Android Q, the next version of the green robot, should soon be revealed to the world with the launch of the Preview version by Google for its Pixels, and a few months later as usual, the beta test program will be launched also to other smartphones : this year, the number should be bigger than last year.
With Android 9 Pie Google had opened the beta program to as many as 7 different manufacturers (Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21 and Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S), but for this new version, Google would be planning to expand access to the beta, collaborating with even more producers.
This was revealed by an Android Developer at Google Mr. Illiyan Malchev, who has issued a fairly clear statement:
“Last year, We had released the new version of Android some time in August. So at Google I/O , when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that amazing. The number is bigger for the upcoming Android release, which I am very happy about. I cannot share the exact numbers yet. But the trend is positive and strong, and I am very happy about this”.
To put it simply, Malchev said that, after the 7 producers of last year, with Android Q, access to the beta will be guaranteed to a greater number of producers. We do not know yet when the program will start, which will be the producers, but this new can certainly please us hoping that it can be a new piece to speed up the arrival of the new versions of Android on smartphones not “made by Google”.
