Yes, the cheap Nokia 3 will enjoy continued support: Android O update confirmed for the future14
However, HMD Global, the company behind Nokia's latest resurrection, seems to be on course to break the mold. Clearly, being the new kind on the Android block, the new Nokia wants to become a fan favorite, just as Moto managed to win its following with a clean interface and timely updates.
A week ago, the Finnish company confirmed that its current cheapest device — the Nokia 3 — is on course to receive an update up to the latest Android 7.1.1 version by the end of August. And just a couple of days ago, Chief Product Officer at HMD personally replied to a fan on Twitter, confirming that the low-midrange phone will get Android O in the future, too.
There were no veiled messages. No “HMD is committed to this and that”. It's a very clear “Yes, Nokia 3 will get Android O”. Color us curious — we'd love to see HMD not only follow through on that promise, but also push the update in a timely manner, putting a lot of competitors to shame.
