February security patch could be rolled out to Pixel and Nexus devices on February 6


For the first time this year, Google is not the first to release the Android monthly security updates for its smartphones. Earlier this week Sony began rolling our the February security patch to a couple of its Xperia handsets.

The good news is Google will follow in Sony's footsteps next week when we expect both the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones, as well as the Nexus 6P, to get a similar update.

Canadian carrier Telus confirmed the information when it refreshed its devices update roadmap, but we believe the availability of the update will expand to other carriers worldwide. We're also expecting the rest of supported Nexus devices will receive the update around the same time, even if Telus doesn't list them.

On a side note, Pixel, Pixel XL, and Nexus 6P will not be the only smartphones that Telus plans to update on February 6. The list contains a few BlackBerry handsets as well, such as the BlackBerry Z10, BlackBerry Z30, and BlackBerry Leap.

It could be the 5th or the 7th as well. I like this guessing game.
