July 2022 Android Security Update Available for Google Pixel Phones

The holiday pushed us two days, but here we are accepting delivery of the July Pixel update and security patch. Google released the latest update for its Pixel phones, which should be minor after the big June Pixel Feature Drop we all got last month.


As of this moment, has posted July factory image and OTA 12.1 files for all of the active Pixel phones, including the Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, and Pixel 6 Pro. Everything here should be on-time, with no delays (again) for the Pixel 6 line. The Pixel 3a line also appears to be done-done.

The breakdown of July security update build numbers by Pixel device is as follows:

  • Pixel 6 (SQ3A.220705.001.B1, SQ3A.220705.003, SQ3A.220705.003.A1)
    • SQ3A.220705.001.B1 is for EMEA/APAC carriers
