- Nokia 3.1 is now getting the Android 10 update in select markets.
- The Nokia 3.1 was launched in 2018 under the Android One programme.
- HMD Global recently rolled out Android 10 to a series of Nokia phones.
Nokia 3.1 is the latest Android One smartphone from the house of HMD Global to get the Android 10 version. Android One programme has many perks, which nearly all Nokia-branded phones come with, including Android upgrades for about three years. Nokia 3.1 was launched in 2018 so it has still not hit the end of the road when it comes to Android updates. The Android 10 update is rolling out to units select countries as a part of the first wave, while more markets will be covered later.
If you own a Nokia 3.1 in one of these markets, you will soon receive the Android 10 update in the first wave: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Belarus, Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Morocco, Nepal, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Tunisia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, or Vietnam. The second-wave countries have not been announced yet, but they mostly will be more mature markets, the ones where Nokia is not relatively aggressive.
Android 10 was released last year so Nokia 3.1 is around a year late to the party. While the Android One programme ensures yearly Android version updates, it is not technically clear what updates these are going to be. Ideally, Nokia 3.1 should be receiving Android 11 as the final nail in the coffin for the software updates on it, but as weird as Google's Android One programme is, it is never certain. Anyway, it is good news for Nokia 3.1 users.
To update your Nokia 3.1 to Android 10, you should:
- Go to the Settings app
- Now, navigate to About phone section
- Tap on System updates and check for the new software
- If available, you will need to manually provide authorisation for Android 10 update on your Nokia 3.1
That is all you need to do to update your phone. Make sure your phone is adequately charged and that all your data is backed up before you begin with the update process.
