Android P v 9.0 – List of Smartphones to Get update first

Android loves alphabets and I wonder what happens it runs out of all 26 alphabets? Will it take small alphabets? Whatever! We don’t have to worry about it this soon because we still got 10 more years to see that.

Android comes up with a new version every year naming it with a new alphabet-family. Following up the tradition Google has introduced the developer version of next version of the most used mobile phone operating system, Android P.

To the fact that Google have not yet named this pre-born Android baby, experts started to give it a name ‘Peppermint’ by the way the logo looks. ‘Peppermint’ or ‘Peekaboo’, it won’t change the compatibility of the devices that support it.

Yes, Android P is not for all devices. Old devices that get customized android skins to provide their signature design will hardly receive this update.

Wait! Don’t leave. I have a good news for you. If you use any one of the following devices, you will get Android P update for sure.

Most of the smartphone manufacturers will make sure that you get the latest software by looking at the competition in the market today. If your phone is not getting OTA update, there might be only two reasons.

  1. Your phone might have been rooted and voided warranty or
  2. You might have flashed custom ROM on your device

Do not root your phone if you are expecting an OTA software update and in the same way, do not expect to get updates for custom ROMs.

Hope the list is useful. Which phone are you using? Comment down your answer.
