Nokia 3 (TA-1032) Android Oreo 8.1.0 Update?

Hi everyone,

I know that the latest hype regarding OS updates goes to the upcoming Android Pie 9.0 version. However, and since that may take some time to reach all users and models, I am still waiting for the Android Oreo 8.1.0 update for my Nokia 3 (TA-1032) since my device is still on Android Oreo 8.0.0. Unless I have missed something here hahaha.


I bought the Nokia 3  as my first new Nokia Smartphone (before that I used Nokia [not Microsoft] Lumia's), if I look at my other Nokia smartphones, the Nokia 3 is the only ne which haven't gotten upgraded to Android 8.1.0 yet.

TA-1047 (Nokia 1)            - Android 8.1.0 Go Edition
TA-1029 (Nokia 2)            - Android 7.1.1 (8.1.0 Beta available)
TA-1032 (Nokia 3)            - Android 8.0.0
TA-1105 (Nokia 5.1 Plus) - Android 8.1.0

Speaking of the Nokia 2 Android Oreo 8.1.0 Beta version, I think that Nokia should opt for a Go Edition instead, because the specifications of the Nokia 2 (ROM and RAM) are in my opinion not suitable for full versions and heavy weight versions of Android. I have given the Beta a try on my Nokia 2, but it slows down the phone immensely.

So, I hope know might wanna look into that more and change to Go Edition for the Nokia 2

    Hello @aseaneous,

    At this point I am sure that Nokia is planning to upgrade Nokia 3 directly to Andoid 9.0 Pie from Oreo 8.0.0 somewhere in february or march of 2019. I assure you that you haven't missed the Oreo 8.1.0 update for Nokia 3. The Oreo 8.1.0 was never released for the Nokia 3. I don't know if you already know this but they did something similar with the Nokia 3 before. Nokia 3 was updated from Android 7.1.1 directly to Android 8.0.0 without updating it to Android 7.1.2 version. 

    The fact that Nokia 2 is still stuck in beta is really sad. Its been more than 3 months. And, I agree with you that Nokia 2 should be updated to Go Edition of Android Oreo by now which is the perfect fit for the device considering its hardware capabilities. But, I think Nokia 2 is still in beta because Nokia might be planning to directly upgrade Nokia 2 to Go edition of Android Pie. And, therefore Nokia is just waiting for the release of Android Pie Go Edition by Google. However, its just a speculation and I might be completely wrong. So far there is no news on when Nokia 2 will complete the beta stage or why was there no Go Edition for the Nokia 2.

    Hi @ Appu

    Indeed so, I have read that as well, although for the Nokia 2, I've only came across the Oreo 8.1.0 (Beta) version. Full fetched Android Pie 9.0.0 would not run well on the Nokia 2. As Wilson already mentioned, hope Nokia will bring out a Android Pie 9.0.0 Go Edition for that device :wink:

    Great Job by Nokia to update Nokia 3 to Android Oreo 8.1 before the end of the year. This update is much stable and feels a bit faster than the previous Oreo 8.0 update. And, I am not getting the camera bug that used to be in the Oreo 8.0 like forever. Moreover, the Night Light Feature has been added which was not previously present in the Oreo 8.0.

    Personally I don't recommend updating Oreo 8.1. I have updated yesterday and immediately noticed that animations are stuttering. The phone is still responsive but scrolling, and everything feels jerky, it's like the GPU is trying very hard. It's even worse in graphics-heavy apps like Google Maps.

    I suspect the culprit is probably the Night Light feature they added back, as Oreo 8.0 beta included this feature and it really slows down and stutters the whole interface while it's on (probably that's why it's removed in 8.0 stable).

    Unless you REALLY need 8.1 features (which are not really important), I recommend waiting until further fix.

    Kindly take notice for this issue, Nokia.

    I have installed the Android 8.1 update and finally it has the Night Light mode that helps me sleeps every night! Also, instead of the regular Files app, it's the Files Go app which may hint Android Pie Go Edition instead of the full version since the SoC isn't that powerful enough to run the full version of Oreo yet Pie alone

    I haven't noticed any bugs until now. Well the features are just the regular that 8.1 should contain like revamped setting menu and power button etc. But there are loads of new Google apps like Files Go, Google Sheet, Docs and Slide. I immediately disabled those since I don't use them. But the Files Go is a nice addition.

    I also updated. Just night light and some apps but my battery drainage is fast.
