Android Q Beta Could be Released Later Today for Pixel Devices

Android Q Beta Will Be Available For More Phones Than Android Pie Beta

In 2018, it was 7 OEM's, excluding Google, have got the access to test Android Pie on the devices and those were, Essential Phone, OnePlus 6, Nokia 7 Plus, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Vivo X21, Oppo R15 Pro and Sony's Xperia XZ2. At the very least, it seems like the developer preview for Android Q will be starting soon, but we'll have to wait on Google for official word on when it will kick off. Every year, around this time Google usually takes the wraps off its latest Android Beta version.

What will come in Android Q is still a mystery, but an early dev build acquired by XDA Developers suggests a system-wide dark more, more refined permissions and Face ID-style logins could be coming with the next OS version.

The beta version of Android Q will be available on more devices than even Android Pie, according to Iliyan Malchev, an Android developer working for Google.

Android Q will nearly certainly be unveiled at the annual Google I/O conference in late Spring/early Summer.

First found by xda-developer's Mishaal Rahman, the bug tracker for Android Q is already online. Like all previous releases of Android, Q will make its way to the Pixels before rolling out to other OEMs. Over the weekend, we heard that the beta tests for Android Q will include more devices than the ones that were run for Android Pie, but it's likely that we'll be waiting until Google IO in May to learn which OEMs made the cut. Generally, we have seen Google launching its new Android Versions around August and we can expect the same this year also.

"At Google I/O [2018], when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that wonderful", Malchev said. As you might notice, big names like Samsung, LG, and Huawei are missing from the list, but this year the number of Android smartphones that will be compatible with the Android Q Beta will be bigger.
