So far, only a few OEMs like OnePlus, HMD Global, and Sony have sent out the stable Pie update. Thankfully, the Android One program exists to combat that, and it's been rather effective so far, with a number of Android One phones receiving the update to Android Pie last week.

Android Pie was launched a while ago and hasn’t exactly gotten to a notable percentage of Android devices. Until now, that is, as a number of Android One phones have started receiving the update to Android Pie. 

The first of the lot, the Mi A2, received the stable Pie update two days ago. The device got the beta update last week, so users will be glad to receive the stable update almost immediately after. The update comes as a sizeable 1.06 GB download, and also doubles up as the November security patch. While the A2 has received the update, it’s unknown when its siblings, the A1 and A2 Lite will follow suit. According to a purported Xiaomi update roadmap, users of those devices may have to wait till Q1 2019.

The second device to receive the update is the Motorola One Power. According to a tweet by Motorola India, the device is currently receiving the Pie update, although it’s a staged rollout. The third device is the LG G7 One, LG’s irregular Android premium phone. The device was the first Android One offering by LG, and is also the first LG phone to receive Pie. Considering LG’s horrendous track record with updates, this is a welcome development, and we can only hope the South Korean company releases more Android One phones in the future.
