Like last year, Google is working with smartphone makers to expand access to the latest Android beta. So, you won't need one of Google's Pixel devices to get a look at Android Q Beta 3. Google is working with 12 OEMs to support a whopping 21 phones on the Android Q Beta.

The total 21 23 of phones includes all the Pixel phones, which is up to 8 with the announcement of the 3a and 3a XL. So, that's 13 phones from the 12 non-Google OEMs. Those phones makers are as follows.

  • Asus
  • Huawei
  • OnePlus
  • Tecno
  • Xiaomi
  • Sony
  • Nokia
  • Oppo
  • LG
  • Essential
  • Vivio
  • Realme

We don't know the specific phone models yet, but all the phones should be available in the beta program soon, and the 3a and 3a XL are only available via the beta program for the time being. Just join up, and you'll get an OTA update to Android Q.

Here are all the phones from third-party OEMs that will be joining the Android Q beta. You might notice there are 15 of them. With the now eight Pixel phones, that's 23. Maybe Google was being unnecessarily coy before the 3a announcement by pretending there were only six Pixel phones.
