Android 9 rollout to the Nokia 3 is not one of the fastest, but that’s reasonable considering Nokia 3 is one of the cheapest Nokia smartphones. The Nokia 3 was initially launched on Android Nougat, it updated to Android Oreo last year and now gets the Android 9. The latest Android 9 update is roughly for 1345.1 MB in size and bumps the build number to 5_120.
If you are still using the Nokia 3 from 2017, then you will shortly receive the update notification. It should be noted that the update will not appear immediately in all regions.
