Android 13 Beta Update Now Available For These Non-Google Smartphones! Check Full List For Android 13 Beta
Google has released a new beta update for its latest mobile OS Android 13.
This is the second beta update and the official announcement is expected to take place later this year.
For Developers Only
This update is available on non-Pixel devices as well, such as certain OnePlus, Realme, Vivo, Xiaomi phones, etc.
However, as these OEMs suggest, this Android 13 beta is in the form of a developer preview which makes it suitable for developers and not an average user.
A total of 12 OEMs are part of the Android 13 Beta program.
List of OEMs and their devices include:
- Pixel 4
- Pixel 4 XL
- Pixel 4a
- Pixel 4a 5G
- Pixel 5
- Pixel 5a
- Pixel 6
- Pixel 6 Pro
- Xiaomi 12
- Xiaomi 12 Pro
- Xiaomi Pad 5
- Oppo Find X5 Pro
- Oppo Find N
- Asus Zenfone 8
- Lenovo Tab P12 Pro
- Nokia X20
- OnePlus 10 Pro
- Realme GT 2 Pro
- Sharp Aquos Sense 6
- Tecno Camon 19 Pro 5G
- Vivo X80 Pro
- ZTE Axon 40 Ultra
Owners of eligible devices can enrol themselves on the beta programme.
After enrolment it’s only a matter of a single click, and the beta update should be ready for your device in a few hours or less.
However, OEMs don’t follow Google’s timeline and have their own enrolments programme.
So it isn’t Google’s fault if an eligible Android 13 Beta 2 device isn’t getting the update.
More devices will likely follow.
The next Android 13 beta update is scheduled to be released in June.
This update will be called Platform Stability, since it will have the final SDK and BDK APIs along with app-facing system behaviours of the OS.
It’s important to note that since these are beta updates, they are likely to be buggy.
The 13th iteration comes with a range of privacy-protection features.
There are now new permissions for sending notifications, a privacy-protecting photo picker, and improved permissions for pairing with nearby devices and accessing media files.
The Android 13 also has app-specific language settings, support for HDR, matching apps icons, Bluetooth LE audio, and MIDI 2.0 over USB.
