Android Software Updates 13/09/2017

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 13/09/2017. 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.

The recent security update bricked my Galaxy S7 Edge on Thursday. My phone worked for an hour after the update and then it crashed, went through numerous reboot cycles before refusing to respond to any button-commands.

I just recieved an update for my HTC 10 and at no time was it ever listed on the update table!

You still haven't listed the Huawei P10 after a month of it being available.  I received one update to B150 but I believe there are serveral more availble from Huawei and B164 is the current version.

Received the 7.0 update for the Galaxy A5 (2017). Seems rock solid so far and an excellent improvement on performance.

Note 5 running 7.0 and has received two further updates - one today - still showing 6.0.1
How will I know what today's update is? Is it bug fixes? What's the change?

Thanks for reaching out, @dalej. Are you able to send us a screenshot of the software prompt on your handset via PM here.

wow Xperia XZ Premium isn't even on the list. I don't even think I have got an update since I got it. I know for a fact that unbranded AU models have and they are on Sony's latest release. Any news on when we will see an update for this phone?

Hey @andrewjack016, did you purchase your handset from a 3rd party retailer? We don't stock the Motorola Moto E4 so we won't be releasing any software upgrades for that model.

Hi @Xalies, no news on the Xperia XZ Premium yet, please keep an eye on the blog for updates.
