When is Android 13 coming to my phone?

(Pocket-lint) – The next major software update to Google’s Android mobile operating system is officially rolling out. It started with Google’s own Pixel phones in August. But the official release of Android 13 for devices from some manufacturers won’t happen until next year. If you’re confused about this, no worries. Pocket-lint has made it easy for you to understand.

Check below for your phone brand. If it is listed, you can run some form of Android 13 – whether it’s a beta or the new official release.

When will Android 13 be available?

On August 15, 2022, the Pixel 4, Pixel 5, and Pixel 6 devices got Android 13 as a free over-the-air software update.

“This month, all supported Pixel devices running Android 12 will receive the Android 13 software update, which begins rolling out for most users today. The rollout will continue over the next few weeks depending on the carrier. Users will receive a notification once the OTA becomes available for their device”, a Google support page for Android 13 reads. “Check your Android version and update to receive the latest software.”


Android 13 will eventually be available for most newer Android phones and the latest and upcoming Android phones. The software update is expected to arrive later this year for devices from other manufacturers including Asus, HMD, Motorola, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Sony, Xiaomi, and Samsung. Now is the time to figure out what exact phone you have to see if it’ll be supported.

When will your phone get Android 13?

As soon as the most popular Android phone makers announce when they plan to support and roll out Android 13 to their handsets, Pocket-lint will update this page with the latest information available.


Sometime later this year in 2022, Google said Android 13 will come to your “favourite devices” from Asus – presumably the Zenfone and ROG phone series.

If previous timelines are anything to go by, we’ve noticed that Asus typically pushes an update around 2 months after launch, this would put the date around the end of October or early November. The ROG gaming phones typically take longer to receive major updates, and we might expect those in 2023.
