Pixels Get A New Update, Ahead Of Android 13’s Arrival

A new update is now rolling out to Google’s Pixels, and this will be the last update before Android 13 lands. We’re talking about the stable build, of course. In any case, the July 2022 security update is now rolling out to Google Pixel phones.

Pixels are now getting a new update, right before Android 13’s arrival

This seems to be a rather modest update, as it doesn’t really deliver anything spectacular, well, other than security updates. That is to be expected, as this is not a Pixel Feature Drop update, or anything of the sort. This is just your regular security update.

The most notable change comes in form of additional VoLTE features for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, in certain regions. Other than that, we’re looking at security updates.

This update is rolling out to quite a few devices as we speak. Do note this is a staged rollout. It may take a bit of time for the update to arrive to your device, that’s for sure.

Quite a few Pixels are getting updated

As already mentioned, quite a few devices are getting this update. The following Pixel phones with Android 12 installed will receive this update: Pixel 4, 4a, 4a 5G, 5, 5a, 6, and 6 Pro. That goes for global models.

In addition to that, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro on Verizon are getting it as we speak, as are the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro in the EMEA/APAC regions.

Do note that a total of 33 vulnerabilities are listed as patched up. Various different changes are listed, ranging from Mediatek, Unisoc, and Qualcomm components, to device framework changes.

Having said that, Android 13 is right around the corner. Google is expected to start rolling out a stable version of Android 13 to its smartphone in just a couple of weeks. So, this is the last update Google’s Pixel phones will see before Android 13 lands.
