You can now download Nokia 3 July 2017 software update. HMD Global rolled out the latest July 2017 update for Nokia 3 and Nokia 5, a couple of days back. This new software update is only 140MB in size, but brings the promised July Android security patch (in July!) and some UI enhancements and system improvements. We have installed the update on our Nokia 3 to see if there are any noticeable changes, and yes, we do see one. The default launcher shows a small notification badge of your unread emails in Gmail. Not sure how many apps it supports as of now, but it is a welcome update!
Users all over the world are receiving this new July 2017 update on the Nokia 3. You should get a notification prompt on your phone once the update is available and ready for download. However, you can also check for the update manually in your phone. For those who are curious and do not want to wait for the OTA (over-the-air) update to arrive, we have pulled off the update ZIP file for manual installation. You will need to flash this update ZIP file from the Recovery Mode on Nokia 3.
This is not much given by the HMD Global team for an update that is 140MB in size. However, we’d recommend you to install the OTA update as soon as possible. It is always better to install Android security patches at the earliest.
