July 2019 Android Security Update Now Available for Pixel Devices (Updated: OTA Live!)

July Android Security Update Pixel

A new month has arrived, bringing with it a new Android security patch for Google Pixel phones. The July 2019 Android security update is now available for all of Google’s currently supported Pixel devices (Pixel 3a, Pixel 3, Pixel 2, and Pixel). Both factory images and OTA files can be grabbed if you don’t feel like waiting for Google to push the update to your device.

Currently, we are seeing new 9.0.0 files for Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL (PQ3B.190705.003), Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (PQ3A.190705.003), Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL (PQ3A.190705.001), and Pixel and Pixel XL (PQ3A.190705.001).

The Pixel C has either been cut off after all these years or Google just hasn’t posted a new 8.1.0 image. If they do, we’ll let you know.

  • UPDATE: The over-the-air update is live. To check for it, head into Settings>System>Advanced>System update.
  • UPDATE 2: Yep, the Pixel C is done as of June 2019.
