Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P and Nexus 9 Receive Oreo September Security Factory Images
Android 8.0 Oreo was recently unveiled during the lunar eclipse. The software has now officially started rolling out to different devices. Even though Google just released the biggest update of this year, it seems like the Android parent is not taking any breaks. The reason we are saying this is because Google has already released all the factory images for Android 8.0 Oreo’s security patches.
Android 8.0 Oreo Factory Images
Google likes to release factory images of its software updates before release so that eager Android fans can get their hands on them before everyone else. The devices which are eligible to flash Google’s latest security patch are Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Nexus 9, Pixel, Pixel XL and Pixel C.
September Security Patch
The Android parent puts a high price on user security and that’s why it launches a new security patch every month. Even though Google has one of the biggest teams of developers in the world, some bugs and minor flaws still manage to pass by unnoticed.
In addition, hackers and malicious software developers are always looking for different ways of breaking into Google’s operating system and these monthly patches are designed to make it harder for them. Nonetheless, this month’s security patch will fix some important Qualcomm, kernel components and Broadcom issues which are considered as being critical security vulnerabilities.
Flashing Factory Images
Not everyone is versed in the art of flashing factory images and that’s completely understandable. This is why we advise Android fans who don’t really understand the risks of flashing factory images to just sit back, relax and wait for Google to officially start rolling out the update itself. Once Google starts rolling out September’s update, the only thing that Android fans need to do is to check for the update in their notification.
