Just around the news of Nokia 3 getting Oreo Beta soon, here we have the direct download of January 2018 security system update for this phone. Nokia 3 users started receiving this Android security patch a couple of weeks back. Other than the usual security update, nothing new seems to be added with this release. We pulled out the manual OTA ZIP file for anyone who may need this update file for installation or whatever purpose.
This could be the very last Nougat update for the Nokia 3 as next month we could see the Android 8.0 Oreo Beta release. We cannot be more excited for that. To download the OTA ZIP file, continue reading ahead.
