The update comes over two years after HMD Global launched the Nokia 3.1 in India. The 5.2-inch HD display smartphone featured 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of onboard storage which can be expanded to 256 GB via a microSD card. Powered by a 2,990 mAh battery, the phone went live in India for Rs 10,499.

When Google announced its Android 10 in 2019, HMD Global had soon announced that Nokia handsets would be getting the update in the fourth quarter of 2019.

A detailed road map was revealed in December but plans had to be changed later due to the novel coronavirus. The Finnish mobile phone company then announced that all the Nokia 3.1 devices will be getting the update in the latter half of 2020. HMD Global's Chief Product Officer Juho Sarvikas tweeted saying that their schedule had undergone some changes due to the pandemic but they were working on releasing the Android 10 soon.
