The Sony XZ Premium has been approved for the last three updates, anything holding back its release?

Christmas is approaching at a more rapid rate than a software update from Huawei.

 

The constant delays and lack of clear information of when an update is coming has become a joke.

 

The P9 handset was heavily promoted by Vodafone last year and those who took up the offer (like me for P9 and watch)and signed a new contract have been left high and dry with no software and security updates. There needs to be a greater level of accountability for both handset manufacturers and carriers to provide software and security updates in a timely manner.  

 

I will be exercising the option to get rid of my Huawei P9 in a couple of months at the 12 month mark of my contract, it will be the first and last Huawei handset I have.

I noticed a few Huawei phones are getting the Nougat update, when can I expect the 2017 GR5 to receive the update? Seems the device has had Nougat for some time globally, but Australia is lagging behind
