Better late than never, Google has finally rolled out Android 10. The new Android version features a number of user-friendly changes such as a system-wide dark mode, boosted privacy settings and a lot more.
But if we look at the track record, smartphone brands have never delivered the Android versions right away. Can you recall a time when you received an Android update on the day of its release? I guess not (Not everybody owns a Google Pixel, alright!)
If it’s any consolation to you, know that 28% of Android users still use Android Oreo and merely 10% have updated their devices to Android 9 (Pie).
But it’s not that bad — The Google Beta program had even more non-Google devices than we saw at the time of Android Pie release. Besides, the Android One program, and the Project Treble initiative from Google that have helped in improving Android update frequency.
There is no denying that the Android update situation has improved over the years, even for Samsung users, but it’s still baby steps. Often the device makers are at fault, but that’s a topic for another day.
In this article, let’s see when exactly you will get Android 10 on your device. We will be continuously updating this article as soon as we see any new official announcements.
