List of smartphones getting Android 10 update– 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. Many many thanks to both the Google and the beta testers in the beta phase, where we know nearly every new feature included in Android 10. There is a system-wide dark mode, a Bubbles multitasking feature, and more. Check out what else is new here.

Google announced Android Q in March, changed it to Android 10 in August, and allowed beta testers to trial the software before the official launch on 3 September 2019 for all Google Pixel devices. Other Android devices will need to wait until later this year or next year to get the update.

If you own a different Android phone, you will probably have to wait anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Some devices, including older ones, may not even get the update. 

Asus

The Asus hasn’t always been in the best position with Android updates – it can be a little haphazard. However it did have a phone on the Android 10 beta, so we know there’s an update incoming for at least one device. At launch, Asus promised the Zenfone 6 would get Android 10.

BlackBerry Smartphones

The BlackBerry has been slow to update phones, even if it does manage to stay on top of security updates. The BlackBerry Key2 was confirmed to be getting Android 10 on its update path, but no official timeframe has been announced yet.

Essential Phones

The Essential Phone has already pushed out the Android 10 update to open market customers.

  • Essential Phone – 3 Sept 2019

HTC

HTC has only just started delivering Android Pie, and with the company virtually giving up on phones, we don’t want to get your hopes up about Android 10.

Huawei

Huawei is in an interesting position. Having become the darling of Android smartphones over the past couple of years, increasing tensions between the US and China has seen business get more difficult for Huawei. However, the company has stepped up to confirm the position on Android 10.

Huawei says that the following devices are already approved for Android 10 and is in the beta programme.

  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro

However, Huawei has also confirmed that the following devices are “submitted” for approval for Android 10 too. That’s not a cast-iron guarantee, more a statement of intent, but this situation remains fluid, so we’ll update as we learn more. The update on all these devices is expected to be part of the EMUI 10 update. Huawei had previously said on Weibo that it would be pushing the update soon after the Pixel, although that position might now be different.

Nokia

List of Nokia phones getting Android 10 update

Nokia’s record with updates is good. The company uses Android One on most of its devices and successfully updated most of its devices to Android Pie before anyone else. We’d expect the same for Android 10. It already has one device in the beta and you can expect that to be first to update.

Nokia has also confirmed that many of its other phones will receive the Android 10 update, and when they’re due to land. It depends on which model you have, you could see the rollout hit your phone anytime from Q4 2019 through to Q2 2020. The list below is organized chronologically based on when the phones will receive updates.

List of Nokia phones getting Android 10 update

OnePlus

List of OnePlus smartphones getting Android 10 update

OnePlus is good with updates. Not only does it move quickly to update its newer devices, but we see this rolling back to older phones too. It also has a wide range of devices in the Android 10 beta – meaning these phones will end up with Android 10:

  • OnePlus 6
  • OnePlus 6T
  • OnePlus 7
  • OnePlus 7 Pro

Oppo

List of smartphones getting Android 10 update

Oppo is rather more new to global markets so we’ve not been through the Android update process as we have with other manufacturers. Oppo has put the standard Reno in the 10 beta, so we know it will get the final version. We suspect the other Reno models will be included too.

  • Oppo Reno

Razer

We’ve nothing on Razer right now.

Realme

Realme is the budget brand of Oppo and although it’s just getting started in its global march, it’s also on the Android 10 beta, so there’s some hope for a rapid update.

  • Realme 3 Pro

Redmi

It looks like some Redmi flagship devices will be updated to Android 10 following a tweet suggesting that these devices will see some Android 10 action:

List of Redmi smartphones getting Android 10 update

  • Redmi K20 Pro – Q4 2019
  • Redmi K20 – Q4 2019
  • Redmi Note 7 – Q1 2020
  • Redmi Note 7 Pro – Q1 2020

XDA Developers has also spotted that Xiaomi is now updating the Redmi K20 Pro in India and China.

Samsung

Samsung doesn’t feel the need to update rapidly. Its own One UI rolled out bringing Android Pie and we suspect that we won’t see Android 10 on its devices until the Galaxy S11 is launched in 2020. Don’t expect any movement until March 2020.

Sony Xperia

Sony’s record on updates isn’t great, but it does have the Xperia XZ3 in the Q beta. That’s good news, because the 2018 phone is likely to be able to move to the final build soon after it goes live.

  • Sony Xperia XZ3

Vivo

Vivo has a couple of phones on the beta list for Android 10, so that’s confirmation of a couple of devices that will definitely get the update.

  • Vivo NEX S
  • Vivo X27
  • Vivo NEX A

Xiaomi

Xiaomi is also pretty new to global markets, but it seems to be taking Android 10 pretty seriously, with two devices involved in the beta, meaning they will get the update. We’d also except the Android One phones to get it too. Elsewhere, a timeline shared on Twitter suggests a range of Xiaomi devices. Pocophone has also been confirmed.
