Android 14: Which Phones Will Get the Update?


As with the past couple of years, 2023 saw the release of yet another Android version, Android 14 (or Upside down cake for those with a preference for dessert names). With that, the same question pops up every single year: Which smartphones will receive the Android 14 update? Apart from the already updated Pixel models, this article lists the smartphones that are promised or expected to be updated to the new Android release in 2023 (and 2024 in some cases).

After many brands improved their update policy throughout 2022, the Android 14 update frequency is expected to be even better. Especially when it comes to flagship devices, the biggest brands are now standardizing in promising at least three Android upgrades, but unfortunately, not all of them extended the revised policies to older models.

Long before the Android 14 stable release, we already knew which Pixel phones would get the update. For the other brands, we can reasonably predict some of the phones that will be updated, based on previous Android versions’ rollouts.

Google

As usual, the Pixel phone line was the first to receive the update. These Google smartphones are already showing the upgrade notification for the operating system 2023 upgrade:

Samsung

Samsung delivered when it came to the Android 13 updates, with many low-end devices from the South Korean brand receiving the new version before some of its rivals’ flagships. Samsung executives suggested the Android 14 rollout could be even faster, further raising the bar for its opponents, especially when compared to Chinese brands.

With that said, these are the Galaxy smartphones expected to be updated to Android 14 with OneUI 6.

Xiaomi

Keeping up with rivals Samsung and Oppo/OnePlus, Xiaomi offers a page (admittedly geared towards corporate customers) that lists models that will receive specific Android versions. Despite lagging behind when it comes to timely updates, Xiaomi at least offers a better idea of which version upgrades will selected handsets receive, and most importantly, security patches that will still be provided for these models.

Curiously, despite the MIUI replacement, HyperOS shipping with Android 14, the initial batch of Xiaomi phones getting the new Google operating system are updating the traditional MIUI skin.

Expected devices

With the new HyperOS replacing the veteran MIUI in time for the Xiaomi 14 launch, the Chinese brand is expected to announce more models as soon as it makes the traditional launch showcasing all the new features.

Oppo

Oppo, alongside its subsidiary OnePlus started its Android 14 update before the end of 2023. The company also announced an initial list of smartphones that will be updated to the new system.
