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 09/05/2017. 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.

@Aman_B, That's a shame that Optus still can't get VoLTE working for the S6. I was hoping to give the technology a try as I doubt I'll be with Optus come the end of my contract in July.

I have asked Optus a number of times why they have not updated the Samsung Galaxy J1 model SM-J100Y This Optus sold J1, has not received any update to android from version 4.4 to Lollipop 5.1. Samsung replies that their latest J1, which is model number (SM-J120ZZDNXSA) is capable of android 5.1 .Optus continually advises me, that the updates are provided by Samsung, and thus I should ask Samsung when a new version will be available.I have now received an email from Samsung, and they say it is the provider, Optus , whom should release new software. Whom am I to believe?

@Jack_gecko the version is 

32.3.a.0.376 

 

So it's older version,  I was hoping it would've been the newer version. Yet too install it still through.

 

Thanks 

Erik

@Erik17

Build number does indeed end in .376 however the features your quoting for the newer build seemed to of been released already unless Sony has found more issues of the same which I can see in software update history in my phone

Hi did an update go out for Samsung S6 Edge recently, my phone updated and now my screen is VERY white...its like one of the shaders has gone crazy. Ive cleared cache and things and still unbearable to read the screen for more than a few minutes.

I know it says "7.0 update – Estimated testing completion mid to late May" for the Galaxy S6, but it's 25 May and I think that's late enough - don't you?
