HMD Global arrived promising to be one of the fastest smartphone companies rolling out Android updates. In fact, the Finnish company did well with the first Nokia smartphones, but low-end smartphones have been suffering to get the same treatment as high-end devices. As far as the Nokia 3.4 is concerned, we can say that it’s better late than never. Today, the entry-level smartphone is getting an Android 11 update. It’s a little late as Google is expected to roll stable Android 12 in a few days from now. However, that shouldn’t affect the Nokia 3.4 that much as the device probably won’t get Android 12 before 2022.
HMD Global announced the Android 11 rollout for the smartphone via its Nokia Phones Community. Interestingly, the update rollout is happening in waves. Therefore, the first wave is covering the following countries:
Android 11 update Wave 1
- Austria (A1 AT, T-Mobile AT)
- Hong Kong
- Saudi Arabia
- Sri Lanka
According to HMD Global, around 50 percent of the users in the above-listed countries will receive the update today August 21. Moreover, until the end of August 22, all users rocking this smartphone will receive this update. The company will expand the update to other regions in the coming days. In fact, it has confirmed to publish a similar announcement post to notify users.
If you want to check if the update is available for you, then head to the Settings menu to check if there is any software update available. The Nokia 3.4 was revealed in September 2020 with Android 10. Now, in almost one year the device is getting its first-ever Android update. For now, we’re curious to see if the handset will receive Android 12.
