As reported and promised, you can now download Nokia 3 Android 7.1.1 update for manual installation. Nougat system update is now live and rolling out to everyone. We just received the update over-the-air directly to our Nokia 3 and were lucky enough to pull the update.zip file for manual flashing. This update comes just in time as Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 users just started receiving the September 2017 security update.
Android 7.1.1 brings app shortcuts, image inputs from keyboard, plenty of new emojis and much more under-the-hood improvements to your overall experience. The software team at HMD Global has been very active with regular system updates and security patches from Google. Next, we wait for the official Android Oreo update to reach our Nokia phones!

Download Nokia 3 Android 7.1.1 OTA System Update
You can now download and install Android 7.1 Nougat on Nokia 3 manually without having to wait for the OTA update to reach your phone. The official changelog of this system update says:
What’s New in Nokia 3 Android 7.1.1 Update:
– OS upgrade: Android 7.1
– Improved system stability
– User interface enhancements
This update is 748MB in size, so it is recommended to use WiFi to download instead of using your mobile data. You will be on the August 2017 security patch even after installing this update. So you can expect another system update soon for the Nokia 3 bringing the September 2017 security patch.
You can download the update file from here: Download Nokia3_Android_7.1.1_Nougat_Update.zip
NOTE: This update ZIP file was pulled out of a Nokia 3 (TA-1032). You can try installing this OTA update on other variants of the phone at your own risk, but we highly recommend NOT doing that.

You can install this update ZIP file on your Nokia 3 by two methods:
- Install by using ADB
- Install with ZIP file on the phone
The first method is by flashing the update ZIP file using ADB on the Nokia 3 phone. Second method is to flash the ZIP file directly from the phone.
