The Verizon Pixel and Pixel XL devices are receiving an OTA update with September security limitation. The update comes with software version and build number OPR3.170623.007 and Android security patch amount 2017-09-01.
Apparently, Google isn’t first to release the September security limitation as Nokia had already released the update to Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 earlier this month. But we have to admit that Verizon is keeping up fairly good with timely updates to Google Pixel and Pixel XL. We would love it if the carrier revealed same love to additional Android devices also.
The September security update for Verizon Pixel and Pixel XL is rolling out over-the-air as we talk and you must receive an update notification quite soon. But if you are not the one to wait, go ahead and drive check for the update from the device’ Settings> “System” >System update >“Check for update”.
The OPR3.170623.007 update changelog mentioned an updated security patch also. We are aware that carriers and OEMs do not always mention everything that they change/update with a new software update, however this is the first update after Google released Android 8.0 Oreo to Pixel devices, also if it only comes with a security patch update, then that probably leaves us with unfixed Oreo Bluetooth issues and battery drain issue.
