Android Pie is here and while most people haven’t even received
Android Oreo, it’s worth looking ahead to what’s coming. This is the ninth full version of the popular OS and with it comes a myriad of new features as well as improvements to those that made their debut with Oreo.
Despite all the goodies that Android Pie promises, the most important question that many are asking is
when. Right now, everyone wants to know when Android Pie will arrive on their phones, a question that isn’t so easy to answer. But of course, based on our own experience, we have some educated guesses of when to expect the OS on your phone.
In this post, we have put together an OEM-wise list of popular Android devices that we think will be upgraded to Android 9 Pie, but this is just us making educated guesses.
Note that if your device is missing on the list, it’s likely not to receive Android 9. But of course, this list is not final and as such, we’ll constantly update it with new info (devices) when we get it. Asus

Other Android OEMs
As you may have noticed, this list only accounts for popular Android smartphone vendors whose devices are also available in the U.S. However, the exclusion of others like Meizu, Micromax, YU, Xolo, LeEco, Lava, etc. is by design and not by mistake. This is because you’ll hardly get an update from these OEMs.
Also, if you can’t see your device anywhere, it’s likely because we think it won’t be upgraded to Android Pie. If, however, you do feel the need for further information on the same, drop us a comment in the section below and we’ll get back to you ASAP!
