The long-standing wait of Nokia 3 users for Android 8.1 is finally coming to an end. The original Nokia 3 is now receiving Android 8.1 along with the Android security patch dated December 2018. The update changelog also mentions “System Stability”, suggesting that the update can turn out to be a nice Christmas gift for the Nokia 3 users.
It is definitely the time to talk about Pie, but something is always better than nothing. There is generally a lag in major updates for devices powered by Mediatek SoC, and the delay for Nokia 3 could be due to that. That said, there could be other factors contributing to the delayed rollout of Android 8.1.
If you are currently sporting a Nokia 3, then it is the time to check for updates. You will not be disappointed 🙂
