Where's Android 10 for my smartphone?

Not sure if your phone will get Android 10? You've come to the right place.

Android 10 has been out for more than a year now, and whether you're excited about its new permission settings for apps or the glorious dark mode, there are plenty of reasons to be eager for it to arrive on your phone. Even with Android 11 available for Pixel devices, there are many handsets that are still awaiting the update to Android 10.

However, as with all Android updates, there's a difference between when Google launches the final build and when the new software actually arrives on your smartphone. We'll be taking a look at all of the major Android phone makers and breakdown when exactly you can expect an Android 10 update for your device. Let's dive a bit deeper and find out which of the best Android phones have been updated to Android 10.
