[Update: Release hits Korea] LG to start bringing Android 9 Pie to G7 ThinQ with South Korea in Q1 2019

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

LG's history when it comes to updating phones is not great — so much so, in fact, that the company went out of its way to announce a whole new Software Upgrade Center earlier this year to combat the problem.

Samsung Android 9 Pie beta with One UI now available for Galaxy Note8

Wednesday, January 16th, 2019

Samsung's long-awaited Android 9 Pie update finally started coming to phones late last year, complete with a rather sweeping interface overhaul in One UI (maybe we'll have to stop calling it TouchWiz now). The roadmap for bringing Pie to other phones tells us that the Galaxy Note8 will be getting it in February, and sure enough, the beta is now available to try.

It's unusual for so many Samsung phones to get in on the beta program for a new Android release, but the Note8 is now the 4th phone to get the Pie beta after the Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note9.

‘Swipe down to close’ gesture for Play Store images is now live for some

Monday, January 14th, 2019

Until now, pressing the back navigation button has been the only way to get out of an image in the Google Play Store on Android, but it seems a new method is rolling out. A gesture to swipe down on an image to exit has been implemented, which certainly seems a little more intuitive.

The Play Store app seems to be in a continual state of flux, with various UI changes rolling out to different users at different times, before potentially disappearing again.

Google appears to have fixed the ‘check for update’ button on Pixels again

Monday, January 7th, 2019

In what is likely to be the biggest low-key Android news today, Google seems to have silently flipped the switch (again) when it comes to the "check for update" button on Pixels. On every Pixel device we've tested here at Android Police, tapping the button in the Settings app is successfully pulling down the recent January update.

For a bit of perspective, OTA rollouts are usually pushed out to a smaller group before everyone else, to better ensure that a serious, undetected problem with a given update only affects a few people before it's caught.

Essential Phone isn’t dead yet, picks up January update mere hour after Pixels

Monday, January 7th, 2019

Essential's January update to the PH-1 was a bit delayed compared to the company's usual standards. Instead of the typical near-simultaneous release, we had to wait just over an hour for the Essential Phone to get this months' patches. For fans of the house of Rubin, that's nearly an eternity.

Essential's monthly patches, as always, have the same non-Pixel-specific security fixes that Google's phones get. This month includes 27 of them, though only some will apply to the Essential Phone, and none stood out as particularly interesting this month — though obviously, they're still important.

AT&T starts rolling out updates with fake ‘5G Evolution’ icon, just as promised

Saturday, January 5th, 2019

Most of you are probably familiar with AT&T's very misleading initiative to dub an enhanced version of 4G LTE "5G Evolution." As the top comment on that post predicted, the "5G E" icon has begun to roll out very quickly, already hitting both the LG V30 and Samsung Galaxy S8 active less than two weeks after the announcement.

The Galaxy S8 active's "5G E" icon is bundled with a December 2018 security patch.

Galaxy Note9 Android 9 Pie update starts rolling out in Germany

Friday, January 4th, 2019

Samsung, I must tip my hat to you. The company is doing a better job this year with the Pie update than it has in any year prior. After beta testing Android 9 with One UI on its Galaxy S9/S9+ and Note9 for a bit, it rolled out the stable version to the former on Christmas and updated its forecast for the latter to say it would land in January instead of February.

Asus rolls out Android 9 Pie to the Zenfone 5 (ZE620KL)

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

It's been a few months since Google rolled out Android 9 Pie, which means that many OEMs with skinned UIs are gearing up to start updating their devices too. Samsung began its process with the S9 and S9+ on Christmas, and now Asus is following its footsteps with its Zenfone 5.

If you have a Zenfone 5 (ZE620KL), you should keep an eye out for an update notification. The OTA is being sent out now, though the rollout will happen in batches, so you'll have to be patient — or jam the check for updates button regularly and hope for the best.
