Android Q Update Tracker: When is Android 10 Q coming to your phone

Almost every smartphones manufacturer has rolled out the current Android 9 Pie to some of their best and most deserving devices. The Pie rollout started long back with all the android one devices which came with Oreo out of the box. Nokia started receiving the update. Later we saw Motorola rolling out the update and soon enough OnePlus to its previous year devices. Companies who use their skin like Huawei, Honor, Realme, Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo, etc. also started the rollout to some of their compatible devices. Many manufacturers delayed the update for various reasons for some of their devices like Realme for Realme U1, and Oppo is still working on some of their devices like F9, Moto G6 Play Sprint users are now receiving the update and HTC recently started their Android 9 Pie rollout for their U11+.

While the majority of the expected devices have received or receiving the Android 9 Pie update, Google’s Android 10 Q, which is currently in Beta, may fall soon for the Pixel devices. We got a lot of information about Android Q at Google IO 2019, including the one thing which I feel like is a bit of a downfall for me at least. The Android Q will not do not have the Android Beam feature. Android Beam uses NFC to transfer data between two phones when placed close to each other. As we are getting more and more information about the upcoming Android Q, people are getting more and more curious to know if their device will receive the update or not. Well, we can’t tell you when, but we can surely tell you if your device will get it or not.

For a better reference, The list will be divided into three sections. First one will be a list of devices which will eventually grab the Android Q 10 update, the second list will house the devices which may or may not get the update. The third list will contain all the devices that will not get the Android Q update. So let’s dive straight and begin the most anticipated list for Android users starting with the latest upcoming features of Android Q.

The past record of Asus with updates wasn’t so impressive, but the company is emerging to be a great competitor in the smartphone market. The latest Asus 6Z is a superb value for money phone, and new close to stock refreshed UI of Asus in most of their phones tells a different story about their update policy. We also saw their latest 6Z in the beta program of Android Q, so we have hopes for these smartphones.

BLACKBERRY

  • BlackBerry Evolve X

List of BlackBerry devices which will not get Android Q Update

  • BlackBerry Leap
  • BlackBerry Motion
  • BlackBerry Aurora
  • BlackBerry Keyone
  • BlackBerry Priv

BlackBerry devices get security updates but are probably the slowest to receive the feature updates. Key two users might be waiting for Android 9.0 Pie update, but the device was confirmed earlier to receive the Android Q update. BlackBerry Key 2 is the company’s only device which is confirmed to get the latest upcoming Android update.

GOOGLE PIXEL

  • Google Pixel XL
  • Google Pixel 2

Google’s Pixel phones are always the fastest to receive Android updates. You can already install Android Q beta on all the Pixel devices, and all of them are going to receive the upcoming Android Q update.

HTC

HTC Android Q update

List of HTC devices to get Android Q Update

HTC has recently started rolling out Android 9 Pie update to some their top tier devices hence we can’t confirm any of their smartphones yet to receive the Android Q update.

List of HTC devices which may get Android Q Update

  • HTC U19e

  • HTC U11+
  • HTC U11 Life
  • HTC U11 Eyes

  • HTC Desire 12
  • HTC U Ultra

HTC has quite a great roadmap. The company has a severe downfall in the past couple of years and is now doing hard for their survival in business. The company is not releasing many phones, but the individually available phones are also taking quite a while to receive updates. We can’t assure anything, but we hope them to announce the same very soon.

LG

LG isn’t so great in pushing the updates, but their flagship G8 is in Android Q beta. V50 ThinQ shares the same software footprints, and also we believe that their new LG W30 phones featuring Android 9 Pie and stock Android experience can get the chance to taste Android Q next.

Motorola has a seriously good record of pushing updates to their devices. Their phones run on stock android, so they have a lot of fewer things to do as compared to other brands. Motorola is popular to push their devices to its limits for having the support of latest software, and since some of their devices are android one devices, hence they’re confirmed to receive the future Android Q update.

NOKIA

Nokia has a superb potential to push software updates to their products. The company has a lot of android one devices, and their phones run completely on stock android. Nokia also has some Android Go edition devices which can receive Android Q go edition updates, but we have to wait for its confirmation. Though Nokia 8.1 is already in the beta testing list of Android Q and few devices were promised by the brand to get the Android Q update, so they’re all here.

ONEPLUS

OnePlus Android 10 Q Update

List of OnePlus devices to get Android Q Update

1 Aug: OnePlus has released DP4 update for some of their devices. You can read the complete information about the DP4 Android Q update here.

OnePlus is good with updates. The company pushes out updates to older devices too. OnePlus has a lot of devices in the android Q beta program, and we have a complete, confirmed list of OnePlus devices which will receive the Android Q update in future. Also, keep a note that Oxygen OS gives a very close to stock Android experience so OnePlus won’t take much longer to push the updates to their latest and greatest 7 series.

REALME

Realme is a new subsidiary of Oppo. The company has recently completed its one year in the business, and so far it is neither bad nor good with the updates. The company takes time to push updates to older devices but with newer ones is quite a vigilante. The Realme 3 Pro is in Android Q beta too, so we got hopes from Realme.

OPPO

  • Oppo A37
  • Oppo A59

Oppo is still pushing ColorOS based Android 9 Pie update to some of their deserving devices, so we can’t say when but we can surely say that the Reno will definitely receive the Android Q update as it is in the beta testing list. Also, the F11 Pro can get Android Q update later. We hope that Oppo users, especially the F9 and F7 users, receive the Android 9 Pie update soon and the company starts pushing the upcoming Android Q update to their confirmed devices as quickly as possible.

Sony has its Xperia XZ3 in the list of Android Q beta program, so we know it’s going to get it! But Sony has always been the non-winning turtle of the race of updates. We can’t confirm about the rest of the devices, but apart from Xperia XZ3, I personally believe that the Xperia 1 should get the upcoming Android Q update.

Vivo has a couple of phones on the Android Q beta list, so they’re confirmed to receive the update, whereas the Vivo Z2 Pro is the company’s latest device with Snapdragon 712 chip, this will also receive the upcoming major update. We would like to see what will be the changes in these new updates in Vivo phones, also how Vivo implement their innovation with this new software.

Huawei has a different story, and the company had a tough time with all the issues of the trade war between the United States and China. Huawei recently became a part of the US entity list, which means Huawei can’t do business with any US-based company. Which indicates that the company can’t use Google’s Android in their devices anymore. Hence Huawei vigorously pushed its pace towards its own operating system. Huawei is reportedly testing Hongmeng OS or ARK OS in their devices. But recently, the company claimed that all these devices would get the latest Android Q update. And since the US Ban has now lifted up, we don’t doubt any statement or commitment of the company as their past records are quite impressive regarding updates despite having their own EMUI skin on top of the Android operating system. You can read the complete information about the Huawei Android Q update here.

Honor, the subbrand of Huawei is stuck in the same situation as its parent company Huawei. The company was previously in trouble with all the conflicts between Chinese tech giant Huawei and the United States President. But now things are in control, and we are hoping to see the updates soon in all of these devices. We still doubt if the Honor 8C will receive the update or not as the company as of now has only confirmed the recently launched Honor 20 lineup. You can read the complete information about the Honor Android Q update here.

Although Samsung fans would be much excited about the upcoming Note 10 instead of Android Q, so let’s see what announcements we hear from Samsung regarding the update, its timeline, and lucky devices.

LENOVO

While we don’t have anything from Lenovo, We are assuming that these devices can get Android Q update. Lenovo last year threw android Pie update only on a handful of devices, so we don’t have any hopes from them, but we believe these devices from the OEM are worth an update.

So here is the list of all the Smartphones which will receive the upcoming Android Q update. The other lists also carry the devices which may or may not receive the update so be sure to check all the lists before instead just one. Can you find your phone? Which list does it belong to? Let us know in the comments.
