Google Pixel 2 caught running Android Q

Google released the final version of the Android 9 Pie previous year and the first phones to get the software update were the Pixels, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, some Sony Xperia devices, among others.

For Android Q, there's the hope that more phones from more manufacturers will join the pre-release ranks in engaging its users in new software. For reference, we tend to release the new version of Android some time in August.

As Android Police reports, Iliyan Malchev from Google's Project Treble team revealed the move in a discussion on the Android Developers Backstage podcast. According to a bug tracker for Android Q Beta as spotted by Mishaal Rahman of XDA, the latest Android version is scheduled for launch later today. We need to wait for a few more months for it. Comment in the section below if you have more queries and stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more. We had, I believe, eight OEMs including Pixels, so seven OEMs other than Pixel.

A big surprise regarding the Android P beta a year ago was the inclusion of third-party manufacturers in the initiative.

We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for this, but if it does launch today like Android P's first preview in mid-March 2018, Google Pixel owners should be able to test out the software themselves. A news about the Android Q has been leaked and it suggests that more and more smartphones will get the Android Q Beta update when compared to Android 9 Pie. If it's similar to Android Pie in release schedule, we might even seen the first developer previews landing very soon. As you might notice, big names like Samsung, LG, and Huawei are missing from the list, but this year the number of Android smartphones that will be compatible with the Android Q Beta will be bigger. It's likely that the first Android Q beta will be available on some of this year's hottest flagships, in addition to the Pixel 3 series.
