Android 9 Pie Update: List of SmartPhones Which Will Get Android P Update

Android 9 Pie is now live and users are eagerly waiting for its update on their smartphones. Everyone wants to try out the new features of Android P with a new look and feel along with gesture navigation.  But considering the record, people have no choice other than to be confused about whether their phone will get Android Pie update?

The previous year’s Android Oreo update took a very long time to reach consumers and it’s still making a way to remaining phones. No doubt, Google is improving this scenario with Android One, Android Beta, Project Treble, etc, but still many things are yet to be improved. At the end of the day, it’s the device manufacturer who decides when the update will be rolled out.

Sometimes, it even happens that while our device is ready to receive an update, Google has already released the beta update of the next Android version. So, let’s proceed to the list of Android smartphones which will receive Android 9 Pie update. We will keep updating this article as soon as we see any new device’s announcement.

The search giant always keeps them at the topmost priority. Also, the update will not reach Nexus members (Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P) due to lost update support as per the Google’s security policies.
