Google has been working hard on the new Android operating system and the Android P beta has already been available for a while on various smartphones. Not too long, it will finally be ready and we will get the final version of the Android update. As usual, unfortunately, not all devices will receive the update, but fortunately, a lot of them will. These are the smartphones of which so far they are known to receive the Android P update. More devices may be added to the list soon.
Of course, Google’s own Pixel devices will be among the very first smartphones that get Android P. It is expected that the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL all get the update. Naturally, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will also be equipped with the new operating system when they are finally launched. We will have to wait for that, although a 3D render has already been published online. Unfortunately, it seems that Google Nexus smartphones will fish next to the net and the Pixel C does not seem to get the update.
In early May, Google revealed that the Android P beta was available to test on different devices. Surprisingly, there were also devices in between that do not normally run stock Android. Of course, these devices will eventually also get the real version of the operating system. We have the Pixel and Pixel 2 devices on the Essential Phone, Nokia 7 plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21UD, Vivo X21, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S and OnePlus 6.
In addition to the Sony Xperia XZ2, the Xperia XA2, XA2 Ultra, XZ Premium, XZ1, XZ1 Compact, XZ2 Compact and XZ2 Premium would also receive the Android P update from Sony.

In the Chinese camp, the OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 5 and Xiaomi Mi A1 can also expect Android P.
