You can now download Android 10 factory and OTA images for Pixel devices
The Android 10 launch is shaping up to be a big one. For Android Q, Google has decided to ditch dessert-based naming and is opting for a pretty straightforward number based nomenclature.
Google is supporting every Pixel device, right from the original Google Pixel, Google Pixel XL, Google Pixel 2, or Google Pixel 2 XL, all the way through to the latest Google Pixel 3, 3XL and even the Pixel 3a XL.
How to get Android 10 factory images
Make sure that you have backed up all your important data if you plan to do a fresh factory-install of Android 10 on your Pixel smartphone. The OTA image, on the other hand, will update your current install to the latest Android 10 build.
You could, of course, wait for the OTA updates to show up on your phone. Pixel phones usually receive the latest update Android build within hours of the final launch and the Android 10 release schedule should be no different.
