Google's Latest Android Update Fixes Pixel Phone Freezing

In addition to bolstering the security of its devices, Android Police points out that Google included a pretty important Pixel software fix in this update: a nasty bug that has resulted in some Pixel smartphones randomly freezing has supposedly been fixed.

Right on schedule, Google has released Android monthly security bulletin for the month of June along with updated security patches for recently discovered vulnerabilities. If you want, the system images and OTA files are already available for sideloading. The previous security update, NHG47L, was pushed out in May, suggesting that Verizon is doing a decent job of keeping Google phones up to date. The Google representative just said that it can be caused by "many different things", and advised everyone to keep updating their phone's software.

While Google is looking to fix errors in its existing products, rumors are abuzz that the company is working on the Pixel 3. It's very likely that this issue will no longer plague Google's upcoming successors to the Pixel and Pixel XL.

As usual, security updates will be rolled out to the Pixel devices and supported Nexus devices in the coming weeks via an OTA update.

According to the same post from Google's official page, the files are for personal use only for your Nexus and Pixel devices and they "may not be disassembled, decompiled, reverse engineered, modified or redistributed by you or used in any way except as specifically set forth in the license terms that came with your device". In case you don't want to wait for automatic roll-out, Google has also provided the factory images and full OTAs for manually flashing.

Since Google launched its Pixel and Pixel XL Android smartphones in October, some users have reported via the online Pixel User Community that their devices repeatedly froze at random times.
