Latest Android 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 22/11/2018. 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.

I have the Xperia Z5 Premium. I last updated it in July 2017 with 7.0. Current version is 7.1, but it appears Optus has forgotten about this phone. My contract ends in March, but Optus won't let me upgrade to the Pixel 3 to take advantage of Google's updates, instead making me pay out an obsolete product .

Hi @ natjen09 - Apologies for any inconvenience caused. With regards to the next available firmware update, we have to wait for the manufacturer to send us the software upgrade so that we can test it and at this point we are still waiting for it. Please click here for the process.

"Some carriers may choose not to... update"

 

I'll eat my hat if you're still working on the update 18 months later. This link, from Sony themselves, seems to suggest they have distributed the update to carriers. So, I'd rather Optus was honest, and admitted that it's not going to update the phone.

Hi @ natjen09 - Apologies again but we do update any updates and as soon as we receive them form the manufacturer.

Yeah that'll happen when you sign a 24mth contract they tend to hold you to it.

Appreciate you trying to get out a contract, was going to try too, but wont bother. My phone htc u11 has had only 1 update since I purchased it. Its now on nov 17 security level. It is shame companies dont get held to account on this. Its probably more of htc issue than optus.

What about adding the Huawei mate 20 Pro to the list.

I've got a galaxy s8. When will my phone actually receive the update as I'm still waiting??? I can see the next update says complete but I've checked every day since this last update was posted. Thanks.

Still no listings for the Huawei mate 20 Pro, I'm seeing reports in xda developers that novNovem patch has hit many countries already, with lots of fixes for known bugs and improvements.

 

Come on Optus, pull your finger out.

And especially after the problems the Mate 20 had at launch don't also keep us waiting for updates
