Hello, November and hello, Monday, it’s time for the regularly scheduled monthly Android security update. We’ve got a new Android 10 update for the Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a, and Pixel 4, where both factory image and over-the-air (OTA) files are available.

Currently, we are seeing new 10.0.0 files for Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL (QD1A.190821.007.A3, QD1A.190821.014, QD1A.190821.014.C2), Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL (QP1A.191105.003), Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL (QP1A.191105.003), and Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL (QP1A.191105.004).

Google didn’t specify the difference between Pixel 4 builds, but Verizon has posted that QD1A.190821.014.C2 is for its versions.

There are no images yet for the original Pixel and Pixel XL, which were supposed to be cut off last month.
