Google announced the rebrand of Android Q to Android 10 last week, albeit without a new sweet name. While reports came of it arriving in September fr private conversations with sales reps, a company has now posted its official update schedule for Android devices.
Canadian carrier Rogers has confirmed the release date of Android 10, pegging it as arriving on September 3 for all current Pixels including the 3-year-old Pixel and Pixel XL. As all Pixel devices receive updates at the same time globally due to Google’s efforts, this can be twigged as the global release date as well.
“As the mobile ecosystem evolves, Android is focused on helping users take advantage of the latest innovations, while making sure users’ security and privacy are always a top priority,” Google said, “Building on top of efforts like Google Play Protect and runtime permissions, Android Q brings a number of additional privacy and security features for users, as well as enhancements for foldables, new APIs for connectivity, new media codecs and camera capabilities, NNAPI extensions, Vulkan 1.1 support, faster app startup, and more.”
Android 10 adds a lot of privacy features to the operating system, a new dark theme, and support for foldables among other new features. It is also the first operating system Google is simply designating with a number and not a dessert name.
