Google Ends Security Updates on Older Pixel Phones

A November security patch is released by Google, but the original Pixel phones i.e Google Pixel and Google Pixel XL have not received the update.

Initially, Google said that the phones will only receive two years of Android version updates as well as major software updates and three years of security patches. However, the Original Pixel phone got the Android 10 Operating system update which was not supposed to happen.

Pixel/Pixel XL features a design language which was continued till pixel 3a. Both the phones had a primary camera of 12.3 MP and 8 MP front selfie camera. This quality of the camera worked well just like Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. They started the first Made by Google hardware. Also, Google started the unique name for its color option i.e. Really Blue, Very Silver, and Quite Black.

Google might be late in giving the security updates to first-generation Pixel phones because this happens with old models or it might be a chance that Google is releasing the update in batches. But according to 9 to 5 Google, the new security update is not yet given to Pixel old phones.

It would be great if the November security patch is introduced to old models also. As it fixes the high number of critical severity exploits in the system.
