Do you have a Pixel 2 XL (shown), Pixel 2, Pixel XL, or original Pixel? If so, then you can go ahead and grab Android Pie’s full 9.0 version today. That’s also true if you have the Essential PH-1, the sleek startup phone that’s proven to be pretty niche in appeal.

Many other devices are in on the Android Pie beta, though, and will get full versions by the end of autumn: the OnePlus 6, Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, and Vivo X21. Assumedly, you can still jump into the beta on those devices, although it may not be fully polished… or fully-featured for that matter.

Otherwise, you’ll need to wait and see whether your Android phone’s manufacturer announces plans for a Pie upgrade. Recent flagships should see the update, hopefully, but that process can take ages at times.

We’re also curious to see how long it takes for upcoming phones to launch with Android 9 Pie. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL will undoubtedly have it from day one, but what about others? We’ve heard rumours that the Huawei Mate 20 and Nokia 9 flagships will both debut with Android Pie, and they might both launch at IFA 2018 at the end of this month.
