According to Google, several mobile phone manufacturers have committed to update some of their phones in 2019: the list includes Asus, LG, Motorola, Oppo, Realme, Samsung, Sony and Vivo. The update has already been released for the Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro and for smartphones from OnePlus and Nokia.
“Many manufacturers like Asus, LG, Motorola, Oppo, Realme, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Transsion and Vivo have committed to update some of their devices to Android 10 by the end of the year,” says Google on your official blog.
Asus has released a public beta of Android 10 for the Zenfone 5Z; LG did the same for the G8 ThinQ. Motorola promises to update its devices that are in the Android One program, such as Motorola One and One Vision, in addition to Motorola One Zoom and One Macro (which do not have updates guaranteed by Google despite the name).
Samsung has been testing the One UI 2 within a beta program for the Galaxy S10, S10 + and S10e in some countries. This started on October 12, “compared to November 15 last year” for the beta of Android 9 Pie, Google notes. Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ will also be covered soon.
Android 10 arrives faster with Project Treble
The Essential Phone (PH-1) and Xiaomi Redmi K20 Pro sold in China and India received the final version of Android 10 on the same day as the Google Pixel line.
Also in September, OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro were able to install the stable OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10; while the OnePlus 7T was released with this version. The manufacturer is conducting the beta test on the OnePlus 6 and 6T; and promises to update the OnePlus 5 and 5T by the second quarter of 2020.
Nokia 8.1 started receiving Android 10 earlier this month. HMD Global has published a schedule for 17 phones that are guaranteed to be updated.
Google’s optimism about Android 10 is related to Project Treble, which divides parts of the system into modules to streamline updates. The effects have already started to appear: 600 million devices were running Android Pie a year after its launch, while the Oreo reached 300 million phones and tablets a year after it was released.
