Google just released the November 2018 Android security patch for Pixel and Nexus devices, and that means the first update for the new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL has arrived. It looks like we already have both factory image and OTA files ready to be downloaded for those willing to do some manual labor, or you can sit back and wait for the update to arrive over-the-air to your device.
So far, we are seeing new 9.0.0 files for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (PQ1A.181105.017.A1) and Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL (PQ1A.181105.017.A1). The regular Pixel and Pixel XL do not have November builds available just yet.
- UPDATE 11/19: Google finally posted the Pixel and Pixel XL November updates with builds PPR1.181005.003.A1 (Telus only) and PPR2.181005.003.A1 (all others).
