LineageOS has had a legacy of being a prominent custom ROM. Since they have maintained a reputation for being one of the most secure custom ROMs in the Android aftermarket industry. According to XDA Developers, the LineageOS team is rolling out the latest LineageOS 19 support to several devices.
Since the debuting of the ROM earlier this year in April, devices like the Samsung Galaxy S10, POCO F3, and OnePlus 5/5T have received support for the Android 12-based custom ROM. However, the team has added four new devices to the official build roster.
What new devices support LineageOS 19?
The following devices have received official support for LineageOS 19:
- OnePlus 9
- OnePlus 9 Pro
- Xiaomi Mi A1
- POCO X3 Pro
The OnePlus 9 community is no stranger to Android 12, thanks to the OxygenOS 12 update from the OnePlus and the sheer number of custom ROMs. The POCO X3 Pro also picked up Android 12 from its maker in the form of MIUI 13.
The Mi A1, however, has a different story. Firstly, Xiaomi’s Android One smartphone didn’t get anything beyond Android Pie via official updates.
