Many of us were impatiently waiting for the newest OS for Android and now it’s finally here. But can you already get Android Pie on your device? And when? Luckily for you, we have the answers to these questions. Some manufacturers have already announced when their devices will get the new operating system. So let’s take a look at when Pie will become available for different devices.
It should be obvious that the tech giant would not make people who have their phones wait for the update. So Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL already have Android P.
This company was part of the Android P beta program and now Essential phones get to be upgraded to Pie.
In case you own a Motorola phone, you will need to wait a little bit more. Based on what we know from the manufacturer, Moto Z3, Moto Z3 Play, Moto Z2 Force Edition, Moto Z2 Play, Moto X4, Moto G6 Plus, Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play will become eligible for the newest update in the autumn, though no specific data was given.
The company mentioned that there is no official date yet for when HTC U12+, HTC U11, HTC U11+ and HTCU11 will get Pie, but it should happen a little bit later, at the appropriate time.
It is expected for discussions about the updates for Galaxy S9, S9+ and Note 9 to take place around March, and then few months later for the upgrade to become available for Samsung devices.
Devices from Sony will also get Pie in the autumn, so you should expect the update to become available in November. However, this only applies to the following devices: Xperia XZ2, Xperia XZ2 Premium, Xperia XZ2 compact, Xperia XZ Premium, XZ1 and XZ1 Compact. But if you have either XA2, XA2 Ultra or XA2 Plus, you will have a chance to upgrade to Pie in early 2019.
Even though OnePlus was included in the Android P beta program, the new upgrade has not reached their devices. OnePlus 6, OnePlus 5/5T and OnePlus 3/3T should start getting the new OS, exactly in this order, in the following months.
Unfortunately, the company has not provided any updates about when their phones will get the new Android P. We might have to wait a little bit longer for this.
