Nokia now also supplies its own entry-level smartphone Nokia 3 with an update to Android 8.0 Oreo. Starting today, the current version of Android will be distributed as an OTA update.
Owners of a Nokia 3 can now upgrade their smartphone to Android 8.0 Oreo. As HMD Global Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas announced on Twitter, the final Oreo update will be distributed a few weeks after the beta phase starts. This will be provided over time for all devices around the globe.
Nokia 3 with Oreo: Those are the innovations
With Android 8.0 Oreo come various innovations to the Nokia 3. These include, for example, the new picture-in-picture mode, Google’s Autofill API and the notification dots on the home screen. Plus, Smart Text Selection now makes it easier to use tagged sections of text and multimedia notifications get a new look.
Although HMD Global may not build the most technically interesting smartphones, the software support is absolutely exemplary. If you can not upgrade your Nokia 3 to Android 8.0 Oreo yet, the update will probably arrive in the next few days. Do not panic – some patience may still be needed 🙂
