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  07/05/2018. 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.

I would just like to know when the android 8.1 update for the mate 10 pro is coming, I hope the long time since the last update is because Optus are waiting on that.

I've checked our device report and I'm afraid there isn't any new info on the Tab 3. We'll keep you posted.

Ah, sorry @Itsmoe, I didn't mean to ignore you. I haven't received any information in regard to the Mate 10 Pro camera fix you've linked. 

We're due for another update in a weeks time. Hopefully we have some more info available then. 

 

If the update isn't mentioned in the report, I'll gladly reach out to our product team and ask whether they've received a new MR.

@AndrewTran, the clock on the lock screen can adapt to the background colour. You can change this in the clock and face widgets setrings in the lock screen and security section of settings.

I can probably guess Oreo 8.0 for the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is coming either this or next month right?

It's hard to say at this stage @Benjamen50

 

Samsung did suspend the rollout of 8.0 for the S7 family of devices, but as of yesterday it's resumed. 

There was an issue causing the handset to unexpectedly reboot.  

 

As always, I'll update the blog as more information comes our way.
