The Nokia 3 and Nokia 8, with the update, receive a fix for a critical security vulnerability in the Media framework.

Launched in February 2017, the Nokia 3 sports a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) IPS display. The phone is powered by a MediaTek MT6737 SoC, coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage. The phone sports an 8-megapixel front and an 8-megapixel rear camera.

 

Meanwhile the Nokia 8, which launched in August 2017, packs a 5.3-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) IPS display and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC, coupled with 4GB RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. The highlight of the phone – which bears 13-megapixel sensors on the front and back – is its ‘bothie’ feature, which lets you capture footage from the rear and front cameras at the same time.
