“Nokia 3.1 was launched last May with Android Oreo along with a promise of two years of software version updates, so it is likely to receive Android Q sometime in next year.”
HMD Global announced yesterday that its affordable Nokia 3.1 (Nokia 3 2018) is getting Android Pie update. HMD’s Chief Product Officer, Juho Sarvikas has declared the news on Twitter on Pi Day and he has also mentioned that its devices are getting better with time. However, as for now, no one has replied to Juho’s announcement showing the OTA update screenshot, so a detailed changelog is currently unavailable.
In January, HMD shared its Android Pie update roadmap on Twitter. While the Nokia 3.1 Plus got the update later than it was planned, it seems Nokia 3.1 is right on time. Most of the smartphone makers are right on schedule to distribute the software update for their latest flagship but for mid-rangers most of the time they lag behind.
Android Authority, the publication has recognised the HMD Global as the best pie distributive in the industry and while announcing the update news on Twitter, Juho has said to celebrate the recognition it has decided to roll out the Pie update on Nokia 3.1. The smartphone was launched in last May with Android Oreo along with the declaration that it will get two years of version updates and three years of security updates. So, we can hope that it will likely receive the most-awaited Android Q sometime in next year.
As mentioned before, no detailed changelog of the update has been revealed yet, it is already known that the update will be over 1GB and bring in features like redesigned user interface, navigation gestures, adaptive brightness and adaptive battery to the Nokia 3.1. The update will also include screenshot editor, volume control changes and rotation lock.
