Nexus 5X, 6P and the Google Pixel Available with June Security Patch

Users who are not included in the Beta Program running the latest Android O developer preview are set to receive the June security patch these days.

The update is still on 7.1.2, and it features some bug fixes and various security patches targeted at Google Pixel and Nexus devices.

The June security patch will deal with the various freezing issues

A member of the Pixel User Community who own a Google Pixel device said that the June security patch should be addressing the freezing problems that have been reported so far.

Rogers Darrel, the community specialist, also notes that a VoLTE fix for the Pixel and the Pixel XL should arrive with the latest patch. Just the same as it happened last month, this month there will also be separate builds for Deutsche Telekom and Verizon, but also for Fi carriers, T-Mobile and Rogers Pixel devices.

The security patch dated 2017-06-01 resolves 21 issues and the one dated 2017-06-05 deals with 80 more issues. According to Google, these two security patch level strings will offer Android partners enhanced flexibility for fixing a set of vulnerabilities that are similar for most Android devices faster.

Google devices are scheduled to receive the last patch, and the devices that are created by other manufacturers will feature OEM-specific fixes.

You can get the full OTA images for Nexus and Pixel devices here on this page. You’ll see that it contains OTA binary files that will offer you the possibility to update your Pixel and Nexus devices. This will have the same effect of flashing the corresponding factory images, but you will not need to wipe your device.

According to the same post from Google’s official page, the files are for personal use only for your Nexus and Pixel devices and they “may not be disassembled, decompiled, reverse engineered, modified or redistributed by you or used in any way except as specifically set forth in the license terms that came with your device.”
