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 22/01/2018. 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.

No update next week until you have the S8+ and S8 Oreo update for testing and please harp at Samsung Australia and overseas for the update.

 I emailed Samsung. They have no idea why optus aren't pushing the monthly updates out in a timely manner as other carriers are.

 

Optus care to comment ?

 

Its Feb 2018. Last official update I received was October 2017. Not bad for high end phone....

Hi. My toothbrush requires v7.1.1 on Galaxy S7 to operate bluetooth. How is a toothbrush ahead of Optus software releases? Is there an eta on 7.1.1 or later?

Same old reasons.....

 

They're still "testing" new security updates.... (Despite Samsung doing a "huh?" face as other carriers have been way better at keeping the MONTHLY updates flowing).

 

You'd have to go a long way to convince me these updates (and the Oreo update) is being held back due to impending S9 release..... So yeah, go buy a flagship phone but unless it's running stock Android, forget about updates and patches!

 

Back to Google for next phone.

Hmm...

 

Just seen there has been an official / leak of the Oreo update with Feb security patch released. Just need to flash to stock blq1 and then run update script over the top, using Odin

 

I might give that a blast tonight if I can find my usb > usbC cable!

Just looking at the list above, I can see that the Mate 9 is up to EMUI 7.0 and is slated to get 8 late March maybe.

 

Mine is still sitting at EMUI 5 while there was even a 5.1 and then right up to 7???

 

It constantly says "No updates" and I am left wondering what the hell is going on.
