Google today revealed Android P stands for Android Pie, succeeding Android Oreo, and pushed the latest source code to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). The latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 9.0 Pie, is also starting to roll out today as an over-the-air update to Pixel phones.
If you don’t have a Pixel phone, you won’t be getting Android Pie for a while (if at all). During the beta testing phase, Android P was made available on the Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, OnePlus 6, and Essential PH‑1. Google has shared that these devices, as well as all qualifying Android One devices, will receive Android Pie “by the end of this fall.” Google added that it is working with “a number of other partners to launch or upgrade devices to Android 9 this year.” Android Pie will not be coming to Nexus devices.
Its great to be the first people to get a new OS and it can be a bad thing as well.
