We are not surprised, but it is good that this happens and we expect more brands to follow this example, as within hours of Android 10 becoming officially available for the Pixels, two smartphones They also received the new version of Android, the essential Phone, as it had previously been, and the Redmi K20 Pro, but only its Chinese version.
We highlight the Essential Phone that already in recent updates has been the first manufacturer to make available shortly after being official, the update for their equipment. OnePlus is also at the forefront, making a beta version available to its users.
Essential says the launch has started for "select" customers who have purchased the unlocked device, so it should be a while before everyone gets the update, but demonstrates that it is now available with stronger privacy protections. and user safety, the long-awaited Dark Theme, Smart Notification Response, gesture navigation, and more.
The sub-brand Xiaomi Redmi was also very fast and is already launching the Android 10 update for the K20 Pro in China, while in other countries it has already started to release a Beta version. This is especially interesting considering the weight of MIUI on Google's Android Skin, as Essential Phone uses the base version of the Android interface.
The Redmi K20 Pro still uses MIUI 10, but now on Android 10 and all its news. However, as you use MIUI, no visual changes will be visible in this update. This should only happen when you reach MIUI 11, which is expected to happen in late September.
Finally, OnePlus is releasing an Android 10-based Open Beta version for OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro. This is after several developer views, and while not a stable update like Essential and Xiaomi are coming out, it's still something to please the owners of the latest OnePlus devices, as until now the beta version that was available was devoted to developers and could present several bugs during use.
OxygenOS Open Beta 1 comes with customizable icon shapes for quick setups, game space, message spam keyword blocking, and smart display – which supports smart information based on specific times, locations, and events. As this is beta software, the user may encounter application compatibility issues as well as some system instability.
