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 31/01/2017. 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.

@danz207 I'm pretty positive we will be getting the new grace ux that was on the note 7. Definitely a way better interface

Hi @Rockdad83, we definitely will be, but that menu seems to only be on some Nougat updates, not all. For example, the menu is missing from UK (BTU) firmware.

Does optus also handle the XSA firmware as I've noticed that the unbranded Aussie firmware does not get released until the optus one does.

Where's the HTC 10 nougat update, are we going to see it anytime in the near future?  As I see the OTA for Australia was released as 2.41.709.3

looks like Samsung s6 etc are getting Nougat this month in Europe does Optus forget there is a such thing as Google and Google News for people to keep update with phone software or do they think we are dumb

Hey @mulishajp, you can definitely keep an eye on updates online however we need to go through our own testing on the firmware before we can release it to our customers which is why these things take a bit longer.
