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 16/02/2017. 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.

Was hoping for the update for HTC 10 to be pushed out during the week, but decided to manually update with some free time today. So far runs real smooth. Will report back if any issues arise.

@Optus,

 

The S6 Nougat update is rolling out elsewhere around the world. When you do think you'll commence testing, let alone think about releasing it?

Hi @Missrippa, cheers for that, but do you represent Optus? I'm looking for an official response out of @Optus

@tolga hi. No im not an employee of either optus or samsung. Just an annoyed customer trying to find out when we will get nougat. I downloaded the security patch that was pushed to our phones a couple of days ago and now my phone is freezing constantly and getting very hot.  I was trying to get nougat to see if it will fix the problem  or if I'll need to start over with a new non samsung phone . Its a bit ridiculous that it takes so long to get the software update from when google officially released it over 8 months ago

So there is nothing to report on Android Software Updates since 16 Feb?  Come on people, this is not customer service.

 

I read LAST WEEk that telcos in the UK & Europe are rolling out the Nougate update for Samsung Galaxy S6.

 

This means that the delay - as posted in the 16 Feb update - was resolved some time ago.  These telcos would do similar testing to Optus.

 

So they have done their testing and are rolling it out.

 

And what have we from Optus... [insert audio of crickets chirping here...]

 

You have to lift you game, please!!!

Hi all,

 

A new update has just been posted here. I've now locked this thread so please head over to our latest blog for any questions you may have. Please note the following according to our latest update:

 

HTC 10 - Testing for the 7.0 update has been completed and the update approved as of today (14/03/17) however is still required to be distributed by HTC and this doesn't occur immediately

 

Samsung S6 and S6 Edge - We're testing the March security update for 6.0.1 but are not currently testing an update for Nougat

 

Samsung S7 and S7 Edge - The 7.0 update has begun rolling out so if you haven't received it yet but would like to, you should check for the latest update via your phones settings but note the download amount and possible excess data charges if updated of our mobile/cellular network
