It’s a universally true fact that Google pushes its next major software version to its Pixel smartphones first. In fact, the case has somewhat changed here, we now even see the new devices coming pre-installed with the major upgrade. Take for instance, the Pixel 3 and the Pixel 3 XL which got launched with Android Pie onboard and now an Android Q version of the Pixel 3 XL has been spotted on Geekbench, hinting at the fact that the devices will receive it in the first wave, which is by the way, not an astonishing thing to note.
A Geekbench listing is showing a version of the Google Pixel 3 XL running the Android Q. It’s safe to assume that the Android Q is going to be the next major Android version according to the company’s naming sequence for its software.
This means the device is under testing right now and may get released for the Pixel 3 series after the announcement of this software in the coming year. For now, there are no details of the next major software upgrade but it is expected to be Project Treble compliant.
Well, the next year is on the verge of its opening and some important announcements will be made in the first few months. So stay tuned.
