Why my phone still has the older Android version...?
Please note that most of the time the new Android versions get rolled out relatively slowly: manufacturers don't deliver over-the-air (OTA) Android updates to all users at the same time, but instead, roll out the update in cycles.
Additionally, if your phone has been bought from an operator, this complicates things. While the unlocked phones might get the updates, the operator-specific, so-called "locked phones" might be out of luck. Typically, the large operators have their own customizations in place for the phones sold through them and due those customizations, the update schedule for operator locked phones can be totally different than those that are unlocked.
You can try to manually check if there's an update available for your phone by visiting your phone's Settings. There, you can find a place for System updates. Visit that section: it will check whether there's updates available for your phone right now.
