Will I receive the Android Pie update?

Talking about the smartphones that will receive the update, your smartphone must have released in late 2016 or in 2017 and 2018 based on the smartphone brand and other factors. It must meet the minimum hardware requirement in order to be eligible to receive the update. It must have Android device drivers installed to support Android Pie aka the new update. There are certainly other factors involved in the eligibility too. Check out our compilation of a list of Android 9.0 Pie Supported Ulefone Devices here.

Why my smartphone is not eligible?

Unfortunately, the global penetration of newer Android versions has seen a steep decline since the minimum hardware requirement increases with every iteration along with driver requirement and based on other components. In fact, many smartphones which are eligible for Android Oreo (8th version) hasn’t received the update even after it has been a year since it was launched. Older Android smartphones can be updated by its manufacturers but it doesn’t have any incentive for the manufacturing firm. Instead, phone manufacturers release newer smartphones every year to allow users to switch to the newer models thereby declining the need to invest time and money in updating older phones. So, if your smartphone is older than 2 years, your smartphone manufacturer has already stopped supporting the device.

Even if your phone is eligible and enlisted, there are many factors that can influence the incidence of the update via OTA. First of all, the smartphone manufacturer tweaks into the settings before sending it to the devices. Then, if your smartphone is locked by any carrier, they will perform further tweaking in order to fit their needs only after which, the update is sent via OTA which could take good months to actually roll out even after the update was originally rolled out months ago.

What should I do if my phone isn’t eligible to get the upgrade?

Looking for something like Android Pie or in fact, better than it? Get yourself a custom ROM that will provide adequate support for your smartphone even after your smartphone manufacturer has stopped supporting any updates on it. Custom ROMs maximizes the functionality and features in your smartphone which would or wouldn’t have been possible with Android versions.

Custom ROMs like LineageOS 16 which is under development and will be officially rolled out in December 2018 is being developed based on Android Pie. It means even if your phone is ineligible to receive the official update, you can still use it via custom ROMs. There are a bunch of other ROMs as well such as AOSP, Resurrection Box, Paranoid Android, etc that you can try as well.
