More phones than ever will get early access to Android 10

More phones than ever will get early access to Android 10

Moreover, Android Q Beta could launch with support for more smartphones than Android P Beta.

First found by xda-developer's Mishaal Rahman, the bug tracker for Android Q is already online.

Project Treble is Google's move to make it easier for phone makers to update Android on their devices, separating the actual Android code from the layers that these other companies add on top - which should mean updates get pushed out faster.

As we know the first Android P Developer Preview build was launched in the middle of March 2018 and now nearly at the same time, we could see the Android Q Beta getting released.

Mr. Malchev could not share the exact number of devices that will be part of the Android Q Beta Program, nor could he reveal which devices would be a part of it.

Illiyan: Yeah, in fact it was fully due to Treble. And I think it was for the first time we had all of these companies line up to do developer previews and betas for Android Pie well ahead of the AOSP publication date. Generally, we have seen Google launching its new Android Versions around August and we can expect the same this year also. So at Google I/O [2018], when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that incredible.

It's worth pointing out that the early beta releases are very unstable, and tend to take away a lot of features in devices that would otherwise work on a stable version of Android. I can not share the exact numbers yet. Are you excited to get this new flavor of Android on your device? When Google released the first Android P beta a year ago, it supported a variety of devices not just the Pixel 2. The seven smartphones, which received the Android Pie Beta were Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Sony Xperia XZ2, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21 and the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.

Illiyan didn't reveal the exact number of devices that will possibly be a part of the Android Q Beta Program, neither did he identify the phones.
