July 2020 Android security patch rolling out now to Google Pixel phones

Don't expect too many feature updates, though, as this isn't a feature drop.

It’s time for the July 2020 Android security patch! If you own a Google Pixel smartphone (any except for the original Pixel), you can perform a software update check now in System Settings to grab the new patch. Conversely, you can update manually or simply wait for the OTA notification.

According to the bulletin associated with the July 2020 Android security patch, there aren’t too many updates here aside from the boost in security. That makes sense since last month we saw the quarterly feature drop for Pixel phones, so this month’s update is going to be pretty bare-bones in comparison.

It should be mentioned that the July 2020 Android security patch, once again, has already rolled out to some Samsung phones. That’s another month down where Samsung flagships have seen the latest patch before Pixel devices.

If you don’t want to wait for the OTA alert on your Pixel phone, you can always manually update. To download the factory image or OTA, click the appropriate link below. Don’t have a Pixel phone? We expect the Google Pixel 4a to launch sometime soon, so stay tuned for that.
