Its September month of 2018 passed,
& Nokia 3 (2017) yet not getted the monthly Security patch & Oreo 8.1 update, While Nokia 3.1 (2018) getted September security patch & Oreo 8.1 update also, wheres HMDs promise of pure-secure & up to date, that's only their slogan which is not in reality, they are ignoring older devices, they only promotes them up to end the stock of devices, once theirs stock of old devices ended, they ignores them
Sad news for Nokia 3 & 2 users it Quarter 4 of 2018, But yet they haven't the latest Android Oreo 8.1 in their phones, many other Android one phones like Moto G5s & G5 plus, Mi A1 & A2 also updated to Oreo 8.1
If Nokia is planing for Android 9.0 in nokia 3, why they waste their time in making Android 8.1.0 beta version and then an official Android 8.1.0 ,then after a few days they will give 9.0 update.
That's all we can observe Nokia's strategy over their low end device.
We've to wait until the January month of 2019.
