Here is the rest of the list of smartphone brands and the most likely time their devices will get Android 10 updates. If you have not found yours on the first part of the list, read on to find out.
It came as no surprise that HMD Global would reveal the list of Nokia phones that would get Google’s latest OS. However, Nokia did it so quickly that the news started lots of users. Just a few minutes after the announcement of Android 10, the list of update schedule was sent through.
From the list of participants in Android 10 beta program, we can be sure that Nokia 8.1 is one of the firsts to get the update, joining Nokia 9 PureView and Nokia 7.1 in the last quarter of 2019 to get the upgrade.
Seven of the company’s phones, including Nokia 3.2, Nokia 7 Plus, and Nokia 8 Sirocco will get it some pint in the first three months of next year. The second quarter of 2020 will see the updates coming to Nokia 2.1, 3.1, 5.1, and Nokia 1.
The list of phones and the expected dates can be found down below.
Since it makes use of Android One, Nokia is known to be quick with software updates. While it has launched some carrier-focus phones but most of its devices still run on Android One.
Nokia devices that will receive Android 10 upgrade, arranged by date:
Mid-Q4 2019: Nokia PureView, Nokia 8.1, and Nokia 7.1.
Late Q4 2019 to Q1 2020: Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Plus.
Early/mid Q1 2020: Nokia 4.2, Nokia 3.2, Nokia 3.1, and Nokia 2.2.
Mid/late Q1 2020: Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 5.1 Plus, and Nokia 1 Plus.
Mid Q2 2020: Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1, Nokia 2.1, and Nokia 1.
OnePlus was quite active in the Android 10 beta program with three of its latest offers, the OnePlus 6T, OnePlus 7, and OnePlus 7 Pro all have access to the beta version. In fact, the company just released an update, so now Android 10 is accessible via OxygenOS Open Beta.
OnePlus has made a name for itself as a brand that is quite generous when it comes to updates. And that shows in how Android 9 Pie came to devices released as far back as OnePlus 3.
Expecting OnePlus 3 or 3T to get Android 10 is far-fetched. OnePlus 5 smartphone and above are more likely.
OnePlus devices that have already had access to Android 10: OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro.
Expected OnePlus phones that may get the upgrade: OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 6, and OnePlus 6T.
Oppo has only one of its phones in the Android 10 beta program, the Oppo Reno. So we may expect it to get the updates.
Oppo has always been quite open about its plans but observing its own deadlines has never been the company’s strong point. So it is safe to say that it may miss another one this time.
Expected Oppo phone to get Android 10: Oppo Reno.
Realme has maintained the habit of surprising its users for some time now, first with the way it appeared out of thin air and gained a solid place on the smartphone market, and now with the way it put the Realme 3 Pro on the Android 10 beta program.
So for now, the most likely name is Realme 3 Pro, and we have no idea about other, cheaper smartphones from the company.
Expected Realme phone that will receive Android 10: Realme 3 Pro.
There is no doubt that Samsung has enough resource to offer its users a massive list of smartphones that will get updates. However, until we have something like a confirmed list, our best guess is the last few years’ flagships, except for Note 8 and Galaxy S8, because they have already had their major OS updates.
With that said, Samsung is not known for being fast with something like this. Last year saw the company rolling out updates before the year ended; however, this should be treated as an exception rather than something the Korean tech giant will do from now on.
Expected Samsung phones that may get Android 10: Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note 9, Samsung Galaxy S10e, Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Fold, Samsung Galaxy Note 10, and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus.
Sony has always had preferential treatment, and we do not expect things will go differently this year. So the most likely names are Xperia XZ3, Xperia 10, and Xperia XZ2. If you own mid-range Sony smartphones, the chances of you getting this year’s updates are thin.
Sony smartphones that may get Android 10: Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium, Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact, Sony Xperia XZ2, Sony Xperia XZ3, Sony Xperia 10, and Sony Xperia 1.
Vivo has three of its smartphones on the Android 10 beta program, but the company has released any information on the timetable for the upgrade. As the OS ages, we may see more Vivo devices to get it.
List of Vivo’s phones that may have Android 10 upgrade: Vivo Nex A, Vivo Nex S, and Vivo X27.
Xiaomi put forward two smartphones to join Android 10 beta program, so they are the only candidates we have hope for at the moment. In China, we have Redmi K20 Pro, and it seems like the company will focus most of its effort on its home market.
Expected Xiaomi phones to get Android 10: Redmi K20 Pro, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, and Xiaomi Mi 9.
