Google has confirmed that the Android Q update would be simply called Android 10. That is, the Android 10 update is not being named after any dessert started with the letter Q, a break from the naming scheme Google adopted for the Android OS updates thus far except for the few first ones in the Android OS’s history. As Xiaomi’s Manu Kumar Jain says, this marks an end of an era of the yummy names that included: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream, Jellybean, KitKat, Lollipop, Marshmallow, Nougat, Oreo and Pie!
That said, we’re pretty excited to see what Google is offering with the Android 10 update and which devices would be receiving the update soon after the release. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the potential release date of Android 10 and the eligible devices.

Android 10 is coming in as software version N970FXXU1BSL7 for Note 10 and N975FXXU1BSL7 for Note 10 Plus. The packages also deliver the December 2019 security patch alongside the latest version of Android.
Update [December 12, 2019]: Samsung has pulled a surprise out of its hat, releasing the stable version of Android for the Galaxy M20 and M30. None of the devices were part of the One UI 2 beta program, so, this update has left users quite astonished, more so because Samsung is yet to release Android 10 for the Galaxy Note 10 devices.
The updates, which carry software version M205FDDU3CSL4 for M20 and M305FDDU3CSL4 for M30, also bring the December 2019 security patch.
Update [December 12, 2019]: Motorola may have lost its grip in the upper end of the smartphone market, but it has continued to bolster its presence in the mid-range sector. The Motorola One Power isn’t the most alluring device by any means, but the commitment the company has shown to keep it up to date is truly commendable.
Almost a month after kicking off a closed Android 10 beta program for the device, the American tech giant has released the stable Android 10 build for the Motorola One Power. The company has confirmed that it is a staged rollout, so, your device might not get the update right away, but it’s guaranteed to taste Google’s latest OS by January 10th.
Update [December 11, 2019]: Almost a week after releasing Android 10 for the Nokia 9 PureView, the company has started rolling out the latest version of Android for the Nokia 7.1. As we know, the mid-range device is one of Nokia’s finer offerings, so, it’s not really surprising to see the company releasing the update so early. Dubbed as software version 4.08B, the update also carries the November 2019 security patch alongside all the Android 10 goodness.
Update [December 10, 2019]: Almost two weeks after Android 10 was released for the LTE S10 devices, Samsung has released Google’s latest OS for the 5G variant of the Galaxy S10. Dubbed as software version G977NKSU2BSL2, the update also brings the December 2019 security patch.
Update [December 05, 2019]: Hours after Sony’s grand release, Nokia, too, has started rolling out Android 10 to its 9 PureView. The Finnish smartphone manufacturers have re-established its foothold in the smartphone industry with the launch of multiple value-for-money devices over the last couple of years.

Coming to more premium devices, like the Nokia 9 PureView, the company has always maintained a commendable response rate. And this latest release only goes on to bolster Nokia’s reputation. As confirmed by Nokia’s Twitter handle, the update is now rolling out to the concerned device and packs a bunch of features. The company has also promised a chunky camera update in the future.
Update [December 05, 2019]: Living up to its promise of delivering Android 10 to eight Xperia devices, Sony has started rolling out Google’s latest mobile OS to the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 smartphones. The company, which has been a little out of sorts lately, but their unflinching commitment towards serving the customers is ought to win some brownie points.
The highly-anticipated OTA is rolling out as software version v55.1A.0.748 for the two devices, worldwide, and the process is not different from any other previously released updates. Alongside Android 10, the package is also bringing the November 2019 security patch.
Before updating, however, you should now that the update is not as stable as Sony would’ve liked. Many users have reported a complete collapse of call and mobile data services after the update. Also, once you migrate to Android 10, there’s no going back. So, it’s probably better to let Sony address the issues before hopping on board.
Update [December 02, 2019]: While many users have already published their take on Android 10, a few other companies are only starting to tease the upcoming version of Android. Chinese OEM, ZTE, isn’t a frontrunner by any means, but it’s great to see the company trying to keep its customers up to date.
As per ZTE’s post on Weibo (via XDA), the upcoming Android 10-based skin would be called MiFavor 10 and would bring all of Android 10’s standout features. Keeping in line with Android 10’s dark theme, MiFavor 10 has been molded in black and comes with a bunch of dark wallpapers. From the reworked notification delivery system and system navigation gestures to voice control and smart text select, MiFavor 10’s bringing plenty of goodies, which are bound to make you excited.
Although ZTE hasn’t shared the rollout timeline yet, it has confirmed that Android 10 is coming to Axon 10 Pro, Blade V10, and Axon 9 Pro.
Update [December 01, 2019]: LG has released the stable build of Android 10 for its G8 ThinQ. The OTA, which brings software version G820N20c brings the November 2019 security patch alongside the highly-anticipated Google’s latest Android OS.

The update, which carries software version BSKO —G970FXXU3BSKO for the S10e, G973FXXU3BSKO for the S10, and G975FXXU3BSKO for the S10+ — also brings the December 2019 security patch.

Galaxy S9 duo, on the other hand, isn’t due before April 2020.
As it was posted by Samsung Israel, it could be the company’s roadmap for Israel only. The South Korean OEM has been exceptionally prompt with beta updates for its current flagships, and we don’t see any reason why it would take a couple more months to flesh out the stable release. At least in the US, India, and the UK, the update could roll out in December itself. Check out the screenshot (via Sammobile) below to get the complete list of Android 10-supported Samsung devices.
Update [November 26, 2019]: Realme has made quite a name for itself in quite a short period of time, and its latest announcement is bound to earn a few more admirers.

As of now, ColorOS 7 beta will only be available to Realme X2 Pro, but more devices are expected to join the pack sooner than later.

Shared on their blog today, Sony reveals that while both the Xperia 1 and Xperia 5 will get Android 10 in December, the Xperia 10, 10 Plus, Xperia XZ2, XZ2 Compact, XZ2 Premium, and Xperia XZ3 will receive the update in early 2020. Of course, once among the first to release the latest Android version update, Sony looks to be following HTC’s path now and that is obviously not a good sign.
Update [November 05, 2019]: Motorola One Power is set to become one of the first Motorola devices to get Android 10. The company has started distributing Android 10 beta — build number QPT30.52-2 — to users enrolled with the Motorola Feedback Network and should make the software public sooner than later.

Update [October 30, 2019]: As per Realme, Realme X2 and X2 Pro will get Android 10 ahead of every other device, getting the update in November 2019. Realme 3 Pro, Realme X, Realme 5 Pro, and Realme XT will get Android 10 in Q1 2020. Realme 3 and Realme 5 will get the same in Q2 2020, while Realme 3i and Realme 2 Pro would be the last to get the update — Q3 2020.
Update [October 25, 2019]: Samsung has released the Android 10 update for Note 10 and Note 10+ users in Europe. Coming in as One UI 2 beta update, version ZSJF, it’s expected to be available in the US soon, but it would be limited to the unlocked variants only. So, if you have a Note 10/10+ at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon, you won’t get the One UI 2 beta update (officially). Samsung also released the beta 2 update for the Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10+, which also arrives as ZSJF.
Update [October 09, 2019]: Nokia 8.1 is now receiving the stable Android 10 update, becoming the first Nokia device to run the latest OS and leaves the likes of S10 and Note 10 in the dust.

Update [September 03, 2019]: Google has released the Android 10 update today. The stable Android 10 OTA update is already rolling out for the Pixel devices, for which it’s also available as factory images (firmware). In less surprising news, but impressive nonetheless, Essential has also released stable Android 10 update for its Essential phone, although a bit limited to few open markets only.
In very surprising and equally pleasing news though, two custom skin-toting devices are also getting the Android 10 update today. We emphasize on custom skin because customizing the Android OS update Google releases with the custom skin of its own is a big task for an OEM. Thankfully, OnePlus has done this already with OxygenOS 10, as they are able to roll out Android 10 update for two of their devices, OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro, as Open Beta 1 update. Yes, that’s a beta version of OxygenOS 10 update that is based on the stable Android 10 OS build from Google. Well done, OnePlus!
