According to an executive from HMD Global, the company which produces Nokia smartphones, all the three smartphones are set to receive Android 8.0 update by the end of the year.

The three devices are kept at an ultra-competitive price range which makes it all the way interesting to see them getting the latest Android update. Nokia 3, which is the cheapest smartphone out of the lot is the biggest shock of them all.

Normally, smartphones at such a price point are left out when it comes to pushing out the latest software as it costs the companies a lot to develop the software updates for them.

The fact that Nokia 3, Nokia 5, and Nokia 6 are running on Stock Android go in their favor and is one of the reasons as to why the company is considering to roll out an update for them.

This will definitely be a turning point for the devices as this will help them stand out from the rest of the competition at this price point.
