Google just released the December 2018 Android security patch for Pixel and Nexus devices. It appears that we already have both factory image and OTA files ready to be downloaded for those willing to do some manual labor, or as always, you can sit back and wait for the update to arrive over-the-air (OTA) to your device.
So far, we are seeing new 9.0.0 files for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (PQ1A.181205.006) and Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL (PQ1A.181205.002). The regular Pixel and Pixel XL do not have December builds available just yet.
Other Google devices that still receiving security patches on Oreo are getting the following updates: Nexus 6P (OPM7.181205.001), Nexus 5X (OPM7.181205.001), and Pixel C (OPM8.181205.001).
Update: Pixel (PQ1A.181205.002.A1) and Pixel XL (PQ1A.181205.002.A1) files are now live.
