Android Pie 9

Android 9.0 Pie is the next big operating system update to come from Google. It has several new features, including a new UI design, better battery management with Adaptive battery, gesture based navigation, and plenty more. The final stable version of Android 9.0 has already been released to Google Pixel devices and the Essential PH-1.

However, the most important question in most Android users’ mind is whether their devices will be getting the update. We all love software updates, as it brings more features and improvements to the device that everyone wants to know about. So far, several OEMs¬†¬†(Original Equipment Manufacturer) have announced the list of phones that will be getting the update, and we have listed them down.

Some of the OEMs are already testing the beta version of the software on their phones. OnePlus, for example, was the first to release the Android P developer preview for the OnePlus 6. The testing will take some time, because most OEMs have a custom UI and that requires a lot more time to finish.

Android Phones Confirmed to Receive Android 9.0 Pie Update

Smartphones from manufacturers such as Nokia will be getting the Android 9.0 Pie update sooner than the rest, because Nokia phones usually come with stock Android. Other OEMs that use stock Android or smartphones that are part of the Android One program will get the software first.

Companies such as Sony, LG, Samsung, and others have an UI on top of Android, which gives more features, but then it would take a little longer to develop the UI on top of the latest software.

Also, OEMs will only be releasing the software for the flagship models from the last two years. Most mid-range smartphones from LG, Sony, Samsung, Xiaomi, Honor, Huawei, and others, will not be getting the update.

Nevertheless, below is a list of smartphones that are going to get the Android 9.0 Pie update for sure;
