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  01/08/2018. 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.

Still minor fix for mate 10 pro. Even the date is not confirmed yet.Others received far more feature updates and we still stuck in minor bug fixes. It is waste of money to buy a phone from optus. Big mistake I did.

Im on the same boat HML I contacted updates support and they said the face unlock will be coming in this upcoming update. Biggest regret was to buy an optus branded phone. The updates are at least 3 months behind. Get your game up OPTUS!!!!!! Huawei is doing a very great job upgrading features including face unlock, improved night mode, GPU turbo and 960 fps slowmo but at this rate its gonna take f***king forever.

 Did they say any time frame for upcoming update? If not I will sell this and get a unlocked dual sim version.

Hey guys, 

 

Simply put - If there’s no information in our latest software updates table then we haven't yet received an update from the manufacture (in this case Huawei) to begin the testing process. 

 

As soon information is made available, we'll be sure to include an update in upcoming blog.

@HML well in the livechat with the optus technical person they confirmed that face unlock is coming with the update TBC. Reading on XDA developers the australian unlocked version dual sim version has already got improved night mode shot AKA its one update ahead of the optus version. I bought my optus branded mate 10 pro from  allphones off a 20% off ebay deal would of bought the dual sim version had it not been out of stock. That being said i wouldnt sell it id rather save the money for mate 20 pro (heard its gonna be a beast). But lesson learnt carrier branded phones are utter garbage

@Dan_C

Then why does the description say testing in progress? From memory its been the same description for the last two android updates blog. Might as well say nothing if you guys have no news on updates. Checking the Vodafone updates their MAte 10 is currently going through testing as well. I expect both phones to finish at relatively the same time.

I have been in contact with Huawei directly, they called me tonight and said Android 8.1/Emui 8.1 is available in Australia for mate 10 pro but Optus hasn’t finished testing it or whatever the hell they are doing...

Huawei P10 pro, Current firmware 8.0.0 does not allow the forwarding photographs from the message app, has error message " maximum length reached" and the photo can not be forwarded. Tried the same message on my 2 year old P6 with version 8.1.0 and the forward function works. Need to sort this out quickly as this is a function i use all the time and my older phone with the newer firmware is quite capable of these functions. Been going backwards and forwards with Optus and Huawei for the last 5 weeks , phone went in for repair and came back with the same issue total waste of my  time Optus support staff and Huewei staff trying to time find the issue, after 5 weeks Huawei admitted that there was bugs in the old firware (8.0.0) and it doent matter how many times it goes of for repair as it firmware related. T%he only fix for this phone is a firmware update which was presented to Optus in July and Optus still will not realse this firmware.

Yea man.. Australian dual Sim version already got the Gpu turbo update as well. Version 8.0.0.142. We still stuck at the same old firmware without any top features.
