Android 14 update tracker: When will your phone get it?
In February 2023, Google officially announced the first developer preview of Android 14 (now, bizarrely, on QPR1 beta but not public just yet). This will be the 2023 version of the operating system. There will still be a few more weeks before the stable version arrives. But the launch of this operating system version probably has you asking a few questions. Which phones will get Android 14? When can I update to Android 14? We’ve got some answers for you below!
This article will see continuous updates as the release cycle of the 2023 Android version continues. As such, we highly recommend bookmarking this article and coming back occasionally to check if there have been any updates for your phone!
What’s new in Android 14?
In 2021, Android 12 was a wild reinvention of what the operating system looks like and can do. In 2022, Android 13 was a subtle iteration of that. In 2023, Android 14 looks to be another iterative year, as there don’t appear to be any huge changes.
There are certainly new things to talk about, though! We know you’ll have more control over font size (you can go up 200% now!), and battery life should be better. There will be more privacy and security features, including prohibiting installing very old apps. However, most of the significant changes to Android 14 are on the developer side, so they’re things the general user won’t see.
There could be a lot more in the pipeline for Android 14 that we don’t know about. You can stay up-to-date on the latest confirmed and rumored features using our Android 14 feature hub.
ASUS promises two Android upgrades for its phones. As such, we know the following phones will get Android 14:
- ASUS Zenfone 10
- ASUS ROG Phone 7 and its variants
- ASUS Zenfone 9
- ASUS ROG Phone 6 and its variants
Phones launched before and including the Zenfone 8 series have already received Android 13, which is the final version promised by ASUS. They will not get Android 14. Any 2023 phones from ASUS will get Android 14, including the Zenfone 10 and the ROG Phone 7.
As for when you can expect your ASUS phone to get the latest version of Android, the company is pretty slow with its rollouts. We would be surprised if any phones received A14 before the end of 2023.
Since Google owns Android, it’s no surprise that most of its lineup will get Android 14. Some phones have aged out, but the bulk of its lineup from 2020 and later will get the latest version of the operating system. Here’s the full list:
- Google Pixel Fold
- Google Pixel Tablet
- Google Pixel 7a
- Google Pixel 7 Pro
- Google Pixel 7
- Google Pixel 6a
- Google Pixel 6 Pro
- Google Pixel 6
- Google Pixel 5a
- Google Pixel 5
- Google Pixel 4a 5G
Unfortunately, if you have a Pixel phone launched before the Google Pixel 4a 5G — including the earlier, non-5G Google Pixel 4a — you will not get Android 14. Do note that the Google Pixel 8 series will launch on October 4, and those phones should be the first with Android 14 out-of-the-box.
Pixel phones are always the first to get a stable Android release. Judging from the official Android 14 schedule, we anticipate a stable rollout in or around August 2023.
Lenovo / Motorola
Lenovo makes smartphones (and owns Motorola), but the only device we have Android 14 confirmation on so far is the Lenovo Tab Extreme. The Wi-Fi edition of this tablet has access to an Android 14 beta program right now.
Elsewhere, we fully expect the Lenovo ThinkPhone by Motorola to get Android 14 eventually.
As for Motorola, its latest flagships should get an Android 14 beta soon, although we have no idea when. It wouldn’t surprise us to see it land on the Motorola Edge Plus (2023) first. It’s also possible that the Motorola Razr (2023) and Razr Plus (2023) could receive beta access. We’ll need to wait and see on that one, though. They will definitely see the stable release at some point!
Nothing only has two phones at the moment: the Nothing Phone 1 and Nothing Phone 2. The first phone launched with Android 12 and is currently on Android 13. Nothing promises three Android upgrades, which means the company will deliver Android 14 to the Phone 1 and Phone 2, likely before the end of 2023.
True to its word, the Nothing Phone 1 is one of the earliest phones to get access to the Android 14 beta. You can find instructions on gaining beta access on its website.
It is likely the Nothing Phone 2 will see a stable version of Android 14 before the Nothing Phone 1. However, the Nothing Phone 2 still doesn’t have an open beta program.
For the bulk of its flagship phones, OnePlus promises three Android upgrades. Its most recent release — the OnePlus 11 — will even get four Android upgrades. As such, there are quite a few devices we expect to get Android 14:
- OnePlus 11
- OnePlus 11R
- OnePlus 10T
- OnePlus Nord 2T
- OnePlus 10R
- OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite
- OnePlus 10 Pro
- OnePlus 9 Pro
- OnePlus 9
- OnePlus 9R
- OnePlus 8T
The OnePlus 11 already has access to the Android 14 beta. Unfortunately, not all OnePlus 11 phones qualify (there’s no support for carrier variants), and there are a lot of known issues. We recommend waiting before trying this out.
If you have a flagship OnePlus device — such as the 8T, 9/9 Pro, 10 Pro/10T, etc. — you will see Android 14 faster than other OnePlus devices. On top of that, the newer your phone is, the faster you’ll see the upgrade. As you go further down the list, you risk more and more of needing to wait until 2024 to get Android 14.
OPPO has the distinction of offering an Android 14 beta for a foldable phone — the only non-Google company on this list to do so. Interestingly, the Find N2 Flip is also the only phone for which OPPO currently offers beta access. Even the latest Find X6 Pro doesn’t have it yet.
Rest assured that the latest OPPO flagships will gain beta access eventually. As with OnePlus (which is a sister brand), expect the latest OPPO flagships to get Android 14 first, with older flagships to follow. Mid-range and budget phones may or may not receive Android 14 at all, let alone beta access.
You can get the Android 14 beta on the Realme GT 2 Pro right now. Unfortunately, this is the only phone with beta access at the moment. There are also some restrictions, such as only the Indian variant being eligible and that there might not be any updates to this beta. In other words, we recommend waiting before jumping in with this.
We can expect newer Realme flagships to receive Android 14 months after the stable version of the operating system lands.
Without a doubt, Samsung is the best company for Android upgrades. Most of its lineup promises four Android upgrades, and even its budget-tier phones get three upgrades. Because of how large Samsung’s portfolio is and the sheer number of phones that will get Android 14, the list below is not exhaustive. These are the major Samsung phones that will get Android 14:
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5
- Samsung Galaxy S23 series
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4
- Samsung Galaxy A73
- Samsung Galaxy A54
- Samsung Galaxy A53
- Samsung Galaxy A34
- Samsung Galaxy A33
- Samsung Galaxy S22 series
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
- Samsung Galaxy A72
- Samsung Galaxy A52
- Samsung Galaxy A32
- Samsung Galaxy S21 series
There are lots of other Samsung phones that will receive Android 14, but they are in smaller lines without global availability.
Samsung gets faster and faster with its Android upgrade rollouts. In 2022, it had all of its eligible flagships on Android 13 before the end of 2022. We expect 2023 to be no different. In other words, if you have a Galaxy S or Galaxy Z phone on the list above, you should have Android 14 before the end of the year. Some Galaxy A phones on that list might need to wait until 2024.
As of now, the Galaxy S23 series, Galaxy A54, and Galaxy A34 are the only phones with access to Android 14 beta.
Sony’s Android support is not great. It only promises two Android upgrades, even for its mega-expensive flagships. As such, the list of phones that will likely get Android 14 is quite short:
- Sony Xperia 5 V
- Sony Xperia 1 V
- Sony Xperia 5 IV
- Sony Xperia 1 IV
- Sony Xperia 10 IV
As for a timeline, the 2023 Xperia phones will be the first to get Android 14. We’d expect them to start getting betas towards the end of 2023 and then stable launches in early 2024. Sony could surprise us and get a stable launch out before the end of the year, but don’t bet on it.
TECNO is not a well-known brand in the US, but it is still offering Android 14 beta access. Only one phone family is eligible at the moment: the Camon 20 series. We expect TECNO flagships — including the TECNO Phantom V Fold — to get Android 14, too. However, we don’t know if any other phones will see beta access or skip right to the stable launch.
vivo / Iqoo
So far, there are only two phones under the vivo umbrella with beta access to Android 14. They are the vivo X90 Pro, shown above, and the Iqoo 11.
We would expect vivo to take the same approach to Android 14 rollouts as sister brands OPPO and OnePlus. In other words, expect the latest flagships to get the update first, followed by older flagships, and then, finally, applicable mid-rangers.
Xiaomi is offering Android 14 beta access on quite a few phones. They include the Xiaomi 13 Pro, Xiaomi 13, and the Xiaomi 12T.
You can expect other major phones in Xiaomi’s roster to get Android 14, although it’s not clear if there will be other phones seeing beta access soon.
