These not only include high-end or mid-range phones but also the entry-level budget devices. One such device is the Nokia 3 which is now receiving the much-awaited Android 9 Pie update.
The Nokia 3 was unveiled in 2017 and it marked the arrival of Nokia phones in the market. It was released with entry-level specifications and Android Nougat on the software front. It was updated to Android Oreo a year later and now within two years of release, it is being updated to the latest Android Pie. It means HMD Global has kept its promise of guaranteed software updates for two years which is something most Android OEMs fail to deliver.
