Nokia 3 started receiving the latest December 2017 OTA security system update earlier last week. And by this time, most Nokia 3 users should already have this update installed. We just powered on our Nokia 3 and pulled out the manual OTA ZIP file for anyone who may need this update file for whatever purpose.
HMD Global keeping up their promise of updating every Nokia phone with regular Android security updates, wraps up the year with flying colours. Nokia 3, Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 have been very regularly updated with monthly Google security patches. It is rumoured that Nokia will be skipping Android 7.1.2 altogether on this phone and will roll out Android 8.0 Oreo — we think, that is super awesome and we can patiently wait for that.
