Android Q

Huawei confirms which phones are getting Android Q

Huawei has stated many of its newest devices will be able to receive the next version of the Android operating system, despite a US trade ban restricting access to products.

In a  new Questions and Answers page, Huawei dispelled some of the most common myths surrounding its immediate future. In addition to this announcement, it confirmed that US-based apps such as Facebook and Instagram will still be available, as well as there being no changes to the existing warranty agreements.

“All Huawei smartphones and tablets will continue to receive security patches and Android updates. Anyone who has already bought, or is about to buy a Huawei smartphone, can continue to access the world of apps as they have always done. All devices continue to be covered by our manufacturer’s warranty and will receive full service support.”

The following is the list of the  products Huawei have submitted to upgrade to Android Q.

  • P30 Pro
  • P30
  • Mate 20
  • Mate 20 Pro
  • Porsche Design Mate 20 RS
  • P30 lite
  • P smart 2019
  • P smart+ 2019
  • P smart Z
  • Mate 20 X
  • Mate 20 X (5G)
  • P20 Pro
  • P20
  • Mate 10 Pro
  • Porsche Design Mate 10
  • Mate 10

As for upcoming phones, it’s unlikely that these will receive access to full-fat Android. The reason existing smartphones can still get the full software experience is that they have already been certified by Google; this would not be possible for devices released under the ban, so they may instead ship with an alternative own-brand operating system currently known as HongMeng. The first device this could apply to is the flagship Mate 30 Pro.
