As per the Android bulletin changelog, the June 2020 security update primarily fixes a host of vulnerabilities. One of the exploits could have enabled a local malicious application to bypass the operating system protections that separate application data files. It also fixes an arbitrary code within the context of Kernel components.

HMD Global is rolling out the OTA update in phases. Hence, it could take a while before reaching all the Nokia 3.1 units gradually. Users will get a notification to download the update automatically. Alternatively, users can also manually check for the update by going to the settings menu section on the device.
