Nokia 3.1 is the latest Android One smartphone from HMD Global to have Android 10 version. The Android One program has many advantages, which almost all Nokia phones are equipped with, including Android updates for about three years. Nokia 3.1 launched in 2018, so it hasn’t reached the end of the road yet when it comes to Android updates. The Android 10 update is available for select units in countries as part of the first wave, while other 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, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Tunisia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan or Vietnam. The second wave countries have not yet been announced, but mostly they will be more mature markets, the ones where Nokia is not relatively aggressive.
Android 10 was released last year, so Nokia 3.1 is about a year late for the party. Although the Android One program grants annual Android version updates, it’s not technically clear what the updates will be. Ideally, the Nokia 3.1 should receive Android 11 as the final nail in the coffin for software updates on it, but as strange as Google’s Android One program is, it’s never certain. Still, that’s good news for Nokia 3.1 users.
To update your Nokia 3.1 to Android 10, you should:
- Go to the Settings app
- Now go to the About Phone section
- Tap System Updates and check for new software
- If available, you will need to manually give permission to update to Android 10 on your Nokia 3.1
This is all you need to do to update your phone. Make sure your phone is properly charged and all your data is backed up before starting the update process.
