When is my phone getting Android 13? Google, Samsung, OnePlus, and more

Android 13 is finally here, and it’s a fairly minor update from Google. Well, we are saying minor, but that’s only compared to the positively gargantuan variety of changes that were in Android 12 — in addition to Google’s policy of trickling out improvements to Android apps over the course of a 12 months as soon as they’re ready. Android 13 is more of a tune-up to the engine that powers your phone than the rest. However it’s still one value getting excited for.

Tablet and foldable owners will see probably the most advantages, together with some updates to Material You to enhance Android’s customizability. There really isn’t much else to say about Android 13. It’s a really under-the-hood update, and its value will only grow to be clear within the months after its launch.


As for timelines, Google dropped Android 13 in August, with the Pixels getting it first and the likes of Samsung and Oppo following shortly after. Here’s when you’ll be able to expect it to land in your phone.

What phones will get Android 13?

Although not every smartphone maker has announced its Android 13 availability plans quite yet, we expect Android 13’s release to be just like Android 12, Android 11, and other previous versions. Google’s Pixel phones were among the many first to get the update, Samsung will follow soon after, and other brands will filter in over the approaching months. Google says that Samsung Galaxy, Asus, HMD (Nokia phones), iQOO, Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Sharp, Sony, Tecno, Vivo, Xiaomi, and more will probably be rolling out their updates shortly, though few brands have announced timescales.

Asus had been testing out an Android 13 update for the Asus Zenfone 8 shortly after rolling out Android 12 to its older flagships. Now the corporate has announced rollouts for each the Zenfone and ROG lines.

Asus expects the updates to start out in July, with the Zenfone 9 getting it then. The Zenfone 8 and ROG Phone 6 series will follow through the top of March 2023, while the ROG Phone 5 is timetabled to get it before June.

Google has announced that each one Pixel devices from the Pixel 4 will get Android 13. This implies the Pixel 4, 4XL, 4a, 4a 5G, 5, 5a, 6, 6a, and 6 Pro. The 3a and 3a XL have seen their final updates, while the Pixel 7 and seven Pro will launch with Android 13 onboard. On August 15, Google announced the rollout of Android 13 to all supported Pixels, signaling the beginning of the updates.

Samsung’s Android 13 update takes the form of One UI 5. The corporate’s newest version of Android will see it incorporate niceties corresponding to an expanded lock screen customization tool and “modes,” its tackle Apple’s iOS 16’s lock screen and focus modes, respectively.

Samsung has also incorporated all of Android 13’s features, including enhanced Material You theming and the brand new Privacy and Security dashboard. A Bixby Tell feature for answering your phone calls using text is coming, too, though Samsung says it would arrive in 2023.

It’s still the early days, but Samsung has been dishing Android 13 updates out rapidly to its sizeable stable of phones. The Galaxy S20, S21, and S22 have began receiving updates in parts of Europe, including Austria, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, the U.K, and the U.S., as reported by SamMobile. The Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4, Note 20, and A33 5G all also received Android 13 briefly order. Following that, the Galaxy Tab S8 was updated to Android 13 as one in all the primary tablets running Google’s more tablet-optimized operating system.

Before the top of the 12 months, the Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, and A53 are to be getting full releases as well. Following that, we expect every A-Series and S-Series Samsung phone released prior to now 4 years to get One UI 5 and Android 13 pretty quickly — the corporate’s estimates see these series of updates run through February 2023. That said, the tablets and foldables will, as we’ve mentioned, profit probably the most.

Though Samsung’s rollout has been especially speedy, the corporate says next 12 months’s will probably be even faster as it really works to shut the gap.

HMD Global isn’t the most effective at giving speedy updates for Nokia phones anymore, but it surely has been testing an Android 13 developer preview for the rugged Nokia XR20. It’s expected to maintain that phone updated through the subsequent 12 months at the least. The parents over at Nokia Mob also spotted HMD Global testing Android 13 for the newly released X30 5G, in addition to the G60 5G, X20, X10, and G50. These phones fall inside the company’s two years of software support. Other Nokia phones expected to receive Android 13 will probably be added once the corporate clarifies its plans.

The Nothing Phone 1 will probably be getting an Android 13 update, but it surely won’t be any time soon. The corporate confirmed in an emailed statement to Android Authority that it plans to push an update out before July 2023.

“We’re at all times working hard to enhance the Phone 1 user experience. To make sure this, operating system updates will probably be made available for normal download. With regard to Android 13, this will probably be launching for Phone 1 users in the primary half of 2023. Before releasing, we wish to fine-tune the software upgrade with Nothing’s hardware. We’ll you’ll want to keep you updated with further information,” a Nothing spokesperson said.

In keeping with CEO Carl Pei, a beta will probably be arriving for testers before the top of 2022. Impatient Nothing Phone 1 users will have the ability to choose it up then.

OnePlus and Oppo

OnePlus has announced Android 13 and OxygenOS 13 for the OnePlus 8 and newer models, in addition to the OnePlus Nord 2 and newer. As of September 2022, OnePlus has begun rolling out the stable construct of OxygenOS 13 to the OnePlus 10 Pro.

The OnePlus 10T will get the update “later this 12 months,” as will the Nord N200 and 8T+. Meanwhile, the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro each began receiving the Android 13 update on November 10. Following that, the OnePlus 8, 8 Pro, and 8T got their updates on November 15.

Parent company Oppo, then again, was testing builds for the Find N and Find X-series phones. It has now rolled out a stable release of ColorOS 13 to the Find X5 Pro and the Find X5. The Oppo Find X5 Pro will probably be available from September 15 in Australia, France, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, while the Find X5 has come to France and the UAE. Other countries will roll out in the longer term.

Sony Xperia

For the handful of oldsters rocking a Sony Xperia smartphone, Sony has detailed its initial rollout plans for Android 13.

On November 2, the Sony Xperia Twitter account announced that it’s “introducing the Android 13 Update with the newest features” first to the Xperia 1 IV and Xperia 5 IV. And … that’s it! Sony didn’t provide a timeline for when Android 13 is coming to the 1 IV and 5 IV, but on the very least, the update is confirmed and coming sooner or later.

Xiaomi and Realme

Xiaomi is currently testing Android 13 for the Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro, and Mi Pad 5. Likewise, Realme has a beta program for the GT 2 Pro, Realme 9 Pro, and Relame 9 Pro Plus but has yet to announce a comprehensive launch list. As in previous years, we expect those to return out in the next weeks.
