So it’s 2021 now and OEM’s are still launching their devices with older version of android 10 build and expect to give OTA for android 11 later and diminish the update cycle with one more major update and telling the users that we have provided with 2 major software updates but technically they launched with old version of android.
Google has done alot and forced the manufacturers to rollout security updates etc. And show cased security updates will be given from Google directly on the play store long back but we haven’t seen any updates from that process and still stuck with OEM updates with lot of bugs.
