When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device. The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country. Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 03/08/2017. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

It would be cool if we could also have the current security patch status for these devices included in these posts.

Whats the reason the S6 edge 7.0 update has been withdrawn yet the S6 edge plus update is going ahead?

I'll try to ask this again about the S7. It appeared a few updates ago then vanished. I installed a 28mb update this morning. Was it just a service patch? All we ask is for this page to be current and our questions answered.

Hi @Duzza, apologies for the inconvenience caused. The upgrade had to be withdrawn because further testing was required to make sure there are no issues with the software. We'll update it here once the testing is complete.

Hi @jaxon, yes that was a security patch. We do update the page regularly and as we receive new updates.

Okay, quick question. Other than the boot logo, what makes an Optus phone different from a Telstra or unlocked one? Why is there such drama when updating?

Hey @Taiotee, all the phones sold by Optus have to be tested that it works fine on the network and also with our features like Volte that use 4G. This testing is done for new phones and also when a operating system is upgraded.

I wiped the optus firmware on my GS7 Edge and installed the XSA firmware about a month ago, my phone works perfectly, with no BLOATWARE, last night i recieved the latest updates and security patches, and couldnt be happier CHEERS! https://samsung-firmware.org/

Would be good if you added all the currently offered models too. E.g Xperia xz premium isn't listed.
