Android 10 Drops Next Week

Thanks to a Phonearena, we now know that Android 10 will land first on Google Pixel devices on September 3 in the U.S. Or for us Aussies, September 4.

Gotta respect that hustle.

Android 10 will reportedly come to every Pixel that has been released to date, from the 3XL down to the original Pixel.

Kudos to Google for continuing to support somewhat older devices for those of us who can’t afford to buy a new one.

But for anyone not using a Pixel — don’t get too excited just yet.

If you’re a follower of Android updates you’ll know that the roll out to non-Pixel devices can take months.

There is currently no word on when the likes of Samsung, LG and Oppo will be blessed by the update. Huawei is another matter entirely, though current users should be fine.

So while this is all very exciting, definitely don’t hold your breath if you’re not a Pixel stan.

In addition to a system-wide dark mode, Android 10 will include increased 5G support, smart replies and a slew of privacy and security updates.
