In this post, we have listed out the List of OnePlus devices getting Android P which gives you an insight whether you should expect the Android P update for your device. If you have been using Android Nougat and still waiting for Android Oreo update, the latest update might not hit very soon to your device but we should keep the hope alive – keep your finger crossed :).
We all know how a major Android update hits to the device, some OEMs are quick enough to release it quickly after the announcement some takes time to get it done because of the customization they do on top of it like custom UI and some hardware-enhanced features and according to me it makes sense to take a bit of extra time to release the stable update to the users.

List of OnePlus devices getting Android P
Coming to an obvious question, “Will my smartphone get the new update?”. Unfortunately, if your OnePlus or any other smartphone was released in early 2017 or earlier, it is highly unlikely that you’ll receive an update. We have explained the reason in the next section.
Top 8 Android P 9.0 Features
1. Notch support
Yes, Android P includes tools, which will allow developers to work around them. It put the clock on the left side in order to make things symmetrical around the notch. It is good for developers, as it will allow them to create an application by keeping it in the mind and avoid anything important in place of the notch.
2. HDR and HEIF support
The Android P comes with a native support for the HDR VP9 profile, which means one can watch HDR movies by using any media player. Earlier, media players had to support HDR profiles to show HDR content correctly.
On top of that, it also supports the HEIF (High-Efficiency Image Format) image compression format. The picture using HEIF can store twice as much data as the same size file as JPEF image, which means the pictures will have much highest quality.
3. Indoor navigation
Android P also adds the support for the IEEE 802.11mc Wi-Fi protocol, which is also known as WiFi RTT. RTT is very precise that can locate your phone within 1 to 2 meters, which is much more precise than the GPS signal.
4. Notification improvements
Android P brings some improvements in the notifications. It will offer more informative notifications. One can see the preview of the attached image. You can also see last few messages in a conversation. On top of that, you can also use Google Assistant smart replies from the notification shade.
5. A rotation button
Android P allows you to rotate the display pretty easily. It is absolutely amazing. You can also lock the rotation settings so that it stays the way you want to. It also comes with a new button in the system bar, which will change things in just one tap.
6. Changes to Google’s Launcher
Google has also brought some changes to Google’s interface on the Pixel flagship. On pixel phones, you’ll see some changes, as the new volume slider widget on the side instead of the top when you press the volume button. It also brings more colourful settings menu along with a revised layout for Quick Settings.
7. Easier Screenshot Tools
Android P makes taking a screenshot much easier. While Android doesn’t have screenshot tools right now, it won’t be the same for much longer. Android P allows you to edit a screenshot directly from the notification. You can select a new Markup tool, which will allow you to crop, scribble or write on the screenshot.
8. Lockdown Mode
Security is one of the essential features, this is why Google is doing everything it can to improve the security of Android devices. Android P comes with a new feature that allows you to lock down your device by just a push of a button. When enabled, it also allows you to disable the fingerprint sensor or trusted voice unlock.
