Google's Android P beta is out, and the good news is you don't need a Pixel or Pixel 2 smartphone to give it a test run. Thanks to Project Treble, Google has been able to work with a select group of OEMs to bring the Android P beta to their devices from day 1.

Google Android P has landed in beta and, for the first time, it is available on a select range of smartphones from other OEMs, in addition to Google’s own Pixel smartphones. The devices in question all support Google’s Project Treble, making this possible. It also makes the process of installing the Android P beta a lot less painful than in the past.

In addition to Google’s Pixel devices, these devices support the Android P beta:

Essential Phone PH-1
Nokia 7 Plus
Oppo R15 Pro
Sony Xperia XZ2
Vivo X21UD
Vivo X21
Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S

Just navigate to the source URL below on your device to install the beta. As the beta has been pre-signed by each of the manufacturers, there is absolutely no need to unlock the bootloader or root the device. Uninstalling the beta, and returning to your last certified OS is also just as easy.

As with all beta software, however, it is important to remember that it will be unstable and could result in issues that render your device unusable at worst. At best, it will enable you to get an early taste of Android P and contribute to its development by reporting bugs and requesting improvements.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have been particularly interested in all things Apple, but also enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture.
