[Trust no one] Samsung's Twitter support reps are telling people the unlocked US Galaxy S7 won't get updates, but that's completely wrong

We hear regularly from readers who were given confusing (and sometimes alarming) information by the support reps for one company or another. This is almost always a result of the front-line customer service people being misinformed or confused, but the latest Samsung support blunder is a particularly annoying example of this phenomenon. The official Samsung support Twitter account is adamant that the new US unlocked Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge won't get updates, but that's just nonsense.

How wrong we were. The unlocked Priv update started rolling out in late April, and the AT&T variant has been stagnating since then. Today is the big day, though. Android 6.0 is hitting the Priv on AT&T.

[Update: Pixel C] Nexus factory images and OTA ZIPs with July's security updates are now available

The Factory images and OTA ZIPs for July 2016 are now available for the full line of supported Nexus hardware (still waiting for the Pixel C). They're a little behind schedule this month, possibly because it was Independence Day in the United States on Monday, or possibly to leave time for some late-breaking security patches that may have been added in the eleventh hour. The Android Security Bulletin covers the list of vulnerabilities addressed with this set of updates, and for the first time it includes two separate lists: one dated July 1st and the other dated July 5th.

AT&T finally updates the Galaxy S6 Active with Marshmallow and WiFi calling

There are certain things you have to expect when buying a phone on AT&T. For example, updates are going to take longer than other carriers (even Verizon as of late), and that's even more true when the device is a bespoke piece of hardware for the carrier.
