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  25/05/2018. 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.

Wait, so the S6 is getting 7.1 and Samsung Experience 8.5? If that's true, I'm hyped

Gah, I'm sorry @CloudedFlower42

 

I've had to go in and edit that one. The 7.1.1 update is for the Galaxy J2 pro. 

We're still at 7.0 for the GS6 range at this stage.

 Sadly, it's still no info for S7 Oreo update.

Just read the news saying the Korea is getting Oreo update.

Still no news about the mate 10 Pro, that's not cool.

Massive update for my A5 - around 2 gig in size. Can't wait to see what's new when it finally finishes downloading...

@Itsmoe Sorry we haven't received any information about the Mate 10 Pro yet. We'll let you know as soon as we get an update.

 

@DCCC At this stage it's not something we've started testing I'm afraid.

I don't think I'll ever buy a Samsung again.  I got the $1249 S7 Edge and it's still stuck on 7.0. I recently got a new plan with the $379 Oppo A73 and already it's on 7.1.1.

 

Even the $500 Samsung A5 has 8.0, what's the point of buying flagship phones when companies like Samsung refuse to update them once a newer model comes out?

 

Think I'll stick with cheap phones in future. .

It's all Optus fault. I have installed the unbranded rom on mine and I have been updated to Oreo over 2 months ago.

 

Install the global rom and you'll be good to go. All these testing these guys do are useless as I've never had any issues running the global rom.

Itsmoe, do I need to wipe my phone when flashing OREO firmware with UK region code? Or can I just flash on top with ODIN as usual and will boot without issues?
