Will my phone get Android 9 Pie in 2022?
The full roundup
Android Pie has been around a while by now. The fact is that not every phone will be updated to Android 10 — the latest version as of this writing — and Pie will be the final bit of software for them. The good news is that Android phones can be super-functional and secure while running Pie, so for the people waiting for this is pretty important.
While most devices that will be updated already have been, it's still important to keep track of how the rollout of Android Pie is progressing. Let's break it down by the major manufacturers of the phones we love.
All Pixel phones have been fully updated past Pie to Android 10. Even the original Pixel, which was a nice surprise.
And that's it. Prior to the Pixel, Google promised two years of full support and three years of security updates for phones they sell under their own brand. The Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X are just about three years old. Auf Wiedersehen, Adieu, Adios, Goodbye. They were great phones.

Sony is another company that's not quite as popular in the Android space as it once used to be, but also similar to HTC, Sony has delivered on its Pie update plans.

There are a few phones with promised Android Pie updates that still haven't received them. The BlackBerry KEY2, for instance, was slated to receive an update to Android 9 at some point in 2019 but has not received anything yet. Even here in 2020, we're still waiting.
Google has moved onto Android 10, and if your phone still hasn't received its Pie update by now, it probably never will. Maybe it's time to start looking for a new phone.

Jerry is an amateur woodworker and struggling shade tree mechanic. There's nothing he can't take apart, but many things he can't reassemble. You'll find him writing and speaking his loud opinion on Android Central and occasionally on Twitter.
If Nokia can deliver on quick updates and maintain stability and QC, they'll be the King of budget phones this time next year.
Some people just don't care.
Good thing is that it doesn't really matter. App developers can see where the users are, and can choose to target all the way back to Lollipop (quarter of all devices). Maybe "the next pokemon go" will require Marshmallow 🤔
Some phone manufacturers/carriers stop sending out ota updates before others.
Could have stopped updating Android at 6 as far as I'm concerned.
Many of the so called features do nothing for me. IP68 and better cameras have been far more important to me than gestures, emojis and splitting a 6" screen.
XZ Premium One more OS update after P update
XZ2 Compact And one little correction:
These may be the companies we're most familiar with in the US (not west) that sell Android phones
Love my Pixel 2XL!
If they don't they'll be damn screwed.
NO UPDATES EVER?
Oh yeah, I have a Pixel 2XL ahHHAHAHA
Just downloaded Pie on my S8+ from AT&T, runs great. 👍
Still stuck at 8.0.0 So disappointing.
