Latest Android updates

 

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 02/10/2018. 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.

Despite so many completed update for Mate 10 Pro, my build is still at 8.0.0.134(C34), Security patche level since 5th May 2018. Optus? care to explain to me what is going on?

Ya Finally, my not 8 just got the September security patch and with it the AR emojis and slo-mo camera.

@Melpen I'm in the same boat. I know they say that it's a progressive roll-out but it's deflating when you see others with the update whilst your stuck on the older firmware.

I'm weighing up whether to trade phone in for a pixel 3 as fitbit doesn't work quite right with the mate 10 pro as well

Still don't quite understand the idea behind a PROGRESSIVE rollout??? If testing is complete and has been for over 2 weeks why is it taking so long to push the update out to the end consumer? I really like my Mate 10 pro, probably the best phone I've ever had but the reality is that i should of bought the damn thing outright instead of signing up on another contract! My patience is wearing thin and i really hope Optus is listening to their customers loud and clear... Because I'm not the only one who is less than impressed with this scenario!

Here also waiting for the mate 10 Pro update...... It can't be that bad to finalize an update, people in other countries have had the update for over 2 months now. On top of that, my reception at home is rubbish - might have to contact the TIO again!

Whilst not Optus fault per say, but my brand new shiny one year old flagship phone nearly has a year old security patch Nov 2017 Smiley Sad

Complete silent from Optus representative? Can't Optus just let us know about the roll out date for Mate 10 pro?

And still waiting for the mate 10 update...... This is really frustrating as some people are getting Android 9 already in some counties

Heads up for Galaxy J5 Pro users - do not upgrade to 8.1.0.

 

My main Optus locked J5 Pro is now downloading at next to ZERO on 4G/3G/2G modes. Forced to set it to 3G only mode (basrely getting 2-3Mbps download most time).

 

Meanwhile my spare J5 Pro (I purchased 2 x Optus locked J5 Pro's 4 months ago) is still on 7.0 and has fast proper download speeds (40 - 70Mbps) when I place my Optus SIM from main to spare handset.

 

Have tested all this across many cells, issue persistant.

 

Optus, can you please roll back my main J5 Pro to 7.0? Or replace my phone for me?

@ed0214 let us know how you as I'm keen to do it as well.

Just received the Mate 10 Pro update! Force check for updates as I did and it was there waiting to be downloaded. 

For future reference once Optus completes the update it's Huawei role to roll out the update and they do that slowly incase people come across problems.

Mate 10 update has a couple issues. Home screen landscape mode has disappeared and ok Google command launches however when a command is given it's recognised and then says can't reach Google at the moment!
