Google accidentally released an update that is not supposed to arrive on consumers smartphone. According to numerous reports that we have come across, Google Pixel phones and Essential PH-1 are receiving internal November 2018 security update.

“First Post here. Today I woke up to what looks like an internal dogfood build for the November 2018 security patch, came up as a normal OTA and installed as normal, anyone else got this,” a Reddit user writes.

A little bit digging by us revealed that this security update is nothing more than simple patch and are there no new features, notification changes or improvements.
