List of All Devices to Get Android P. Is Your Phone Listed

Browse By

Android P is here and keeping in mind that a great many people haven’t even received Android Oreo. This is the 9th version of the world’s most popular mobile OS owned by Google and with it comes a bunch of new features as well as upgrades to those that made their introduction with Oreo.

Regardless of the considerable number of new features that Android P guarantees, the most vital query is that numerous are asking is when? At the present time, everybody needs to know when Android P will touch base on their telephones, a question that isn’t so easy to answer. But of course, based on our own experience, we have some educated guesses of when to expect the OS on your phone and listed out all devices to get Android P. Is Your Phone Listed? Check the post.

Note that if your device is missing on the list, it’s likely not to receive Android P. But of course, this list is not final and as such, we’ll constantly update it with new info (devices) when we get it.

Google

As of this writing, Google Pixel and Pixel 2 users can already download and install Android P developer preview 1 on their handsets. Testing will go on for months before the stable version rolls out in Q3 2018.

HTC

HTC has already upgraded a good number of its handsets to Android 8.0 Oreoand is expected to do the same for the upcoming Android P. While we’d wish for the entire HTC U series to receive Android P, it’s unlikely to happen, but of course, this isn’t the final list of HTC phones that will receive P. Also, we don’t expect anything outside the U series to receive P.

Asus

Asus is expected to upgrade devices from 2017 and 2018 to Android P, more so those that came preinstalled with Nougat. We are talking the ZenFone 4 and ZenFone 5 families and probably the ZenFone 3s Max, which means the likes of ZenFone 3, including the flagship Deluxe, won’t be upgraded to P.

Asus ZenFone 5 (ZE620KL) Eligible Q4 2018

BlackBerry

BlackBerry hasn’t been around for long and even though it doesn’t have many devices to upgrade, it hasn’t been the best out there. The Canadian company has been slow with Oreo updates and we don’t expect anything different with Android P. Even worse is that we don’t think any of the device’s current handsets will be upgraded to P unless BB has a surprise in store.

Motorola

Motorola is no longer the go-to OEM for those looking for fast software updates. Even so, the Lenovo-owned company is still expected to upgrade a bunch of its phones to Android P, but mostly the flagship Moto Z handsets. The Moto G4 Plus is lucky to be on the Motorola Oreo update list, but the same can’t be said of the Moto G5 Plus or even the G5S Plus. Still, we have high hopes that last year’s Moto G family will be upgraded to Android P

Nokia

Nokia surprised many by announcing that it will from now henceforth release Android One phones. The list already consists of this year’s handsets, apart from the Nokia 1 that runs Android Go. Still, HMD promised that even the Nokia 1 will be upgraded to Android P, which means all current Nokia phones will receive P, with some like Nokia 8 Sirocco expected to get the update just about the same time as the Google Pixels.

Essential

Essential is expected to unveil the second-gen PH phone later this year, which should come preinstalled with Oreo. As for the OG PH-1, which came with Nougat out of the box and will be upgraded to Oreo, an update to Android P should arrive later this year, especially since the Oreo update adds support for faster updates through Project Treble.

Huawei

Huawei has been one of the most improved smartphone vendors concerning software updates. In addition to being among the first to release Oreo-powered handsets, the company has also upgraded a multitude of Huawei and Honor devices to Oreo. Given this track record, we expect Huawei to get even better with Android P, where we see it as part of this year’s Mate 20 series out of the box.

Samsung

Samsung’s top-tier phones from 2017 and 2018 will all be upgraded to Android P. While some powerful midrangers like the Galaxy A8 and A8+ may make it to P, we cannot guarantee this will be the case. On the contrary, nearly all Sammy phones that will be unveiled this year with Android Oreo out of the box will receive Android P, be it in the Galaxy S or the Galaxy J series.

Even more interesting is the fact that Samsung has plans to upgrade 3-year-old Galaxy S6 and Note 5 handsets to Oreo, which could suggest that the Galaxy S7 family may also be upgraded to Android P when the time comes. We are keeping our fingers crossed for this one!

As for now, we can say that if you own a Samsung phone that was announced in 2016 and before, including the high-end Galaxy S7 series, don’t expect an upgrade to Android P. If your handset is a 2017 model, don’t get your hopes too high unless you have any of the Galaxy S8 or Note 8 flagships, which are guaranteed the update to P alongside the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

LG

LG’s mobile phone division isn’t performing well, which is one reason we didn’t see the LG G7 at the MWC 2018 as the company is restrategizing before making what is expected to be a major comeback. Even with all the financial issues, LG hasn’t been deterred when it comes to software updates and we don’t expect any negative changes with respect to Android P, especially since there aren’t many devices to work on.

OnePlus

After disappointing a significant number of fans by failing to upgrade OnePlus 2 to Nougat, OnePlus did a pretty decent job upgrading the newer handsets. However, we don’t expect all of the current Oreo-powered OnePlus phones to receive Android P.

Sony

Sony is one of the most consistent non-Google OEM when it comes to software updates matters. This is largely because the company contributes a lot towards AOSP, something that should help speed up Android P updates even further.

The update to Android P will be led by this year’s Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compactfollowed closely by their counterparts from 2017, but we don’t expect Sony to upgrade the 2016 Xperia X series. On the brighter side, we expect the midrange Xperia XA2 and XA2 Ultra to receive P at some point in early 2019. Even better, other 2018 Sony phones may come with Android P out of the box.

Xiaomi

Xiaomi doesn’t have the best of reputations in the world of software updates, but the Chinese OEM is stepping up the game. Although we expect multiple devices to be upgraded to Android P, it’s obvious Xiaomi will only upgrade a handful of devices led by the 2017 Mi 6 and Mi MIX 2.

Android Oreo will be the last major OS upgrade the 2016 Mi 5, Mi Note 2 and OG Mi MIX devices will be receiving. Also, we don’t expect the popular Redmi Note 4 or even the newer Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro to be upgraded to P, but you can be sure they’ll receive Oreo updates.

ZTE

ZTE has a multitude of smartphones on the market, but only one has been confirmed to receive Android Oreo – the flagship Axon 7 from 2016. Despite having many phones, we don’t expect all of them to be upgraded to Android P. In fact, it’s possible that ZTE might only upgrade two of its current phones in the Nubia Z17 and Nubia Z17s, which came out in 2017.
