Huawei confirms Android Q update for Mate 20, P30, and more

Android Q has been in beta since this past March, and at the Google I/O keynote on May 7, Beta 3 was launched along with support for a bunch of other non-Google smartphones. Now, Huawei's revealed details as to which of its devices will receive the final upgrade to Q when it's released.

Per a post on Chinese social network Weibo, Huawei confirmed that the following phones will get Android Q:

  • Huawei Mate 20
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
  • Huawei Mate 20 X
  • Huawei Mate 20 RS
  • Huawei P30
  • Huawei P30 Pro
  • Huawei View 20 / V20
  • Honor Magic 2

It's unclear when all of the above phones will receive their Q update, but even so, it's nice to have some level of reassurance.

With that said, if you just can't wait for Android Q any longer, Beta 3 can be downloaded and installed on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. It's likely to be filled with heaps of bugs, but that is an option available to you.
