Android P beta released for Pixels, Nokia 7 plus, Essential Phone, Xperia XZ2, other phones
Google kicked its I/O conference with an announcement related to Android Things and Android Auto, but Android P got in the spotlight as well. Along with the official launch of the new Android OS for smartphones, Google confirmed that a beta build is now available for download.

However, unlike in the previous years when these beta builds were a Google Pixel/Nexus affair, for the most part, this time the search giant has decided to make Android P beta available to additional smartphones launched by other major companies.

Apparently, this is possible due to Project Treble, which means some of the companies that made their smartphones compatible with this program are now being rewarded in some way.

Long story short, besides the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL, Android P beta is now available for download for the following handsets: Essential Phone, Nokia 7 plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21UD, Vivo X21 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S.

Keep in mind that in order to download the Android P beta, you'll have to enroll your compatible smartphone in the beta program first, which can be done at the dedicated website that we've linked below.
