Android 10 will be coming out later this year, but not every phone will get it. The ones that will may not even get it in 2019. While Project Treble has helped to reduce some OEM struggles with software updates, it’ll be some time before non-Pixel phones receive Android Q. With this guide, you’ll at least know when.
Despite all of the improvements to Android’s updating process, only 10.4% of all Android devices managed to update to Android Pie (9.0) over the last nine months. It appears that Android Q will be another software update which will be enjoyed by a minority of users this year. The rest will have to wait until next year, if lucky.
With Android Oreo (8.0), Google introduced Project Treble to let OEMs push out Android updates without waiting for new compatible skins. Now, Google is working to speed up security updates with its new Project Mainline, which pushes out updates from the Play Store.
The thing is, Android users will want Android Q. With a real system-wide dark mode coming to the platform, along with support for foldable phones, revised gestures controls, and collections of security and backend features, this isn’t something to miss out on. And those are just some of the new features.
If you think your Android phone might get Android 10, check the list below to find out when. Not sure? Check the list, but as time goes on we’ll know better timelines and more devices that will support Android Q, so keep coming back to check.
About This List
For each phone on this list, we’ll label it as either “Confirmed” (with an official date or the time it took for the update to be released), “Beta” (with latest version number it supports), “Rumored,” or “No Information.” When a US variant of the phone officially receives Android Q after the update is released, its name will be bold.
As with our previous list, we’ll focus solely on smartphones officially released in the US. This means we will exclude Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, and other Chinese brands. Even if the phone’s international version is available through official retailers (e.g., Huawei P30 via B&H), it won’t be on our list as it’s still not technically an official release. Typically, these versions don’t include US warranty.
