| Updated on January 31, 2020 with new information.
Android 10 is officially out, but many phones won't have it in 2019, and others can't get it at all. With this page you at least know when.
Despite all improvements in the Android update process, only 10.4% of the devices were updated to Android Pie (9.0) from nine months after the release. That's better than it was with Oreo (8.0), so hopefully this trend continues with Android 10.
The thing is that most users want Android 10. With a real system-wide dark mode, new motion controls, many privacy improvements and more, this is not something to miss. So if you think your phone may be getting Android 1
About this list
For each phone in this list, we call it as & # 39; Confirmed & # 39; & # 39; (with an official date or time required to release the update), & # 39; Beta & # 39; (with the latest version number that is supported), & # 39; Rumors & # 39; or & # 39; No information & # 39 ;. When an American variant of the phone officially receives Android 10 after the update is released, the name will be bold .
As with our previous list, we will focus exclusively on officially released smartphones in the US. This means that we exclude Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and other Chinese brands. Even if the international version of the phone is available through official stores (for example Huawei P30 via B&H), it is not on our list, as it is technically still not an official release. These versions usually do not include a US guarantee.
Apart from US availability, if your phone is not in this list, this is because we have not found anything that suggests an ongoing Android 10 update . You could still get the update, but I would find it unlikely.
ASUS was pretty bad when it came to updating its devices to Pie. This year they get the ball rolling by recruiting their own Android 10 beta program. Until November 24, applicants can sign up to receive OTA updates from the beta version of the latest version of ZenUI (presumably 7.0) running on Android 10. This program contains both the ZenFone 6 and 5Z. There is also a similar program for the top class ROG Phone II.
Although consumers are not sure whether Essential will ever release another phone, the company founded by Android co-founder, Andy Rubin, is downright impressive when it comes to software updates for two year old device.
The Essential PH-1 is the only non-Pixel phone that receives updates on the same day they are released, including monthly security patches. For the context, the Essential PH-1 received Android Pie within two hours of the Pixel 2 and 2 XL receiving the official build. This year is no different, with the PH-1 on the stable version of Android 10 less than an hour after Google released the official build on Pixel devices.
In addition to stock Android, the largest reason to use a Pixel device is a guarantee that you will receive every monthly security patch for three years and both major software updates for two years. Pixel phones are the first with the latest version of Android and the first with the Beta program.
Like previous years, Google has updated every phone in the line-up. Even the middle class Pixel 3a and 3a XL has received Android 10. If you have a Google Pixel or Google Pixel XL, keep in mind that this is the latest guaranteed software update for your device, so it may not be possible to run Android 11. If you want the latest updates, you have to upgrade the following year.
From the major Android OEMs in the US, LG takes the crown the worst software updates. Although the LG G8 ThinQ is part of the Android 10 beta program, American users are left in the dark, wondering when their device will get the latest version. Unlike many of the OEMs on our list, LG has not released a timeline about when their devices will get it. So for now we can only report the LG G8 ThinQ Sprint variant, because the carrier has confirmed the update.
While Motorola was one of the better OEM & # 39; s to get their phones on Android 9 Pie, they have been relatively quiet when it comes to Android 10. Although Motorola by 2019 has released too many phones on the US market, we still expect all those phones and those released in 2018 to have at least a timeline for Android 10 that we didn't receive. Fortunately there is finally confirmation that the Motorola One Action will receive Android 10, so that is a good sign for other Motorola handsets.
With almost the entire lineup in the Android One program, Nokia has been one of the best OEMs when updating its devices. Last year, HMD promised that almost the entire US line-up would receive Android 9 Pie, and they delivered. This year, HMD promises that on a few older devices (such as the Nokia 2), Android 10 will be available between the end of 2019 and the second half of 2020, and they are currently on schedule for this timeline. It's safe to say that if you want a low-end phone that keeps getting support, Nokia is one of the best options.
OnePlus has established a policy similar to Android One, which promises two years of software updates and three years of security patches for all its phones. That means that every phone that starts with the OnePlus 5 will get Android 10.
OnePlus released their Open Beta version of Android 10 on the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro on the same day that Google officially made the update. It should take a few months for the stable version to be released on all their devices, but based on last year they expect them to arrive on time. So far, OnePlus is on schedule, with both the flagships of last year (OnePlus 6 and 6T) and this year (OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7T) already on Android 10.
If you use our Android Pie-tracker, you will see that Samsung was one of the better OEMs for updating their phones. The company managed to get all its flagship phones from the past two years on Android Pie within six months.
Samsung is in full swing when it comes to pushing out Android 10. The Galaxy S10 + has more than four updates about the beta version, while the Galaxy Note 10+ has received two updates. Samsung has also released the beta version for the Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 series from December 2019. So expect that all Samsung flagship devices from 2018 and 2019 will have Android 10 before the announcement of the Galaxy S11.
