Yesterday, HMD Global celebrates one year as the new home of Nokia phones. If you own a Nokia 3, you will be happy too. As Juho Sarvikas (Chief Product Officer) tweeted today, It will skip the Android 7.1.2 on the Nokia 3 and immediately deliver the Android 8 Oreo.
Thanks! We will transition straight to Oreo

In September, it was already confirmed that the Nokia 3, 5, 6 and 8 get Android Oreo, since they are still delivered with Android 7. In October, the 7.1.2 was delayed but was still in the test phase. But now it will skip Android 7.1.2 Nougat update to directly update to Android Oreo. This has been revealed by HMD CPO Juho Sarvikas in reply to a tweet.
HMD Global has already achieved a lot in this first year. One can be curious if it goes on with the Nokia now so cheerfully. Android Oreo is a significant update that brings many new features and also a number of improvements in the Android user experience.
