Android 9.0 Pie coming soon on selected Sony and HTC devices this year
Most of you should already know about Android 9.0 Pie and it will be available on quite a number of Android phones this year. Aside from the Google Pixel series, it seems that both Sony Mobile and HTC have officially announced a list of phones that are getting the update via over-the-air (OTA).
Starting with Sony, obviously the latest Xperia XZ2, Xperia XZ2 Compact and Xperia XZ2 Premium are getting the piece of the pie, so are the predecessors Xperia XZ1, Xperia XZ1 Compact and Xperia Premium as early as September. It's said the mid-range Sony devices will also have the update but so far, there is no information on that.
Meanwhile, HTC's U12+, U11+, U11 and U11 Life (Android One) are selected to receive the update but the company didn't disclose the official date. Oddly enough, the Desire 12, U Ultra and U Play aren't on the list and the phones aren't too old for an update. On the other hand, the vivo X21, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, all new 2018 Nokia phones, OnePlus and OPPO are expected to get Android 9.0 Pie as well.
To refresh your memory, Android 9.0 Pie is bringing some new user interface updates such as the new navigation system, screen panel brightness, an adaptive battery and others. Stay tuned for more Android news at TechNave.com.
