It was made official in November that OnePlus would be updating its current-gen flagship handsets to Android Nougat by the end of 2016. OnePlus has kept true to that promise as Carl Pei (CEO of OnePlus) confirmed that the company has managed to release the final stable version of the OS on 31st December, 2016. The Oxygen OS v4.0 firmware based on Nougat 7.0 is now live and rolling out to OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones around the world via OTA.

Some of the changes that this update will bring to the two devices include the following.
Improved shelf customization
Redesigned notification menu and settings overlay
The ability to reply to messages from the notifications menu
The ability to change icons in the status bar
Multi-window support
Support for custom DPI
Quick Launch for third-party applications

Available only to the OnePlus 3 earlier, the Open Beta 1 program is now also available to the OnePlus 3T, as announced by the OEM. If you want, the beta firmware is available for downloading and flashing manually onto your OnePlus 3/3T, but keep in mind that this will make your device a part of OnePlus's beta release cycle and the subsequent OTA updates will keep coming accordingly. If you don't want that then just wait a few days until the official, stable version arrives for your smartphone.

The Desire 820 was released back in 2014 and it's good to see that HTC has not abandoned it yet. The smartphone just started to receive an update package Over The Air which will not only bring Android 6.0.1 to the smartphone, but will also upgrade the Sense UI to v7.0, post installation. This is good news but we are not yet sure as to which regions the update is covering at this moment. In fact, the news came as quite a surprise and was reported first by GSM Arena after being tipped off by Rupak Thapa.

If you are using a HTC Desire 820 and have not been notified about the update yet, check for it manually. Go to Settings, tap on About device at the bottom and just select Check for updates. If the results are negative and you do not see a prompt to update your handset, there is still no need to fret. OTA updates are always rolled out in phases, meaning that all HTC Desire 820 smartphones cannot receive the update at the same time. Nonetheless, it only takes a few days before all the phases begin to roll out so just keep checking.

HTC One M9


Good News for M9 users, Mo Versi, HTC's VP of product management announced via his twitter account that AT&T HTC One M9 Android 5.1 Lollipop update will start rolling-out OTA (Over-the-air) today.



HTC's Android 5.1 update will pack data performance, call drop enhancements, various bug fixes and Battery life improvements.


Even more importantly, the camera of the HTC One M9 has received a number of optimizations with the update. The temperature management of the device has also been tweaked in order handle that Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset better.


Although the Galaxy S8 and S8+ have not been released to the public yet, they are apparently receiving their first OTA updates. The updates contain the Android security patch for the month, but more interestingly, has the "fix" which takes away the ability to remap the Bixby hardware button from both devices. It wasn't easy to begin with as you had to install a third party app to get it done, but post the update, it just won't be possible anymore unless you decide to root your brand new device. The build numbe on the two updates are G950FXXU1AQDD (S8) and G955FXXU1AQDD (S8+) .

As of now, the update is only hitting the review units and pre-release handsets probably, since the two smartphones are not yet available for purchase anywhere. However, what this does mean is that if you do decide to buy any of the two handsets or if you have pre-ordered any one of them, the April security patch will be waiting for you, along with the Bixby Button reprogramming limitation patch as soon as you switch on your phone for the first time. Get that Wi-Fi ready and start getting to know Bixby I guess!

Nexus 6


Carriers-locked phones are a Pain in the matter regarding of software updates, Not if you own a Nexus smartphone. Google has just release Android 5.1 Lollipop and updates the unlocked Nexus 6 users around the world, its turn for the carrier's version.


Now, AT&T customers with the Nexus 6 have started to see the update offered to their device. Carrying build number LMY47D, the same build that is currently being pushed out to the Nexus 5. The Update carries many bug fixes and performance enhancements.



Note 3 Neo lollipop


Few months ago, SamsungUK has confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo (SM-N750) will get the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, However, in these past few months we didn't see any Lollipop firmware entering the testing or development process so far.


Now, SamsungUK is still confirming that the Note 3 Neo is indeed getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update as soon as it is ready... which will take a long time since the firmware has NOT entered the "In-Development" stage yet.



It's not clear whether the device will receive an Android 5.0.2 or 5.1.1 firmware build, we will keep you updated regarding this matter so stay tuned and keep your eyes on the official Samsung Updates Page.


If you already have Android 6 running on your Galaxy S5 in India, then your device is probably powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801. The Snapdragon variant was released in India following a few months post the original release of the Galaxy S5, which was powered by the Exynos 5422. After rolling out the Marshmallow update to the Snapdragon version, Samsung has now started to update its Exynos variant of the S5 with the same.

There are two ways that users in India can download and install the update; the first one is of course, Over The Air or OTA. You should soon see a notification, prompting you to download the package, as soon as it arrives on your smartphone. Although every smartphone will not receive the update at the same time, you can always check from Settings > About device > Check for updates to be sure. The second method of updating involves connecting your phone to your PC via Samsung Smart Switch. Your PC must have an active internet connection to complete the entire process. Did you install it yet?

Android Marshmallow has finally arrived for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 on AT&T and it brings familiar features such as Doze Mode, Google Now on Tap, customizable app permissions and an overall better performance to the tablet. However we really liked NumberSync in particular, which is exclusive to the AT&T users. If you are lucky enough to own a Tab S2 from AT&T, the NumberSync functionality will now allow you to use your tablet as a phone and you will be able to make calls from it even when your smartphone is not near the device.

We suggest the use of Wi-Fi for downloading the update when it arrives on your tablet and you are auto-notified. Alternately of course, feel free to check for the update manually by going into Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates. Once you are notified about the update and you are done with the download, there should be at least 70% - 80% battery left on your Tab S2 before you start upgrading to Android M. After the upgrade, your phone's Baseband version should now change to T817AUCU2BPF2 and the base Android version should show Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

If you own a Galaxy S6 Edge+ or a Note 5 on the Verizon network, you will soon receive a notification prompting you to update your smartphone. There is a good chance that you have already been notified, but even if you hadn't, you will be very soon. Alternatively, one can always check manually by going into Settings >About device > Check for updates.

The post Marshmallow update includes both security patches and general bug fixes, in addition to overall improvements. Notably, the misleading "No SIM card detected" error often encountered on the Note 5 will be fixed. You can also expect improved audio routing for better experience in call quality during both voice and video calls on the two smartphones.

In other news, Verizon's version of the LG G5 is simultaneously receiving an update via OTA as well. Unfortunately though, the monthly security patches have not been included in that update. It was mentioned in the change-log that the package will bring "enhancements for Visual Voice Mail, Airplane Mode and reporting Microsoft Exchange Active Server data usage." Hopefully, another update will be rolled out with the necessary security patches soon enough.

If you live in Europe and you have a Galaxy A5 (2016), you should be notified about a new update anytime now. As you can probably guess already, this is the package that contains the Android SMR package for the month of October, as well as custom fixes from Samsung. The update isn't a particularly large one at just about 20MB, but this is an important patch nevertheless. According to the changelog accompanying the update, this will address a particular critical security hole in the A5's software. Details about this particular vulnerability were not mentioned in the changelog to stop hackers from exploiting it.

If you have not been prompted for the update yet, feel free to check from Settings > About phone > Software update manually. Even if you do not see the update right away, don't worry as it will take a while before all the batches are rolled out and it arrives on every eligible Samsung Galaxy A5 smartphone. As always, the update is only out for unlocked versions of the A5 (2016).

The Galaxy J7 (2016) just started to receive the Android security patch for the month of April in India. The OTA package is quite slim at only 25.78MB and has the build number MMB29K.J710FXXU3AQD4. Along with the 49 CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) fixes included in all Android SMR releases for the month of April, Samsung also includes 16 of its own fixes that are unique to the manufacturer's smartphones only. If you own a J7 (2016) in India, you should be prompted for the update anytime now.

The S7 and the S7 Edge has also started to receive the same Android SMR update but this report is apparently coming in from Europe instead of Asia. The OTA update includes the same fixes from Google and Samsung as the ones mentioned above. It might be a while though before you get to see the update pop up on your phone. How much you will need to wait will depend largely on your location.

As had been predicted by a leaked piece of information known as the Samsung Nougat "roadmap" quite a while back, the Tab S2 has just started to receive Android Nougat 7.0 via OTA updates in the United States. Model number SM-T713 was released back in the November of 2015, so it's good to see that Samsung is still supporting the tablet with the latest Android OS update. It might not be the most timely update ever, but Samsung isn't known for that either!

Firmware version T713XXU2BQD3 will be making its way onto your Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 tablets in the US anytime now, if it hasn't already. Check from the Software Updates section, but it isn't really necessary though, given the fact that you will be prompted automatically to update your phone as soon as it arrives. The source of the news also reports that the update will not enable the Always On display functionality on the tablet, in spite of the device sporting a perfectly capable AMOLED panel. I guess they consider the feature to be a smartphone exclusive for now.

Samsung has recently shown a lot of responsibility and vigilance by updating even some of its three-year old handsets with the latest security patches and today we have similar news for a bunch of them.

• Galaxy S6 Edge Plus
• Galaxy Note Edge (China)
• Galaxy A5 2016
• Galaxy A5 2017

It is expected that along with Google's July security patch for the base Android OS, the OTA update will also bring some of Samsung's own little fixes for its smartphones' security loopholes. If you are wondering which firmware builds will be hitting the devices, check below for details.

Galaxy S6 Edge Plus - G928GUBS3CQG1

It was both surprising and disappointing to see the Galaxy A3 (2017) being released by Samsung without Android 7.0 Nougat onboard. However, it also meant that the phone would soon be receiving the update from Samsung. Although it can't exactly be called soon anymore, in case you bought the device, you should be glad to hear that Nougat is currently being rolled out to the A3 (2017) SM-A320F in Russia as you read this. Given that the update had started rounds back on the 26th of this month, you probably have already received a notification to update your device to the latest (released) Android OS, provide you are in Russia. If you haven't, don't worry, sometimes it takes a few days before all the batches are rolled out in an area. If you are in any other country however, the same update should be released in your region very soon as well.

It's a massive OTA package of 2.21GB by the way, so you better have a good Wi-Fi connection! It carries the firmware version A320FXXU2BQG5 and brings the July security update for the device from Google and Samsung. Take a look at the screenshot below for more details.

A lot of people expected the Galaxy A 2017 series to come with Android N preloaded but that didn't happen, as Samsung wasn't ready with the firmware in time. However, it did mean that Samsung would be updating the OS from Marshmallow 6.0.1 to Nougat 7.0 very soon. The good news is that it is finally happening as the OEM has just started to roll out the Android OS upgrade package to the Galaxy A7 (2017). Although it can hardly be called a "fast" update at this point, let's just be glad that it's finally here.

As of now, reports from Thailand indicate that Samsung has probably released the update first in that region. Nevertheless, other countries should also begin to see the OTA upgrade package arrive in the coming weeks. Firmware version of the package is A720FXXU2BQGB and it comes in quite a hefty size of 1394.40MB. If you see the update for your Galaxy A7 (2017) and you do not live in Thailand, do let us know in the comments. Thanks!

Although Google Nexus and Pixel devices have mostly been updated to the latest security patch for the month of August already, Samsung smartphones and tablets are not exactly known for getting fast updates from the OEM, especially when it comes to the company's low-mid range devices. However, that stereotypical thought process doesn't seem to apply anymore as Samsung has now released the August SMR for the mid-range Galaxy J7 Prime in a number of regions.

It is quite astonishing to see the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus still being stuck with the July security update, while the J7 Prime is being updated to the latest patch. Also to be noted is the fact that Samsung may have released the update even before Google this month as some users had received the August security patch as early as August 1. In addition to all the patches and fixes that Google has built into the update, Samsung has also added a dozen patches and fixes of its own.

Although the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus are usually the first ones to receive the latest security patches from Samsung, they were beaten to the August security patch by the Galaxy J7 Prime this month. Nevertheless, the two flagship handsets have now started to receive the August SMR from the OEM yesterday. As of now, SamMobile Reports that only UAE, Turkey and Germany are receiving the update, but it's only a matter of days before Samsung's respective departments in every other region also starts sending out the same update via OTA to the S8 and S8 Plus.

The August patch is a really heavy one at 600.35 MB, so you better fire up your Wi-Fi before downloading this one. You can check out the firmware version and other change details in the screenshot above if you want. Just like all other security patches from Samsung, this one also has 12 of Samsung's own fixes and patches for its own overlaying UI, in addition to the 28 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures present in the base Android OS.

At this point, the Android Nougat 7.0 OS is more than a year old, but thanks to the very botched up update system which most Android smartphone users must deal with, users are just glad to hear about the year-old update finally arriving on their smartphone model. While Samsung has most definitely stepped up their game recently by providing updates that are much more timely than they used to be a few years ago, they still take a long time to release major OS upgrades for all their models. Having said all that, we have good news for you if you live in India and you own a Galaxy A7 (2017); the much awaited Android Nougat 7.0 update is now live via OTA.

Firmware version A720FXXU2BQI2 is rolling out to model number SM-A720F throughout the entire Indian subcontinent. It's a huge update of 1376.35MB, so do not forget to plug in your Wi-Fi or it will drain your mobile data in a flash. Some of the other improvements that come with the firmware (aside from the default ones which will come with all Nougat updates) include the following.

·        improved notifications

·        improved Quick Settings features

·        Dual Messenger

·        Better multi-window

·        Samsung Pass

·        Improved Always-on Display

·        Faster app installation

Samsung has not exactly been very orderly with their updates recently and if their schedule for rolling out last month's security patch is any sign of things to come, then the company might be reverting back to their old infamous routine where they released security patches and Android updates later than a top tier manufacturer should. Nevertheless, you should check your Galaxy S8 and S8+ if you live in India for the October security patch because starting 13 November, it did start rolling out to the two models in the region. Firmware version for the update is G955FXXU1AQJ5 for the Galaxy S8+ and G950FXXU1AQJ5 for the Galaxy S8. Both are exactly 492.74MB in size so get ready to hook it up to your Wi-Fi!

This delay comes in right after Samsung decided to skip the September security patch altogether. Although it's worth remembering that they did patch the BlueBorne security threat in time, which was probably the reason why they could not release the September security patch. Nevertheless, that still doesn't explain why Samsung's flagship handsets are receiving the October patch in the middle of November!

The Galaxy Tab S2 is getting quite old now, but it still is receiving regular updates from Samsung and the respective carriers. Although it's quite doubtful whether or not the tablet will ever be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo, there is no doubt regarding the fact that the security updates will continue to be rolled out for the device for some time at least.

The details of the November security update as released by T-Mobile can be checked out from here, in case you are interested. The security patch carries the build number T818TUVU1BQJ3 and you should see it arrive on your tablet any time now, provided you are using the Tab S2 on a T-Mobile connection of course.

Samsung might have messed up their scheduled security updates quite a bit ever since the BlueBorne threat was detected, but they are getting back on track now. They have started releasing the November security patch for multiple devices in various regions. If you happen to own a Galaxy A7 (2017) in India, then you will likely be prompted to update your phone any time now, if you have not been prompted to do so already. Check out the software update section manually to know for sure. If the update is not there yet, don't worry about it because it's only a matter of time.

The update comes in at a decently heavy size of 330MB, via firmware version A720FXXU2BQK2. It includes fixes for 61 vulnerabilities in the base Android OS and 6 in Samsung's own overlying UI. There's also a patch for the KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability included, in case you are wondering. Although the exact details were not shared by SamMobile, we are guessing this update also patches the BlueBorne threat on the A7 (2017), given that this is the first firmware update that the smartphone is receiving in the region since it got updated to Android Nougat.

We have almost reached the end of the third week of January, so it's about time that Samsung's 2017 flagship handsets got updated with this month's patch and thankfully, those updates are finally here. Firmware version G9500ZCU2AQL2 and G9550ZCU2AQL2 are rolling out for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ as you read this, but unfortunately, that's happening only in China right now. Nevertheless, it's definitely a sign that the January security updates are heading for the two flagship handsets from 2017 in all other regions soon.

Another of Samsung's high-end handsets is getting the same update and it's good news for our Indian fans because that's where it is rolling out for the recently released Galaxy A8+. The update itself is moderately sized at 220MB and carries the firmware version A730FXXU1ARA6.

Both the patches will carry all the fixes that the January patch from Google is supposed to bring, in addition to fixing 13 bugs in Samsung's own UI. Hurry up and download it as soon as you are prompted to by your device.

It has been a few days now since Samsung first began updating the Galaxy S8 and S8+ with the final Android 8.0 Oreo version in India, Poland and France, but those updates were only reserved for the Galaxy Beta users. As expected though, the same update has now also started to roll out for the regular users who did not sign up for the Beta program.

This time the list is quite expansive as SamMobile earlier confirmed the fact that the update is seeing release in India, UAE, Turkey, Belgium Norway and Germany. This isn't necessarily a complete list though, because it is perfectly possible for you to receive Android 8.0 Oreo even if your region was not mentioned here. In fact, by the time you are reading this, we are pretty sure that a few other countries are also seeing the update rolled out to S8 and S8+ users. Just in case you are wondering, the firmware version remains G950FXXU1CRAP/G955FXXU1CRAP for the Galaxy S8/S8+, just as it was for the beta testers.

Just like the OEM has been doing for the last few months, March saw Samsung rolling out the security update of the month to certain low and mid-range handsets first, but now it's time for some of the higher end models to get the same treatment as well. As per reports by SamMobile, the Galaxy Note 8, the Galaxy A7 (2017) and the Galaxy S7 are the latest handsets in Samsung's arsenal to get the March security update via OTA.

If you own a Note 8, you should see your update arrive in the form of firmware version N950NKSU3CRC2. As for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy A7 (2017), firmware versions G930FXXS2DRC3 and A720FXXU3BRC2 should be making their way onto the two devices. While this means that all major regions should start receiving the same updates pretty soon, South Africa is so far the only place to get the same for the A7 (2017). Samsung had already started rolling out the March security update for the Note 8 in most regions and now South Korea has joined in. The S7 is receiving the patch in Europe at the moment.

UK was the first region to see Oreo ship out for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge back in May, but now other regions are also joining the list. India has just joined in as one of the regions that are getting the Android 8.0 update for the S7 and S7 Edge in June, alongside UAE. If you live in Europe or South Korea however, you probably already have the update installed, but that's to be expected.

The firmware version carrying the Android Oreo upgrade is G930FXXU2EREM for the Galaxy S7 and G935FXXU2EREM for the Galaxy S7 Edge. Both updates are around the 1.4 GB mark, with firmware version G935FXXU2EREM being slightly larger in size than G930FXXU2EREM. The update patch included with the package is from April though and that's a bit disappointing, given that we are already into the second week of June! Feel free to check for the update manually from the Settings menu, but it you will be prompted once it lands on your smartphone via OTA anyway.

Galaxy S9 and S9+ users on T-Mobile have not had a good experience this year as the carrier was not left with any other option but to stop rolling out the month's security update back in April. Unfortunately, it has now been two months or more ever since the rollout was stopped, yet they have not yet sent out any security updates from that day onwards, that is until now of course!

T-Mobile has just started pushing out a new update for their customers and we are happy to report that it is indeed the security update of the month, that is June 2018, as is evident from the screenshot. In case you own any of the two smartphones on AT&T or Sprint, some reports are suggesting that the two carriers are also pushing out the same update for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ on their networks.

It's late September and the latest flagship handset in Samsung's arsenal has just started to receive this month's security patch on two carriers in the US. Firmware version N60USQS1ARH6 is making its way onto the Galaxy Note 9 on AT&T and Sprint as you read this, so if you own the device on a contract from any of the two carriers, the update should arrive on your smartphone via OTA any minute now. This news comes in mere hours after users on Verizon started to receive the same update on their versions of the Galaxy Note 9.

In case you are wondering when the unlocked version and the other carrier models are going to get their September patch, we may not have an exact date for you. Nonetheless, expect T-Mobile to follow up soon enough. Unfortunately, if you own an unlocked version, no one can really make any estimates as in the US, unlocked variants get security updates pretty late for some reason!

Just a few days ago, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile started to upgrade the OS on their respective variants of the Galaxy Note 8 in US with Android 9 Pie, which also had the March security patch embedded in it as well.

Now Samsung has begun to send the April security update for the Note 8 (international variant) in Europe. Although a number of other countries could also be included on the list by the time you get around to reading this, the source names Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Russia to be among the first. Take a look at the firmware version and a few key elements to be expected from the update below.

·        Firmware Version: N950FXXS5DSC5

·        Fixes multiple High-Risk vulnerabilities in the base Android OS, as stated by Google

·        Fixes five Critical vulnerabilities in the base Android OS, as stated by Google

·        Patches fifteen vulnerabilities unique to the Samsung UI, as stated by Samsung
