This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on May 18, 2020) follows:

It’s only a few days ago that the stable Nokia 3.1 Plus Android 10 update started rolling out. Matter of fact, the OS has yet to reach quite a good number of device owners in various parts of the world.

In the official announcement post, HMD Global mentioned that Android 10 will roll out to the Nokia 3.1 Plus in waves. Today, May 18, the update should reach all units in the markets included in the first wave of the rollout.

10% of all these approved markets will receive the Update today. 50% by May 16th and on the May 18th 100% of these approved markets will have received Android 10.

We will update this post when Wave 2 is on roll out.

The second wave should begin this week, but Nokia hasn’t confirmed the date. But as it stands, you might want to count yourself lucky in case your Nokia 3.1 Plus hasn’t received the update to Android 10 yet.

As per the latest reports, it appears there is a Nokia 3.1 Plus notification issue after Android 10 that is frustrating owners of the device. Apparently, notifications aren’t popping up as usual, but they show up once affected apps are opened.

So far, reports indicate that affected apps include WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and probably several more. Considering the numbers behind these apps, Nokia will have to act fast and fix this issue before the second wave of the rollout begins.

It’s likely the Nokia 3.1 Plus notification issue after Android 10 update isn’t the only one device owners are experiencing, but this one definitely looks widespread going by the many reports popping up in the official Nokia community and other platforms.

HMD hasn’t acknowledged the bug yet, so we can’t really tell if and when it will be addressed. We will keep an eye on the developments and update this story when the fix is released.

The Nokia 3.1 Plus Android 10 update rollout now leaves only a handful of Nokia devices still on Pie. For more details of which devices have received the OS, check out our Nokia Android 10 update tracker.

Update 1 (August 27)

While Nokia released the Android 10 update for Nokia 3.1 Plus back in May this year, it brought in several issues and as a result the update was halted. A section of users were able to update their devices, however, the majority of users could not install the update and are still running Android 9 Pie.

Nokia has been rolling out security patches in the meantime but majority of users are still awaiting re-release of the Android 10 update. We are keeping track of the developments and will keep you posted of any further updates. Read full story here.
