It is a well-known fact that Google is currently working on Android Q development which will be the next major Android version. It released Android Q third beta yesterday which is available for a total of 21 eligible smartphones. Huawei has only one phone mentioned in the list but it has now announced shared details regarding Android Q update plans.
Like it usually happens, Huawei will be updating its devices to the new Android version in multiple batches. It has released the list of devices that will be part of the first batch. These include Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, Mate 20 Porsche Edition, Huawei P30, Huawei P30 Pro, Honor View 20 aka V20, and Honor Magic 2.
All of these are Android flagships with high-end specifications which explains why they have been included in the first batch. It is worth noting that Huawei has only revealed the name of the phones. There are no words on the timeline yet which means it is difficult to say which particular phone will receive Android Q and when.
Android Q is shaping up to be a noteworthy upgrade with most of the focus on improving user experience, security and privacy, and update release situation. The team has finally added a native system-wide dark mode and has also improved on gestures that were introduced with Android Pie.
