The next version of Android — Android 9.0 Pie — is finally here. We’ve rounded up everything that’s new in a handy guide, but when will your phone receive this update, if at all? More phones than ever could access the Android P beta, which leads us to believe that there will be a significant number of phones with the final version later this year — at least, more than usual.

Even Google said, “Many manufacturers are planning to launch or upgrade devices by the end of this year.” Well, we reached out to almost all of them, and here’s what they had to say. We’ll be updating this story as we continue to hear back.

Alcatel

Alcatel told Digital Trends it had nothing to share regarding Android 9.0 Pie at the moment. We don’t expect all of its phones to get Android 9.0 Pie — after all, some of them still ship with Android Nougat. Not only that, but Alcatel’s track record with Android updates is pretty bad, so it’s hard to say whether or not any of its phones would get Android 9.0 Pie.

Asus

Asus told Digital Trends it does not yet have a release schedule for Android 9.0 Pie, but it should have one ready within a few months. Android 9.0 Pie is slated to launch around the end of August.

Asus phones we expect to get Android 9.0 Pie:

  • Asus Zenfone 5Z

The Essential Phone is one of the phones that can access the current Android 9.0 Pie open beta, meaning that it should also be one of the first to get the consumer version of Android 9.0 Pie once it’s released to the public.

HMD is also on the list of beta partners for Android 9.0 Pie, and it’s available specifically for the Nokia 7 Plus. Since all HMD phones run Android One, which is a stock version of Android, we expect most if not all of the company’s 2018 and 2017 lineup to receive the Android 9.0 Pie update quickly.

The Android 9.0 Pie beta is available for the newly announced OnePlus 6. We expect the OnePlus 6 to be among the first phones to get the consumer release of Android 9.0 Pie once it’s launched. In July, OnePlus also announced its 3 and 3T handsets would also receive an Android 9.0 Pie update. OnePlus plans to update its handsets to Android 9.0 Pie in reverse-sequential order: The OnePlus 6 will be the first to be updated, while the OnePlus 3 will be last.

Samsung told Digital Trends it had nothing to share at this time. Of course, we expect most Samsung flagships from the past few years to get the update — including the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9. The problem with Samsung is that its user interface is heavily customized and the company often takes its time with updates.

Samsung phones we expect to get Android 9.0 Pie:

  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S8 Active
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus

ZTE has yet to respond to our email. It’s unclear what the future of the company will be considering ZTE’s U.S. issues, so we doubt you’ll see Android 9.0 Pie on recently launched ZTE phones any time soon.
