Nokia 3 Gets Android 7.1.1 Nougat Update

Android Nougat seems to be slowly, but surely rolling out to most of the devices that it promised to come to in the beginning. This might seem a bit tardy, but we assure that there are still plenty of Android devices out there that can potentially support the update, but that are missing out on it entirely. So the fact that the Nokia 3 will get Android 7.1.1 Nougat by the end of August is a miracle.

However, it needs to be noted that the Nokia 3, alongside the 5 and 6 that are also getting the update, has been running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. So this is just a minor system update for this type of device, and not a massive game changer. Still, it seems a bit odd that Android O is one month from its launch and there are still Nougat updates going around. It seems even odder when one considers that Nokia has vouched that all their new devices will get Android O by the start of 2018.

That’s a pretty bold statement to make, so can Nokia hold up to it? Well, yes, and so can any other company that’s made it in the past or will make it in the near future. Why is that? We all know that Android notoriously rolls out at a sluggish speed, so something must have changed. The one to thank is Google’s ambitious Project Treble, which innovated the over the air rollout process for the Android mobile operating system.

This change will be in effect as of Android O onwards, and it was made possible by putting an end to the coding fragmentation that stood behind this tediously slow rolling out process. We can’t wait for Android O, even though it might be called Octopus.
