Nokia 3 confirmed to receive Android Oreo beta update soon

Nokia 3 is the smartphone under HMD's lineup of phones to feature a MediaTek processor. Earlier, the Finnish company had said that Nokia 3 would get the Oreo update later than other Nokia phones because it is powered by a MediaTek chipset. A few other Nokia phones such as the Nokia 6 and Nokia 5 are already running the Oreo beta, which was released about a month ago.

Sarvikas further announced that the entry-level Nokia 2 will be updated to Oreo as well. However, it will directly receive the Android 8.1 Oreo with Android Go memory optimizations since the handset features just 1GB of RAM.

Last year, HMD had promised Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 users that they would get the stable Oreo update by the end of 2017. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. When a Nokia 6 user raised this issue on Twitter, the company replied by saying that they want to make sure that users are provided with the best experience.

This suggests, the company is still finding bugs in the beta version of Android Oreo for the Nokia 5 and Nokia 6. In any case, looking at how things are developing, it won't be long before both the smartphones are updated with Oreo. The flagship Nokia 8 smartphone also received the Android 8.1 Oreo beta update recently and it is expected to receive the stable version soon.

HMD Global, however, is currently the center of attraction for a different reason. The company is all set to launch a series of new smartphones on February 25 and it has already sent out invites for the same. It is believed, HMD will unveil the flagship Nokia 9, Android Oreo (Go Edition) based Nokia 1, Nokia 3310 4G variant. Additionally, the company may also announce the global launch of the Nokia 6 (2018) at the event.
