04 June 2019 0

Google June 2019 Android security update has now started rolling out for Pixel phones, including the newly-launched Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL devices. The new update also brings bug fixes and performance improvements for the said devices. Apart from the Pixel phones, the Essential Phone also receives the latest security update. The June security patch comes to the carrier-locked (Sprint) as well as open market versions of the Essential Phone.

Aside from the OTA update, Google has also made available the factory images and OTA files so that you can update your devices manually. According to the Pixel Update Bulletin for June 2019, the new update fixes the boot freeze issue on Pixel 2. Similarly, it fixes a camera app crashing problem while video recording on the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL. Also, a bug that caused the Netflix app to freeze on the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 3 pair has also been improved.

Apart from these individual fixes, the June security patch also removes three high-level Elimination of Privilege (EoP) vulnerabilities in the framework, and three critical-level Remote Code Execution (RCE) vulnerabilities in the media framework.

This is the first ever update for the Pixel 3a series; they came running the outdated version of security patch but were promised to receive the upcoming update soon.
