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 the  05/07/2018. 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.

Hi there, 

Just wondering when the face unlock update for the mate 10 pro will be coming through?

Love the phone and also will optus be testing the 8.1 update anytime soon or will Huawei just push it out?

G'day @truckerdave0483. no word yet I'm afraid.

 

It looks like the update was made available to non-carrier based variants of the Mate 10. We'll update the blog as soon as we have more info Smiley Happy
