Keeping up with their promise, Nokia 3 August 2017 system update is now live for all users worldwide. HMD Global rolled out the update a week back and it should now be live on every Nokia 3 now. The latest August 2017 update for the Nokia 3 brings the latest Google security patch for your Android device, adds minor UI enhancements and improves system stability.
Nokia 3 is still on Android 7.0 Nougat, and we are waiting for the Android 7.1 to arrive on this phone. It was expected that the latest Android 7.1 system update will arrive in late August, but it seems that has been delayed till next month. Not much to worry, as HMD Global has kept their end of the promise so far of updating Nokia phones regularly. And we already know Android Oreo will be coming to Nokia 3 later this year!
