First-generation Pixels will get final update in December

The first-generation of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL did not receive the November update patch, which prompted many to realize that the OG Pixel has fulfilled Google’s promised run of OTA updates for its lifetime.

Are you an OG Pixel owner? Which device are you considering updating to?
