It’s only January, but we already know when Android Q will be available. It’s going to be available for Pixel 3 and for some other devices at the beginning. It is reported that the next important update of Android will be sent with support for built-in dark mode.
Developers will be able to play with Android Q before the beginning of May when I / O 2019 takes place. I / O is the place where Google reveals all the new software tricks it has been developing for its products, including the next important update for Android. It is likely that the first public beta version of Android Q extends during I / O to Pixel 3 and other compatible devices.
Google announced on Friday that its annual developer conference will take place May 7-9 at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. The main note, of course, is expected for the first day of the event, and the first public beta of Android Q should fall shortly after that.
Last year, the first beta version of Android P was released after the main event on I / O, where Google surprised the audience by announcing that not only Pixel 2 and Pixel devices could run it but a lot of other Android phones including Several models, such as the Sony Xperia XZ2, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, the Oppo R15 Pro and the OnePlus 6 would also be compatible with the beta version. At that time, the OnePlus 6 was not even available to users.
The latest release of Android Q will not fall until the summer, considering what Google did in previous years. However, August is our best estimate for the launch. Some people also expect Google to launch the Pixel 3 Lite in I / O 2019. This phone appeared in several reports this year, including a detailed handy video showing a prototype of the unpublished device.
