Will my phone get Android 10?

Android 10 is upon us, and whether you’re excited about its new permission settings for apps or the glorious dark mode, there are plenty of reasons to be eager for Google’s latest and greatest.

If you have an Android phone, you’ll be familiar with the update process for Android versions: Google launches a beta, eventually pushing that to Pixel devices, before manufacturers roll-out to other devices about 6 months later.

The Android 10 beta was announced on 13 March 2019 and the final release began to roll out from 3 September to Pixel phones. Thanks to both Google and beta testers in the beta phase, we know nearly every new feature included in Android 10. There’s a system-wide dark mode, a Bubbles multitasking feature, and more.

When will Android 10 be released to smartphones and which devices will be eligible for this update?

Below is the list of eligible devices for all the Major OEMS and breakdown when exactly you can expect android 10 on your device

Google Pixel

Of Course Googles pixel is the first in the line to receive android 10 update . All the below mentioned Pixel devices are eligible to receive the updates

  • Pixel 3a/ Pixel 3aXL
  • Pixel 2/ Pixel 3XL
  • Pixel 2/ Pixel 2XL
  • Pixel / Pixel XL

As of September 3, Update has already started rolling out for these devices. If you still dint receive the update go to Settings > System > System Update to check for the update.

Samsung

Samsung is one of the biggest player in the android and smart phone world. As always Samsung is little late to deliver the updates to existing line up

  • Samsung Note 10 and Note 10+
  • Samsung S10, S10+ and S10e
  • Samsung Note 9
  • Samsung S9 and S9+

Since Samsung has not yet shared the roadmap there might be chances below devices also getting Android 10

  • Samsung Note8
  • Samsung S8 and S8+

As usual, expect to see updates begin around the time the Galaxy S11 is announced when all the kinks are worked out.

Huawei

Huawei is one of the world’s largest smartphone OEMs, with its devices ranging from high-end flagships to low-cost budget options. On August 9, Huawei shared a list of devices that it plans on updating to EMUI 10 (aka its version of Android 10). Then, on September 9, Huawei shared some release date information as to when we can look forward to said EMUI 10 update. Here’s what we have so far:

  • Mate 20 (December 2019)
  • Mate 20 Pro (December 2019)
  • Mate 20 Lite (Q2 2020)
  • PORSCHE DESIGN Mate 20 RS (December 2019)

  • HONOR 10 Lite (Q2 2020)
  • HONOR 10 (Q2 2020)
  • HONOR 8X (Q2 2020)

While talking about Huawei and software updates, it’s important to briefly mention the company’s current trade ban from the United States. As of right now, Huawei will still be allowed to update its existing devices to Android 10, meaning owners of devices like the P30 and Mate 20 shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

It remains more unclear how the ban will affect new Huawei phones that are released later this year and in 2020, plus with things seeming to always change on this front, who knows what’ll happen in a month or two.

Should anything significant happen with Huawei’s ability to update its phones to Android 10, we’ll be sure to let you know.
