The next version of Android — Android P — is finally on its way. At Google I/O 2018, the company launched the Android P open beta, which has a number of new features you can check out in our handy guide.

There are more phones than ever that can access the Android P beta, which leads us to believe that there will be a significant number of phones with the final version later this year — at least, more than usual. But when is your phone getting the new version of the mobile operating system? It’s still early days, but manufacturers are likely evaluating which phones should get the update. We reached out to almost all of them, and here’s what they had to say.

Alcatel

Alcatel told Digital Trends it had nothing to share regarding Android P at the moment. We don’t expect all of its phones to get Android P — after all, some of them still ship with Android Nougat. Not only that, but Alcatel’s track record with Android updates is pretty bad, so it’s hard to say whether or not any of its phones would get Android P.

Asus

Asus told Digital Trends it does not yet have a release schedule for Android P, but it should have one ready within a few months. Android P is slated to launch around the end of August.

  • Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1
  • Asus Zenfone 4

BlackBerry

Essential

The Essential Phone is one of the phones that can access the current Android P open beta, meaning that it should also be one of the first to get the consumer version of Android P once it’s released to the public.

Google

Unfortunately, no Nexus phones will get the update to Android P.

HMD Global (Nokia)

HMD is also on the list of beta partners for Android P, and it’s available specifically for the Nokia 7 Plus. Since all HMD phones run Android One, which is a stock version of Android, we expect most if not all of the company’s 2018 and 2017 lineup to receive the Android P update.

Samsung told Digital Trends it had nothing to share at this time. Of course, we expect most Samsung flagships from the past few years to get the update — including the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9. The problem with Samsung is that its user interface is heavily customized and the company often takes its time with updates.

ZTE has yet to respond to our email. It’s unclear what the future of the company will be considering how ZTE can’t use Android anymore, so we doubt you’ll see Android P on recently launched ZTE phones anytime soon.
