Android Software Updates 29/08/2017

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 29/08/2017. 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.

whenever google lonched new android version with latest security updates, everyone wants to update thier phone just because of that no buddy  wants to live with the old technology. So now it's just a matter of getting my phone company to play nice with my provider and get me the dang updates! *Orio MOTO/Verizon*

if my cellphone company provide me this new update of android i'll be thankful. Smiley Happy

Received android 7.0 update on my p9 (and emui 5.0) last Wednesday, 6/sep. All good so far, in fact looks very good.

 However, my partner also has a p9 ( liked mine so much), but no update  for hers as yet.

I guess we just have to wait and see.

Rec'd Aug 2017 security update for my S8 today. Build # is G950XXU1AQH3, which is the latest available globally from 8/8/2017. So it seems Optus are pushing these through far quicker than before which is a good result. Smiley Wink

Can someone confirm that the Galaxy A5 (2017) is in fact SM-520F model?
Optus chat was hopeless.

As much as i hate optus i really dont believe it will take that long for android p to arrive. This is because if u look at optus' track record the mate 9 recieved android 8 in around mid march of this year. I expect the mate 10 recieve android 9 at around march of 2019
