to Android Oreo thus we do not expect it to come along with this update.
The Nokia 3 December security patch is 345.4 MB in size. This update is rolling out OTA but if you have not been prompted to download it, you may go to settings then system update to check if its available for your device. This update comes with vulnerabilities fixes, UI enhancements, and improved system stability. Some users of this smartphone in India have confirmed receipt of this update but we don’t know if other regions are receiving it too. Click HERE for the detailed changelog of December Security patch
