Android Q is the 10th version of Android, which is coming up with loads of surprises. Earlier this year, everyone was hyped up about the Android Q, Android update of 2019 and the main question which started arising was what kind of sweet name will be given to Android Q this year. Well, there is a lot more than you think. We have also got a clue about the date when the latest upgrade of Android will be coming out.
Cut to the Chase:
- Google hints a Pixel 4 launch with Android 10
- The name change is to help users get a hold of the OS better
- Pie will probably be the last Dessert named Android
First, let’s take a look at the previous versions of Android:
- Android 1.5 Cupcake
- Android 1.6 Donut
- Android 2.0-2.1 Éclair
- Android 2.2 Froyo
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- Android 3.0-3.2 Honeycomb
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- Android 4.1-4.3 Jelly Bean
- Android 4.4 KitKat
- Android 5.0-5.1 Lollipop
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- Android 7.0-7.1 Nougat
- Android 8.0-8.1 Oreo
- Android 9 Pie
The most possible names which every one of us were predicting consists of Quiche, Quesadilla, Quinoa and many more. But this time the company has decided to ditch the sweet dishes and go for a simple name, Android 10.
Sameer Samat, Vice President of Product Management, Android said “Our engineering team has always used internal code names for each version, based on tasty treats, or desserts, in alphabetical order. This naming tradition has become a fun part of the release each year externally, too. But we’ve heard feedback over the years that the names weren’t always understood by everyone in the global community.”
The Tech Gaint has not just made a difference in Nomenclature of Android versions, but this year they have also changed and upgraded their logo. They have gone with a different color combination. With the up-gradation of the logo, Sameer Samat said “We also changed the logo from green to black. It’s a small change, but we found the green was hard to read, especially for people with visual impairments. The logo is often paired with colors that can make it hard to see—so we came up with a new set of color combinations that improve contrast.”
We have also come across the date when Android Q will roll out in all the Pixel devices. One of the members and a reader of PhoneArena had a conversation with two of the Google Support agents and they have confirmed that the Android Q update will roll out on the 3rd of September.
The devices which will get the update are the Pixel devices, which consist of Pixel 3/3 XL, 3a/3a XL. Pixel 2/2XL and the first-pixel device, they all will get the update. As per our predictions, Pixel 4 will come with Android Q out of the box. Devices with Android One program can hope to receive the updates sooner this year. It is said that Xiaomi’s Mi A3 will also receive an Android Q update. Samsung flagship devices may receive it by the end of the year.
