When is Android 10 coming to my phone?

Android 10 was launched on September 3, 2019. But this being Android, unless you’re running a newish Google Pixel smartphone there is likely going to be a delay between launch and it getting to your device.

How long of a delay? It depends.

Could be soon. Could be next year. Could be never.

The good news is that if you own one of the following Google smartphones, the update has already began rolling out to you:

  • Pixel
  • Pixel XL
  • Pixel 2
  • Pixel 2 XL
  • Pixel 3
  • Pixel 3 XL
  • Pixel 3a
  • Pixel 3a XL

But what if you don’t own a Pixel? Then things get a bit vague. 

Here’s what we know at present (September 16, 2019):

  • Essential Phone: Already available to select open market customers.
  • OnePlus: The OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, and possibly OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T will likely see the update in September 2019
  • Samsung: The Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will likely see updates in early 2020.

The remainder of the supported handsets will see the update sometime during the second-quarter 2020.

  • HTC: The U12, U12 +, and U11 will likely see an update this year, but that’s probably all we can expect this year.
  • Asus: The ROG Phone and ROG 2 probably won’t start seeing updates until 2020.
  • Oppo: Probably won’t start seeing updates until 2020.
  • Vivo: Beyond the Vivo X27, which is in the beta program and might see an update before the year is out, it’s a mystery.
