HMD Global has finally started pushing Android 7.1.1 Nougat update to the Nokia 3 and you can download it from the link below. Previously, Nokia 3 was the only phone in the 2017 Nokia Android smartphone lineup running Android 7.0 Nougat rather than 7.1 but HMD promised to update it quite soon and here we have it, the official Android 7.1.1 Nougat build for the Nokia 3. The Android 7.1.1 Nougat system update for the Nokia 3 brings in the updated system version along with some bug fixes and user interface changes. The pure stock scheme is being carried forward along with no bloat. Although this is September and other Nokia phones have received the September security patch, this build comes with August security patch level. HMD focused on updating the system version first so we can expect the security update to arrive quite soon as well. Read below to find out how you can download Android 7.1.1 Nougat OTA system update for Nokia 3.

HMD promised for quite some time that Nokia 3 would be updated to Android 7.1 to be on par with other Nokia flagships and finally, the update has arrived. However, as the security update for September is being pushed to Nokia 5 and Nokia 6, Nokia 3 hasn’t received that yet. We hope to see the update for the security release arrive quite soon.
If you run into problems, reach to us through the comments. Also, stay tuned for the upcoming September security update.
