Android Software Updates - 06/11/2017

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 06/11/2017. 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.

Another month and another post missing all information regarding xz premium. P. S. Optus you're 3mth behind on security updates

Any ETA for the Android O on the Note 8? Rumour has it that it should be around Q1 next year?

Ever since I went on my filipino holiday over new years and put a globe sim in my Sony Xperia Z5 E6653, optus updates are irrelevant... Yesterday my phone updated to Android 7.1.1 build 32.4.A.1.54 and it is running quite smooth without freezes with a very noticeable prolonged battery life... I have no idea why my phone updates so far ahead considering I put my optus sim back in before the end of January but you should be ashamed at your lies about being so far behind every other telco around the world optus... Can't wait for my plan to finish in 5 months

You would think the Sony Xperia XZ Premium would at least be listed by now? Oreo is already being rolled out on stock roms. Can we get an ETA?

Since Optus can't even list the Xperia XZ Premium I gave up.

 

I went ahead and flashed mine to a generic ROM.

Seems great so far.

I think I might flash my XZ Premium too, since Optus seems to inept or out of the loop to provide timely updates. It'd be nice if they took their inability to keep Android devices update to date as a sign to just stop jumping in the middle.

Hi Team, 

 

Any word on when and if Oreo will be coming to the S7?

Anyone notice that they sneakily added XZ Premium into the list but haven't updated the edited date

When is the next security patch for Samsung s7 I'm still on the August patch, it's clear to me that you don't care about your customers security and because of that I will be switching to a new telco at the end of my contact.

Hey @Lando, we'd usually advise that the software update is in its testing phase or at least in its initial stages of testing. If we haven't made mention of this so far then in all likelihood it will be released next year. In saying that, I'll reach out to our product team and confirm whether that is the case. @BOOD3R, I'll be sure to also ask when we can expect the next security patch for S7, S8 and Note 8 handsets. I'll comment back here once I have more info.

Any tips or advice on removing the pre-installed bloatware which cannot be uninstalled or disabled by default?

@slfepnipl A custom ROM, the beauty of Android. Or you Pixel device.

 @Lando,

 

I'm still waiting on a response from our product team. I've trawled through a number of Android forums and it looks like beta testing for Android O is currently live however that's in the UK. The official non-Optus release is scheduled for early next year. I'd say that we still have a few months to go until testing commences with Optus.
