List of Android Smartphones getting Android 9.0 Pie Upgrade

Android Pie was one the most anticipated Android versions in the history. With phones not getting drastic changes in the hardware department of things, it was time for the software side to become a major part of the game. We saw Google adding portrait mode without using a telephoto lens, making us believe how essential role software like AI and Machine Learning can play.

With Android Pie, comes more of these little yet major changes which will probably make our experience better. Here’s some of the interesting Android Pie Features that you should try out. 😉

But well, no matter how much an OS develops, everything goes in vain if you can’t taste it yourself. Often we get this question in our mind, ‘Will my phone get the Android Pie Upgrade?’

To answer this, we made a comprehensive list of phones (and also included some of the upcoming ones) which will get the latest Android version. Check out the list below if your phone is getting it or not!

But what’s worth mentioning that the Mi devices run on MIUI which is pretty different in both UI and the way it behaves, from the traditional Stock Android. So, the devices get MIUI updates for a longer period than the Android Version Upgrades.

Last Words:

So that was the list of all the major phones getting Android Pie in the near future. We’ll update this post as soon as we get more information about new devices.

Did you find your device? That’s exciting. Let us know in the comments below.

Even if you don’t find your device listed over here, don’t get upset. As reported by BGR on 1st October 2018, less than 0.1% of Android Users are on Pie. So, you are not alone in the woods.

I strongly hope with the release of Project Treble, the devices get faster updates in the near future.
