When will my Android phone get Android 10 update?

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.
