Android Software 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 16/05/2019. 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.

Mate 9 is 9.01?

Really? Has anybody actually received it? Huawei firmware finder respository says it's not yet available..

The May security update for Samsung S9 and S10 devices is great.

 

When can we expect anything for the Note 8? Primarily this security fix is supposed to resolve an issue that Cisco VPN clients have with Android 9.0. It's currently crippled my ability to have any work related apps on my phone.

 

Proposed schedule / timeline for Note 8? Hopefully by the end of this month?

So I wonder if Huawei/Optus will be compensating handset owners if this happens.

[Updated: Confirmation] Google to cease all business with Huawei, to pull access to Play Store, Google apps and Android updates

 

So can we get early termination of our contracts?

I was wondering why the Android 9 update won't process OTA. 

Same with Vodafone..
