Looking for Android 9 Pie update information? We will cover you.
1. Android 10 Major Update
September 3, 2019: On Twitter, Essential Announces Android 10 is now rolling out to Basic Phone . The company noted that the update is being introduced "for select customers in the open market." Android 10 should be available to all primary phone owners in the coming days.
OnePlus Update for Android 10
Last year was a turning point for OnePlus in terms of updates. The OnePlus 6T launches with Android 9 Pie pre-installed, while the OnePlus 5, 5T and 6 receive the update by the end of the year. It took May 2019 for OnePlus 3 and 3T to get Pie, but it's a wonder that phones received their third major Android updates in the first place.
Expect OnePlus 7 Pro to get the first choice of Android 10, followed by OnePlus 6 and 6T. This is a sweep with the OnePlus 5 and 5T, as both phones have already received two major Android updates. Perhaps OnePlus will surprise everyone and update the two flagships of 2017 with the latest version of Android, even if the waiting game may be much longer.
Android 10 launches ETA: September 2019
September 3, 2019: On the same day that the official launch of Android 10, OnePlus announced a beta of Android 10 for Android OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. This is not a stable release, but a good first step towards achieving this ETA, which we mentioned above. More details here.
September 4, 2019: OnePlus announced that the OnePlus 6 and 6T will receive Android 10 by the end of this month. The company also released open beta versions of both phones that are "designed to prepare your devices for Android 10 update" – learn more here.
September 18, 2019: OnePlus has released the second Open Beta for Android 10 for OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro. The update seems to include mostly bug fixes and small design changes – learn more here.
3. Samsung Android 10 Update
Samsung does not have the best update record, but the company rolled out a new listing in 2018, when she announced Pie for nearly 30 of its devices. Better yet, Samsung mostly sticks to its updated roadmap. It took a little longer than we wanted, but phones like the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 received a Pie before the end of January.

With Android 10, Samsung can announce a similar roadmap. This means that owners of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 may have to wait until next year to receive the update, with other Samsung devices receiving the update at some point thereafter.
However, we have heard that T-Mobile is already testing Android 10 builds for Galaxy S10 and Note 10. If true, this may mean that we may see an Android 10 version for Samsung's flagship flagships earlier than we expected.
Android 10 Launch: January 2020
September 17, 2019: It looks like Samsung is about to release its first Android 10 beta update. Rumors are that the company will launch it in the US and Europe in early October. There's no word on which devices will get it, but it's good to bet we'll see it in new flagships like the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10.
September 19, 2019: The Samsung Roadmap for Android 10, which shows Galaxy phones that will receive the latest version of the OS, has apparently expired. It includes a bunch of Galaxy Note, Galaxy S, Galaxy A and Galaxy M series devices, among others. To see all of them, check out our specialized post here.
4. Nokia Android 10 Update
Nokia has rolled out its update game for something right in 2018, with most of its flagship ships receiving Android 9 Pie by the end of the year . Some lower-end and older smartphones had to wait until this year to receive the Pie, but Nokia has made it clear that it is taking the updates seriously.

Fortunately, things don't seem to change much with Android 10. According to Nokia, it will update devices your Android 10 in five waves. The company will spread the waves from the fourth quarter of 2019 to the second quarter of 2020. Expect leading and high-end mid-range rangers to receive priority, followed by mid- and low-end smartphones in the Nokia range.
Launch ETA for Android 10: October 2019
5. Huawei / Honor Android 10 update
Huawei was surprisingly fast with Pie, pushing the update to various flagships by the end of 2018. Even a handful of Honor flagships received Pei along with Huawei's flagships, although updates slowed significantly in 2019.

Unfortunately, Huawei is in a pickle. Although it has announced a beta version of EMUI 10 based on Android 10, we do not know if the beta will be available worldwide or only in China. Huawei has promised its flagship line and some Honor devices will receive Android 10, but this was before the U.S. ban on trading began. At best, the situation with the Huawei update is very grim.
Android 10 ETA Launched: November 2019
September 9, 2019: On IFA 2019, Huawei revealed its EMUI 10 Update Roadmap Android 10. Huawei will first roll out the latest version of Android to the P30 and P30 Pro in November. The update will then make its way to the Mate 20 phones, as well as the Honor 20 and View 20 months later. The P30 Lite, P20 and Mate 10 series will receive an update in March 2020, while other supported Huawei / Honor phones will get it sometime in Q2 next year.
6. Xiaomi Update for Android 10
September 3, 2019: Surprisingly, Xiaomi is already rolling out Android 10 to the Redmi K20 Pro. According to XDA-Developers & # 39; Mishal Rahman, the update is only available in China . That said, K20 Pro owners around the world should expect to receive Android 10 soon.
September 12, 2019: It looks like the Android 10 update for the Xiaomi Mi 9T (also known as the Redmi K20) is just around the corner. Xiaomi told AusDroid that it plans to introduce it in October.
7. Motorola Android 10 Update
Although Motorola took out Pie on quite a number of its smartphones, it took the last day of December for a smartphone which is not Android One to get the update. Even worse, Pie appeared on one of Motorola's mid-range smartphones before appearing on the Moto Z3.

We expect a similar sporadic Motorola roadmap for Android 10. The company's Android One smartphones are likely to be first in line, followed by its devices, other than Android One.
Android 10 ETA Launch: November 2019
8. Sony Android 10 Update
Even with the troubled smartphone business, Sony has been quietly consistent when it comes to updates in recent years. That quiet sequence did not change in 2018 when it updated its flagship Xperia XZ1 and XZ2 before Thanksgiving.

We have no reason to believe that Sony will downplay its stable update record with Android 10. As usual, flagships will receive first update data followed by mid-rangers.
Android 10 ETA Launched: October 2019
9. LG Android 10 Update
With the Software Update Center, LG's bad records in the update must have been past. Instead, it takes until January for every company smartphone to get a whiff of a pie. Even worse, it may be until the US versions of LG's smartphones get the update.

Unfortunately, we don't think much will change with Android 10. Even with phones like the G8 and V50 packing the latest insider data, do not expect any phone to receive Android 10 before the end of 2019.
Launch Android 10 ETA: January 2020  10. Update for HTC Android 10
HTC reached a new set of updates in 2018 when the company released Pie on just one of its smartphones. We'll have to wait until June to get HTC's current UC Plus flagship to get Pie, followed by U11 and U11 Plus.
Also read: Here are the best HTC phones you can buy right now.  The HTC update game will probably stay just as bad with Android 10. Android One version of U11 Life will probably get Android 10 before ending in 2019, followed by leading HTC sometime next year.
Launch ETA for Android 10: November 2019
11. Update on Asus Android 10
It took Asus a little bit to push the pie, but the company has been constantly pushing the update to its phones since December 2018 d. It was surprising to see so many Asus smartphones in my updated roadmap, but it was a more pleasant surprise. You can expect phones like the Zenfone 4 to be forgotten, but it won't – Asus pulled the Pie beta in June.
With Android 10, expect Asus to make a similar commitment. That means you may have to wait until the new year to get the update, but at least it's coming (probably).
Android 10 Launch: December 2019
12. Oppo Android 10 Update
Oppo remains silent on its Pie update plans until March when the company announced ColorOS 6 pie-based skin. In China, removal began in April with Reno. Other Oppo smartphones have also received the update, albeit in beta.
We're not sure why it takes Oppo so long to push Pie, but we're expecting a similar slow release for Android 10.
Android 10 launches ETA: April 2020
13 . Vivo Update for Android 10
Vivo technically fulfilled its promise to update its Pie phones at the end of 2018. However, we we would not see the stable version until March. Even stranger, Pie only appeared on a handful of Vivo smartphones.
With such a weird update schedule, we wouldn't be surprised if Vivo launches the stable version of Android 10 next year. Then again, the Vivo X27 is part of the beta program of Android 10, so we could see it a little earlier.
Launch Android 10 ETA: March 2020
14. Update on Realme Android 10
Realme jumped on stage in 2018 with multiple smartphones, but the company fight deliver timely updates. We have not seen the stable Pie release to Realme smartphones by May, a long wait for anyone interested in updates.
Here's to hoping Realme doesn't wait nearly as long as it pushes Android 10. The signs are pointing up above to see how Realme 3 Pro is part of the Android 10 beta program. We understand Realme is a relatively new brand, so here's hoping its slow pace with updates to dial.
Android 10 launch: ETA 2020 May 2020
September 13, 2019: Realme unveiled its Android 10 roadmap. The company will first bring Android 10 to Realme 3 Pro, Realme 5 Pro, Realme X and Realme XT in Q1 2020. The update will then make its way to Realme 3, 3i and 5 in Q2 and to Realme 2 Pro in Q3.
