The Android Q beta program is now available for 21 devices from 12 OEMs [Update]

Last year, Google opened up beta testing for Android P to third-party OEMs for the first time, bringing it to seven additional OEMs and a total of 11 devices. This year, the company is going further, and the latest Android Q beta now includes a total of 12 brands, in addition to Google's own, making for a total of 21 devices with the beta.

This year, many of last year's participating brands are making a return, including Nokia, OPPO, OnePlus, and Xiaomi, but many more are joining in. Huawei, LG, and ASUS are a few of the companies hopping into the beta program for Android Q. Here are the phones that can get the latest Android Q beta, which surprisingly still include the 2017 Essential Phone that shipped with Android Nougat:

Asus Zenfone 5Z realme 3 Pro Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G
Essential Phone Sony Xperia XZ3 Pixel 3


TECNO SPARK 3 Pro Pixel 3 XL
Huawei Mate 20 Pro Vivo X27 Pixel 2
Nokia 8.1 Vivo NEX S Pixel 2 XL
OnePlus 6T Vivo NEX A Pixel
OPPO Reno Xiaomi Mi 9 Pixel XL

Google also introduced many new features for Android Q at today's presentation. These include the long-awaited dark mode, support for foldable devices, and more. What we still don't know, as usual, is what this version of Android will end up being called.

Android Q should be available for the general public later this year, towards the end of the summer.

Update: The post has been updated to include the full list of phones that are compatible with the Android Q beta.
