Android Software Updates.pngWhen 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 info on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 28/10/2016. If no info 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 & 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, where it’s made available for a small number of users (5% for example) initially. If no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll be gradually made available to more & more users over a period of a couple of weeks.

 Is there a chance VoLTE be enabled on the Galaxy Note 5 as well?  It seems the older Galaxy S6 will be upgraded soon.

Hey @Vinz, we don't have specific info regarding if the Note 5 will receive the update for VoLTE however it's likely. The aim is to continue to add capability to other devices in the list and expand our VoLTE footprint
