Last week, Google announced that it’s going to drop the naming scheme for Android release as it has been doing from the past few years. Now, the Android version will come with a simple version number rather than dessert names. It started the same with the latest Android version to Android 10. And now it seems that Android 10 will be officially released for Google Pixel phones on September 3, 2019.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
In a blog post announcing the change, Google wrote:
This next release of Android will simply use the version number and be called Android 10. We think this change helps make release names simpler and more intuitive for our global community. And while there were many tempting “Q” desserts out there, we think that at version 10 and 2.5 billion active devices, it was time to make this change.
PhoneArena asked about the above release date, and two independent Google Support agents confirmed this by stating that the next major software update will be released to Pixel devices in the next eight days time frame.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”zxikm5d3e04a8f1451″]
According to PhoneArena’s published article, most certainly Pixel devices will get the update including Pixel 3/3XL, 3a/3a XL, and Pixel 2/2 XL. The original Pixel and Pixel XL will also get the Android 10 update despite being outside of their two-year support window.
This release date applies to Google’s Pixel phones, which are always the very first ones to get the most recent Android updates even if the info is correct. This information can be taken as a pinch of salt as Google itself hasn’t any official announcement about this yet.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
