When is Android 10 coming to my phone?

If you have an Android phone, you'll be familiar with the update process for Android versions: Google launches a beta, eventually pushing that to Pixel devices, before manufacturers roll-out to other devices about six months later.

The Android 10 beta was announced on 13 March 2019 and the final release began to roll out from 3 September to Pixel phones. There's a system-wide dark mode, new gesture navigation, boosted security and more. Check out what else is new here.

To find out when, specifically, you will get the update and be able to try all the new features included in the release, keep reading.

When will Android 10 be released? 
Google announced Android Q in March, changed it to Android 10 in August, and allowed beta testers to trial the software before the official launch on 3 September 2019 for all Google Pixel devices. Other Android devices will need to wait until later this year or next year to get the update.

Pro tip: If you want the Android 10 update straight away, opt into the beta, and then the final version will immediately arrive.

Android 10 for other Android devices
Asus hasn't always been in the best position with Android updates - it can be a little haphazard. However it did have a phone on the Android 10 beta, so we know there's an update incoming for at least one device. At launch, Asus promised the Zenfone 6 would get Android 10 and that seems to be happening.

BlackBerry has been slow to update phones, even if it does manage to stay on top of security updates. The BlackBerry Key2 was confirmed to be getting Android 10 on its update path, but no official timeframe has been announced yet.

The Essential Phone has already pushed out the Android 10 update to open market customers.

HTC has only just started delivering Android Pie, and with the company virtually giving up on phones, we don't want to get your hopes up about Android 10. 

Huawei is in an interesting position. Having become the darling of Android smartphones over the past couple of years, increasing tensions between the US and China has seen business get more difficult for Huawei.

Huawei has confirmed that the following devices are "submitted" for approval for Android 10. That's not a cast iron guarantee, more a statement of intent, but this situation remains fluid, so we'll update as we learn more. The update on all these devices is expected to be part of the EMUI 10 update. Huawei had originally said on Weibo that it would be pushing the update soon after the Pixel, with reports that the update started in Europe on 15 November.

Honor has come forward to reassure customers saying that it will continue to offer warranties and updates to its phones. It has gone as far as confirming that some will get Android 10.

LG isn't the biggest force in Android phones, but the flagship LG G8 was on the 10 beta, so is likely to see an update in a reasonable timeframe. LG has said that it wants to speed up updates and it is launching an Android 10 beta programme including a new LG OS. That announcement says that it will come to a number of models - although the timeframe for the final OTA update hasn't been confirmed.

There's the loose suggestion from LG that updates will be within the year, but it's not clear if that's within 2019, or within a full year.
