    Is it only my phone, or would it be fair to assume that the Pixel 2XL will be skipping the October Security patch and going straight to November's in a week or so?

    Is this also the case for the Pixel 2?

    Until last week, I had the Nexus 6P and the Pixel XL, and both had received the October Security patch. My Pixel C also received the patch.

    I was wondering that too. My 2XL is still on September. My Essential phone was updated yesterday to Oct.

    All the Pixels are on September. Google is probably waiting for the November patch

    Correct -- Google is waiting for the November patch. It will have all the updates + the KRACK WiFi fix.

    Hopefully we'll see that in the next few days?

    Usually within the first few days of the month.

    Are the screen "fixes" for the XL going to be included in it?

    That's 8.1 IIRC.

    This is correct. If you install the 8.1 beta you will have the Oct. patch.

    If you don't want the 8.1 beta just wait a few days and you will get an update.

    So the people on the beta don't have the "display fix" for the XL. Does that mean it won't be in next week's update?

    On beta the display fix is there. The update people will get next week will be the security patch update. I don't know if 8.1 is ready for release yet.

    I think 8.1 is supposed to come out in December. I saw that somewhere, I think Android Police.

    So there's a update for the XL for the screen, retention / burn in, both the 2 and XL are the same hardware, so one update that'll affect both phones?
    Or XL will receive its own update, hope that made sense.

    My 2 XL is on the September security patch. I imagine it'll skip Oct and go straight to November.

    Wonder if it'll be bundled with the screen calibration changes.

    Doubtful. The changes are for 8.1 -- This is just a security patch.

    Right. Most big software companies don't bundle features in a security patch. The exception is when you get a new version of the OS and they add the security patch along with it.
