Since 2008, Android has seen numerous updates which have incrementally improved the operating system, adding new features and fixing bugs in previous releases.

Each major release is named in alphabetical order after a dessert or sugary treat, with the first few Android versions being called:

  1. Cupcake
  2. Donut
  3. Eclair
  4. Froyo

But things have changed, last Thursday, Google has announced that its next Android update will be called Android 10, breaking from a tradition that lasted 10 years.

This schedule fits with the phone list that’s already been in play for the Android Beta program for the software that’s just reached its final Beta earlier this month.

All the Google Pixel phones are on the list, that’s almost a given, but what other devices will get Android 10 right away?

If you’ve been using the latest Android Beta software for Android Q – recently re-named Android 10 – you’ll more than likely see a final update to Android 10 in September.

This goes for the Google Pixels:

  • Pixel 2 and 3.
  • Pixel XL.
  • Pixel 2 XL and 3 XL.
  • Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL.

These are just the Google-made phones that’ll get the update straight from Google.

The ASUS ZenFone 5Z was part of the beta program and will therefore almost certainly get the final update to Android 10.

This also goes for the Essential Phone (Android Q or Android 10) List:

  • PH-1
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
  • LG G8 ThinQ
  • Nokia 8.1
  • OnePlus 6T
  • OPPO Reno
  • Realme 3 Pro
  • Sony XPERIA XZ3
  • Techno Spark 3 Pro
  • Vivo X 27
  • Nex S
  • Nex A
  • Xiaomi Mi 9
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G.

Google said it decided on changing to Android code-name because the names weren’t always understood by everyone in the global community. It said its commitments to billions of Android users entail using names that “are clear and relatable for everyone in the world.”

This Beta program began in March of 2019 with Beta 1, then moved to Beta 2 in April, Beta 3 in May, and Beta 4 in June.

Users found Beta 5 released in July, then paused, then continued not long after a brief bit of mishap. The final pre-release beta update was Beta 6, and it sported gesture tweaks aplenty.

The new update will start arriving on smartphones in the coming weeks. However, HMD Global has announced 23 devices that will be getting Android 10.

List Of Android Q / Anddroid 10 Supported Devices

  1. Google Pixel 3
  2. Google Pixel 3 XL
  3. Google Pixel 3a
  4. Google Pixel 3a XL
  5. Google Pixel 2
  6. Google Pixel 2 XL
  7. Google Pixel

  19. Vivo Nex S
  20. Vivo Nex A
  21. Xiaomi Mi 9
  22. Xiaomi Mi

If we look to past updates, we see a slightly willy-nilly approach to day-of-week releases. Like the August 6, 2018 release of Android 9 Pie (that was a Monday). The August 21, 2017 release) of Android 8 Oreo was also a Monday.

The August 22nd, 2016 release of Android 7 Nougat was… also a Monday. Marshmallow, which was Android 6, was released in October!

That version of Android was released in 2015, on the 5th of October, which put its release on… a Monday.

It would seem that it’s pretty likely Google is apt to release their next version of Android on a Monday too – unless they do, indeed, decide that releasing on September’s first business day (aka not Labor Day, which is on September 2nd, a Monday.)

Either that, or we’ll see Android 10 released later today, a Monday, the 26th of August. September 9th, a Monday, would be outright.
