The Nokia 3 (2017) was launched with Android Nougat and in April 2018 it got the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The phone will get the new features of the Android Pie such as Adaptive Brightness, Adaptive Battery, Digital Wellbeing and more. However, it’s still not known if the phone will get the gesture navigation feature or not.
It’s a global update and will be released in phases, so initially, it’ll be available only to a small number of users. A wider rollout is expected in the coming days.
