2017 June security Patch is now rolling out and the good news is Nexus as well as Pixel devices are still being supported if you are not using beta Android O. This clearly indicates that in next few days users can start seeing OTA landing on their phones. Also it is possible to flash entire factory image and sideload OTA. However users are not recommended to go with flashing option as it is a lengthy and complex procedure. It can also make your device run out of every installed app and stored data. On the other side sideload or waiting for the pop up message would be a good option.
