    PRD-63116-009
    -021
    -024
    -041
    -042
    -044
    -047

    Wouldn't it be easier for TCL/BB to just make one Firmware for all variants? Just now they have again: ABL183, ABL693 and ABM376 and that just for the Keyone.

    they need to comply with all those fake EU privacy laws paid for by taxes through the roof on everything, now gas tax, pension tax, VAT tax up as high as 21% on everything you buy... sheesh !!

    On the surface, I agree. But there are all sorts of considerations they have:
    - the regional regulations (JP devices always make loud camera sound)
    - the internals / radio bands may differ
    - specific idiosyncrasies to a regional network (GSM v CDMA), the protocol for VPN handshake for WiFi calling, etc.

    I'm very curious how brand A manages to simplify their OS distribution.

    In this case, ABL183 is for the branded AT&T device (they always require their own build), and it appears that ABL693 is for the Americas, and ABM376 is for APAC, Europe, and the Middle East (but not sure yet).

    ABL693 has just been certified on PTCRB for (non-AT&T) NA GSM carriers.

    Chronic dropping of connectivity to WiFi, with no warning to end user. Device shows connected to WiFi, but actually stops sending and receiving data, especially when connected over 5 GHz frequencies.

    Appears like a "timeout" of Web requests.

    Many, myself included, have a Malaysian variant (-042).

    Especially if we bought online before these devices showed up in our geographic region.
