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  09/04/2018. 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.

3 months since the last Huawei mate 10 pro update, the phone only came out in December and only got 1 month of updates, this is completely unacceptable.

I do believe a Mate 10 Pro update is being rolled out soon that will include the April security patch. That's what firmware Finder showed 2 days ago

Hi,

Where are the Nokia updates on this list and how are security updates controlled? I'm still sitting on the Feb 2018 security update for Nokia 8 which is the same as when I first turned on the phone.

Sure we are close to getting the April Update for Note 8.
I hope this update will fix battery consumption after Android 8.

Any security updates for the U11 inbound? I'm still on Nov 2017. I know it's not an Optus issue because they're a bit behind worldwide, but has there been any indication as to when we might see something?

We haven't received an update at this stage @Tomekkpl1.


If we do hear something, we'll be sure to update the blog.

Hey @natfu, Optus have never sold the Nokia 8 so it's not a device we support for updates. I would advise reaching out to Nokia directly.
