Nokia 3 is a low-end device of HMD which is currently available in Pakistan in PKR 14,000 only. Previously, HMD announced an Android Oreo beta program for the Nokia 3, which would allow owners of the smartphone to test the update before it gets released to the general public. And now the update will gradually roll out to all countries.
Software rollouts are a phased process so the timing of Android upgrades will vary by country and operator. Please check with your local mobile operator or sales distributor channel.

HMD is providing superfast Android updates, probably because it doesn’t have so many smartphones available on the market like other brands like Samsung, LG, Motorola, Sony, etc. The last addition to the list of smartphone updated to Android Oreo is the Nokia 3.
Meanwhile, HMD has also recently released five new Nokia branded smartphones including Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 plus and Nokia 6 (2018) with Android Oreo OS and Nokia 1 with Android Oreo (Go edition) in India.
