More phones than ever will get early access to Android 10

Top 10 Less Known Apps For Android With More Than 100 Million Downloads

While there's still an exclusive period for Pixel and still-supported Nexus phones, Google has started a beta testing phase for seven OEMs previous year. At last year's Google I/O, the Mountain View search engine giant had unveiled their Android P (Pie) developer preview.

Google released the final version of the Android 9 Pie previous year and the first phones to get the software update were the Pixels, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, some Sony Xperia devices, among others.

We've been wondering when the beta for Android Q would land, given that past releases have all occurred at around this time of year. Last year, seven OEMs (apart from Google) offered to help Google test Android Pie on their devices: Essential Phone, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21, and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.

It was a rather unprecedented and definitely welcome move by Google. Google is expected to release the first Android Q developer preview this month, and showcase the Android Q Beta (developer preview 2) at Google I/O 2019 in May this year.

This piece of information was revealed by Android Developer Mr. Illiyan Malchev in the Android Developers Backstage podcast (Source: XDA Developers).

This year, however, Google is planning to team up with more smartphone manufacturers to include more devices in the queue for Android Q Beta program.

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. The first Android P developer preview was released in March, with the second Android P developer preview, known as Android P Beta, released at Google I/O in May past year and featuring several OEMs in the beta programme. I can not share the exact numbers yet.
