Android Q Beta may launch today with Support for additional Smartphones”

What will come in Android Q is still a mystery, but an early dev build acquired by XDA Developers suggests a system-wide dark more, more refined permissions and Face ID-style logins could be coming with the next OS version. The search giant has just opened up the Android Q Beta bug tracker, and it appears that the beta will be launched on March 11.

This year, Google is planning have more smartphone manufacturers on-board for the beta update, XDA Developers reported quoting Android Developer Illiyan Malchev in the Android Developers Backstage podcast.

Malchev did not reveal the names of the companies that might be added or even how many of them would be added, but the number is expected to be higher than the seven companies from the Android Pie beta testing.

We have seen reports that even more phones will be receiving the Beta this year so it looks like their could be a lot of folks playing with the next version of Android int he next few days. So at Google I/O [2018], when we did the first beta, we had all these companies lined up and that was really that wonderful. A lower test score is indicative of the fact that the version of Android its running is unstable. "But the trend is positive and strong, and I am very happy about this". So, in order for the reports to be possible, the Android Q Beta should be available to testers, which is why we believe the first Android Q Beta build will be released on March 11.

Google released the final version of the Android 9 Pie past year and the first phones to get the software update were the Pixels, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, some Sony Xperia devices, among others.

Last year, the Android 9.0 beta was rolled out to a number of devices in addition to Google's Pixel smartphones, including handsets from OnePlus, Nokia, Xiaomi, and Sony.
