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 26/09/2017. 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.

What has happened to the Samsung S6 7.0 update? It was stated as early September and then removed without any information.

Hey davidnicolle, I can confirm the update was for the S6 Edge and not the S6. We don't have info at this stage on the S6 update. Stay tuned for updates.

Android 8 was released by Sony yesterday for XZ Premium and other devices.

 

It's not even listed in your updates note.

 

When will it be released by Optus?

Any idea when the "flagship" Samsung S8+ will progress from the August update. Samsung advise there have been no issues with the September or October updates so I can't understant why these can't be pushed OTA.

 

 

Dare I even ask about the Android O update.... ?
