When will my phone get the Android 13 update

Will Android 13 rush to your device with one of the earliest version bumps in recent memory?

Android 13 may not be as blockbuster of an update as Android 12 was. Still, it should bring a much-needed wave of stability and sophistication to last year’s newest elements, while also introducing hair-raising behind-the-scenes changes for app developers. Whether you’ve got your arms wide open or braced for impact, we’re working to get answers about when your phone or tablet will get Android 13.

ANDROIDPOLICE VIDEO OF THE DAY

As of August 1, we are still waiting for Google to distribute stable Android 13 images to its Pixel phones, as well as distribute generic images and update the Android Open Source Project repository. Other Android manufacturers will be responsible for adapting the new software to their devices, which will certainly take a few months. We will update this article with target dates as they are announced and links to relevant information.

In this first version of the list, we focus on brands and devices that are commonly available in North America.

Asus

This Taiwanese tech brand offers beta programs for eager testers to try out new Android versions, but it hasn’t been too quick to push them through to the rest of the user base.

ROG Phone

  • ROG Phone 3
  • ROG Phone 5
  • ROG Phone 6

ZenFone

  • ZenFone 7
  • ZenFone 7 Pro
  • ZenFone 8
  • ZenFone 8 Flip
  • ZenFone 9

google

Every update on this list depends on this company. That’s the gist of it. If you don’t want to wait, you can download the Android 13 beta now.

  • Pixel 4
  • Pixel 4 XL
  • Pixel 4a
  • Pixel 4a (5G)
  • Pixel 5
  • Pixel 5 XL
  • Pixel 5a
  • Pixel 6
  • Pixel 6 Pro
  • Pixel 6a

Motorola

Once a Google property, Lenovo’s manufacturer has fallen out of favor in the software department. It generally sticks to two OS updates and two years of security patches for flagships and possibly one OS bump for other devices.

Rand/Razr

  • Rand+ (2020)
  • Rand (2021)
  • Rand (2022)
  • Rand+ (2022)
  • Edge+ 5G UW (2022)
  • Razr 5G
  • Razr (2022)

Moto G

  • MotoG 5G (2022)
  • Moto G Stylus 5G (2022)

Motorola One

Nokia

This is another fallen star when it comes to Android updates. In late memory, it was supposed to delay the rollout of Android 10 and 11 for certain devices. For Android 12, only one registered device was promised an OTA. We have no expectations here.

  • Nokia C100
  • Nokia C200
  • Nokia XR20

OnePlus (worldwide)

Oppo-owned OnePlus is slowing down in terms of rushing Android pulses to its phones. Some of it is a function of the recent codebase merger between OxygenOS and ColorOS. Presumably things should be more efficient once the dev teams settle in. We cross our fingers.

Samsung

The world’s largest Android phone manufacturer has stepped up its software update commitments in recent years. More devices get more OS updates and more security updates for longer. The company plans four OS updates and five years of security patches for its 2022 releases.

Android 13 will be paired with One UI 5.0 on Galaxy devices. We expect the most recent releases to receive the update a few months after the stable release from Google.

It might be time to update

As we update this list, we may adjust our scope to cover OEMs in other regions and their device portfolios specific to those regions. For now, we’re just waiting for Google to fire that go-ahead by re-releasing the stable images for the supported Pixel devices. If you don’t see your device in our list, don’t worry; we should learn a lot more about manufacturer roadmaps once Android 13 is released. If you have an older phone or know you won’t get an Android 13 update, it might be time to upgrade to one of the best Android phones.
