It’s just been the start of July and we already saw some major OEMs like Samsung rolling out July security patch update to their smartphones like Galaxy A70. We were anticipating the forthcoming update for the Pixel devices which has finally arrived. The latest July 2020 security patch update has started rolling out to all Pixel devices except the original Google Pixel.
This is a minor update and only upgrades the security on your Google Pixel devices, therefore, you should not expect any new features or improvements to the smartphones. The update being a minor one does not mean that you should overlook downloading and installing it. We always emphasize the importance of security updates to bring fixes to threats and vulnerabilities on your Android smartphone.
You should install this update as soon as you receive a system notification or manually check for the update under Settings > System > Advanced > System Update. The OTA update is scheduled to be pushed in batches and may take some time to each all Pixel users globally based on your device and carrier. It is worth noting that all supported Pixel devices will be updated with global build number QQ3A.200705.002. If you don’t have the patience to wait for the update to hit your device via OTA, you have an option to manually download the factory image or OTA by clicking the applicable link based on the device you own.
