Motorola will bring Android 9.0 Pie to several handset this fall

Motorola didn't want to say what smartphones will receive Android 9 Pie updates and when, but promised to come up with new information when it decides on a roadmap.

But the big question following nearly every major Android release each year is: will my phone get it? Let's hope HTC's engineers get the software ready sooner rather than later. Sadly, the latter has been missing for many using 5V/3A cables, including the one that comes with the handset in specific instances across Reddit and Google's Issue Tracker.

Now that Android 9.0 Pie is official, the burning question of our time is when will your particular handset be updated to this latest version of Android, if at all? The company recently rolled out Android P Developer Preview 5 (Beta 4) for the mid-range smartphone, Nokia 7 Plus.

Sony is also getting ready to launch a new flagship, the Xperia XZ3 at IFA 2018 which is scheduled to start at the end of this month.

Huawei has been notoriously slow when it comes to providing updates for devices. Some Pixel XL owners on Android Pie say that the "rapidly charging" message never pops up anymore after updating to Pie, while others say that the phone has gotten pickier about what chargers can provide rapid charging. OnePlus' older devices including the 5T, 5, 3T and 3 are also expected to receive the update. When the fix arrives we will have to see if it does indeed fix everything. While the beta which is now available offers a Pure Android experience, the stable Android Pie update will mark the reintroduction of MIUI. Granted, that there is no way for Google as a company to differentiate the former from people who record phone calls for blackmail, there needs to be an effective solution in place that doesn't depend on carriers.

Google Home is awesome; here's how to make it even better!
