Google officially introduced the upcoming Android 10 Q at the Google I/O Conference 2019 a week ago. As a matter of fact, Google is in the stage of rolling out beta versions of Android Q and recently, it posted a list of 21 smartphones from 13 brands that have started receiving the latest Android Q Beta 3 update. Surprisingly enough, the speculated Xiaomi Redmi Snapdragon 855 flagship smartphone which is a mystery till now, has successfully made it to the list of devices that will support Android Q Beta updates.
The official list includes all Pixel devices, OnePlus 6/6T, Essential Phone, Asus Zenfone 5z, Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Oppo Reno, Nokia 8.1, Sony Xperia XZ3, Tecno Spark 3 Pro, Vivo NEX A, Vivo NEX S, Realme 3 Pro, LG G8 ThinQ, Xiaomi Mi 9, and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G. The upcoming Redmi flagship phone from Xiaomi will join the wagon with the likes of both Mi 9 and Mi Mix 3 5G by rolling on a custom EMUI OS based on Android Q 10 beta.
If you are eager to know about Redmi flagship specs, we are still in a shrouded mystery as there are only pieces of rumors that we have seen that we have stitched to produce a clear ‘speculated’ picture of what the device will offer. It might offer 6.39-inch FHD+ display with 12GB RAM, Snapdragon 855, and a 48MP primary sensor to name a few.
The Android Q beta 3 update for Xiaomi has a few known issues which mean the upcoming Redmi phone will too have these issues which are actually the point of having a beta program before launching stable versions of the same. Android Q 10 will surely bring a number of features including a much sophisticated permission-based system, dark mode, and tonnes of other features to clamp on.
For those who want to install the Android Q Beta 3, if you are a Pixel user, it is a piece of cake as you literally just have to sign up your device on Google Android Q beta page and you’ll receive an OTA update right away. For other OEMs subjected to supported smartphones, they can download the beta update file from this page manually and install it on your device but beware, there might be certain issues that you will have to deal with at this beta stage.
Huawei recently made it official that it will be among the first OEMs to push out stable Android Q update for its support Huawei and Honor flagship smartphones just after Google pushes the same for its Pixel series. Here’s more about it that you must read.
