The Gionee Pioneer P3S mobile phone is now fresh with
Android Q, the next in line version of Android will be released in the second half of the year, with the latest stable version – Android 9 Pie – having reached Pixel devices in August last year.
The first Android P developer preview was released in March, with the second Android P developer preview, known as Android P Beta, released at Google I/O in May last year and featuring several OEMs in the beta programme.
Google is expected to follow a similar timeline for Android Q, but it’s still too early to say. Google is expected to release the first Android Q developer preview this month, and showcase the Android Q Beta (developer preview 2) at Google I/O 2019 in May this year.
Now, a Google executive has revealed that more brands and smartphones will be on board with the Android Q beta programme, making it available on many more devices.
Separately, the Google bug tracker for Android Q Beta has been opened up, and thanks to a date filter on it, it appears the release of the first developer preview will be today.
