HMD Global, which holds the global rights to market the Nokia brand, has globally started rolling out the latest Android Oreo operating system (OS) for Nokia 3.

HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, announced the Nokia 3 will begin to receive the Android Oreo software update from today. Other Nokia devices like Nokia 8, Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 already updated to the latest version of Android. To recall, the smartphone had been launched back at MWC 2017, before being brought to India in June of the same year. Back in December, the company said that it will skip the Android 7.1.2 Nougat update for Nokia 3 and will directly roll-out Android Oreo.
