Google’s Pixel phones aren’t the only devices getting the new February 2020 security update today.
The Essential Phone is now getting an update to build QQ1A.200105.032, which includes the February 2020 security patches. The update is rolling out to the unlocked and Telus versions of the Essential Phone.
We’ve seen Essential push new Android updates the same day as Google for a long time now, so it’s not a huge surprise to see the Essential Phone get February 2020’s update the same day as the Pixels. It’s still pretty awesome to see, though, especially for a phone nearing its third birthday.
Our latest security update is now available for Telus customers and for all Open Market. Check your Essential Phone! pic.twitter.com/VZ8XoYdPFy
