When will my phone get the Android 13 update

With one of the earliest version bumps in recent memory, will Android 13 hasten to get to your device?

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

ANDROID POLICE VIDEO OF THE DAY

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

In this initial draft of the list, we focus on brands and devices generally 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.

ROGPhone

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

ZenFone

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

Google

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

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

Motorola

Once a Google property, the Lenovo-owned manufacturer has failed from grace in the software department. It’ll generally stick with two OS updates and two years of security patches for flagships and possibly one OS bump for other devices.

motorola one

nokia

This is another fallen star in terms of Android updates. In late memory, it’s had to delay Android 10 and 11 rollouts for certain devices. For Android 12, only one device on record was promised an OTA. We don’t have expectations here.

  • nokia c200
  • Nokia XR20

OnePlus (Global)

Oppo-owned OnePlus has been slowing down in terms of rushing Android pulses out to its phones. Part of it is a function of the recent codebase merger between OxygenOS and ColorOS. Supposedly, things should be more efficient once the developer teams get settled in. We’re crossing our fingers.

It may be time to update

As we update this list, we may modify our scope to cover OEMs in other areas and their device portfolios specific to those regions. For now, we’re simply waiting on Google to fire that starting gun by releasing the stable images for its supported Pixel devices. If you don’t see your device on our list, don’t worry; we should learn a lot more about manufacturer roadmaps once Android 13 is released. If you own an older phone or know that you’re not getting an Android 13 update, you may be time to upgrade to one of the best Android phones.
