BlackBerry delivered in August

by Volker Weber

I am still watching BlackBerry and their Android security updates. In the month of August all BlackBerry Android devices received their updates, that means they are all on the August 05 patch level. DTEK60 had skipped the July update but it has now caught up to the DTEK50, PRIV and KEYone. PRIV is the oldest of them and launched 22 months ago. It received one software upgrade to Marshmallow. Both DTEKS shipped with Marshmallow. Now that BlackBerry has moved on, I don't expect software upgrades to Nougat or Oreo, but security updates should be continuing.

BlackBerry Mobile (TCL) is bullish about the KEYone and wants to upgrade it from Nougat to Oreo. They are also preparing the launch of an all touch BlackBerry device with dust and moisture protection. I expected this to happen at IFA, but it hasn't.

Just for comparison, the Moto Z2 Play has received a single update and is now on a July patch level, up from April, the Huawei P10 has received multiple and is still on May with a July update being rolled out.

"Pünktlich" zum 1. September hat mein Galaxy S7 den Security Patch vom 1. August erhalten.
Es wird langsam :-)
