The original Nokia 3 came preinstalled with Android Nougat and even though it has since been upgraded to Android Oreo, it took quite some time before this happened. The long wait has occasionally been blamed on the MediaTek chipset that powers the phone, but looking at the latest developments, this might not be a solid reason to stick to.

We do know that the OG Nokia 3 is still among the devices to receive the update to Android 9 Pie. But looking at the time it took to roll out Oreo, we may be looking at another long wait right? Well, it doesn’t seem so, at least based on the tweet below.

The assumption here is that the tweet also has the listed phones’ variants in mind, meaning the Nokia 3.1 should also receive the update to Android 9 Pie alongside the OG Nokia 3 somewhere in Q4 2018.
