The Android Pie is now old, people are already waiting for the Android Q launch. Despite of it getting old, some manufacturers haven’t yet sent the Android Pie update, In this post, you’ll be finding out all the devices which are going to receive or have already received the update. If your device isn’t on this list, it probably isn’t going to get the update.
Not giving proper updates is one reason why a lot of people shift from Android to iOS but trust me, it’s not the fault of the OS. It’s the manufacturer which doesn’t release one. So if you’re looking for devices which gets regular OS updates, you should consider using smartphones from brands like Google, OnePlus, Samsung (High-end smartphones), Essential, and few others.
