If you only have to wait a week, then consider yourself lucky. Carriers normally bundle the security updates with the regular updates. Meaning, you are waiting ~6 months for security updates on Android. That is, unless you own a Pixel or Nexus device, then they are monthly.
When will TELUS release the Android OS update to Nougat for the Samsung Galaxy S7? Samsung released Android 7.1.1 January 12th after a beta program so when will TELUS offer this highly anticipated update?
Samsung hasn't officially announced Nougat yet. Telus will be waiting for them to do that. Unless Samsung radically changed their process, they're ususally 6-9 months delayed in releasing updated from when Google does.
There may be a delay as well > http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_halts_galaxy_s7_nougat_update_rollout-news-22777.php
Samsung announced it yesterday officially, so it looks like the delay is over.
It'll be interesting to see how quickly Telus can deliver it to us now seeing there's been an extensive beta period ahead of the general release.
if it's sometime in march then i will probably be using a different phone if i even renew my contract... the samsung s7 edge has been a total nightmare and i was hoping that a firmware update might fix the issue....the amount i use my phone it would better suit my getting a pay as you go phone rather than dumping $90+taxes every month i could easily get away with a pay as you go and put 25 dollars on it every month.. the only reason i kept up with my plan was my mother's health issues which i can say she is no longer having as she passed last sunday so i don't really need my phone anymore
Dear TELUS, I understand the desire to not set false expectations, but having a supposedly forward-looking schedule only looking backwards is not the best idea from a customer service standpoint.
I noticed that the updates page (https://forum.telus.com/t5/Mobility/Software-Update-Schedule/ta-p/53566) now has an extra column: "Target Launch". Of course, it's empty.
Over the past few months, things only get posted AFTER they have been released.
I think if 2 things were improved, it would keep customers happy while minimizing churn for the support folks:
Either that or change the title of the topic the "Software Update History" to be clear you're not going to forecast anymore.
My 2 cents...
The updates are usually released in batches so the servers aren't overwhelmed. You may want to hold off a little on updating the G4 Plus as Lenovo's forums have a number of users indicating there have been problems since updating.
If your phone is from India, any updates for it will not come from Telus. The update for the G4 Play has not been released yet. Only the Z Play. Once it's out you should be able to get it as a normal update OTA from Lenovo if they release the update. Your phone should regularly check for updates on its own and should pop up a notification when one is available.
I still haven't got my android 7 Nougat update yet for my Telus Moto G4 Plus, does it have anything to do with the fact that it's unlocked and a SIM from another carrier being installed?
