Android PIe Device list

Now that Android 9 Pie is live, the first thing that comes to mind is when our Android device will receive the new update. The exciting new features of Android Update and the new gesture navigation is not something anyone would want to miss.

However, given the track record of smartphone manufacturers, latest Android versions have never delivered right away. Don’t you remember how much time Android 8.1 Oreo took to arrive on your device? And yet, it is behind from Android Nougat in terms of Android share percentage.

It’s entirely imaginable while your device would get Android P, Google may have already released Android Q beta version (I wonder what Android Q will be called).

To overcome Android fragmentation, Google has come up with solutions like Android One and Google Beta program, there is only so much it can do. At the end of the day, it’s between the device and the device maker.

(I hope your device maker is generous enough like OnePlus, giving away Android 9 Pie to all its devices.)

That’s out of the way, let’s move on with our list of Android devices getting Android P. We will be continuously updating this article as soon as we see any new official announcements.

Complete list of smartphones receiving Android Pie

1. Google

Of course! Google’s own line of devices was the first to receive the latest Android version. In fact, the whole Google Pixel family is enjoying the Pie while we’re talking about it —

  1. Google Pixel and Pixel XL
  2. Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL
  3. Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

It is unlikely that Android P will arrive on Nexus devices (Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X), considering the lost “update support” due to Google’s security update policies.

2. Nokia

Nokia has exponentially upped their game with their line of Android devices.

All of these devices work on Android One – A Google’s parallel project which provides true stock experience on non-pixel devices.

3. Essential Phone

Essential PH-1 was the first device, after Google Pixel, to get the Android P update. Before this, Essential was part of the Google beta program, meaning it already had a scope for an early stable release.

Not only Essential was quick enough to grab the Android update. It is also maintaining the track record via keeping the device up-to-date with security patches from Google.

4. OnePlus

OnePlus, the Chinese smartphone-maker has already become one of the most popular Android brands. The high performing devices with reasonable prices have charmed all the Android users around the world.

Its recent flagship OnePlus 6T is already bundled with Android 9 Pie and soon each of its devices will have the taste of Pie.

7. Sony

Sony has done spectacularly in cameras, TV’s, and game consoles, but when it comes to the smartphone industry, the company is trying its best to stay in the competition. For instance, Sony XZ2 in the Android Pie beta program, which was a much-needed revival for the company.

As of now, Sony is rolling out Android Pie updates on Xperia XZ Premium, XZ1 and XZ1 Compact. Other Xperia devices will soon follow up.

8. Samsung

If we’d have to rank device makers on the amount of time taken to release the Android version; Samsung would probably stand at the end. Regardless, smiling, given its one of the top manufacturers in the world.

Samsung has introduced a new skin – One UI which is based on Android P. Presently, Samsung Galaxy S9, S9 Plus and Note 9 are on the Android Pie Beta program.

9. LG

Korean electronic is gaining new heights, but its mobile division is continuously dropping with low sales every year. Although many LG devices are eligible for Android Pie, their hopeless phone market is prompting a much-delayed update rollout.

Presently, LG G7 One (Android One) is the only company’s device which has received the Android Pie update. And the year is ending, LG has still not commented on which phones will get the Android 9 update.

Meanwhile, we like to think these would probably be one to get Android P in coming future – LG V35 ThinQ, LG Q Stylus, LG V30S Thin Q, LG G7 Thin Q, LG Q7, LG V30+

9. HTC

HTC is steadily losing out in the smartphone market. In fact, many HTC smartphones have already faded out against back-to-back releases from Chinese companies, which is why the company is now trying to hold off its loyal consumers with Android 9 update.

The company announced that its HTC U lineup will be receiving Android Pie update. However, no timelines have been mentioned just yet.

Since HTC U11 Life is an Android One device, it will likely receive Android Pie update first.

10 – Motorola

Lenovo-owned Motorola has always kept a consumer-centric approach for their smartphones. Hence, we see Moto phones focusing on affordable prices, fast applications, and a genuine android experience. Certainly, the company won’t hold back when it comes to new Android updates.

In the past, Motorola stated that they are working non-stop to optimize Android Pie for Moto devices.

Other device manufacturers delivering Android Pie:

Blackberry

in 2018, Blackberry launched their Android phone  – Blackberry Key Two. So we would likely see Android Pie on the device, but I cannot say the same for Blackberry Key One.

As of now, there is no information regarding the Android Pie update in Blackberry Key models.

Vivo

Vivo confirmed that it will release Android Pie on its devices in Q4 2018. However, many devices are yet to receive the update. its devices work on Funtouch OS based on Android.

Vivo X21 and X21 UD were part of the Google beta program, so it is apparent that they will receive it first. Other Vivo devices that are eligible for Android Pie: Vivo Nex A, Nex S and Vivo V9.

Oppo

As of now, speculation is that Oppo Find X, Oppo R15, and Oppo R15 Pro will receive the Android P. Since Oppo R15 was part of the beta program, it is likely to get the update first. The company has yet to comment on Android P updates on its devices.
