Android Q Beta arrives at atleast 15 Non-Google Phones


Google’s Android is without a doubt the most frequently used mobile OS out there. In 2018, Google released the Android 9 Pie to devices other than Pixel phones too. This was an unusual but successful move. Following the success of its decision, Google is doing, even more, this year. There are reports that at least 21 phones from 13 brands (including Pixel) will get the Android Q system. The likes of Sony, OnePlus, Nokia, LG, Asus, Vivo, and Xiaomi are all scheduled to receive this update as it lands. All Pixel phones including the maiden Google Pixel will get this update.

The list above contains the verified devices to get this update, others may be added. As expected, the new system will come with a couple of new features including full-screen swipe gestures, dark theme and more. As a beta update, we will generally expect some bugs but this is the third beta release thus the system is expected to be quite clean. Although this beta is primarily for app testing by developers, you can still have it installed if you want to have a first feel of the Android Q system. Nevertheless, you may want to be careful with installing this update.
