Android 13 Tiramisu Update: Beta, Top Features, Release Date, Eligible Devices and more
There is still some time for Google to release Android 13, but we have already begun receiving some early leaks over this Android version. (This article was first published on August 18, 2021)
We have a codename for Android 13, leaked just days ago, it’s based on an Italian dessert ‘Tiramisu‘. This dessert can be clearly seen in the featured image I’ve used in this article. But I don’t know how delicious it is. More such Android 13 leaks should be on the way.
In the current scenario, the users are looking for their device’s eligibility over the Android 12 OS ‘Snowcone’. This 2021 announced operating system has not yet made its way to the third party OEMs and the top contenders of which are Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Realme, and Oppo. Most of the users are from these brands are eagerly waiting for the new software.
Meanwhile, the Pixel users who have been testing the Android 12 since the beginning of the year (February 2021), might now be used to this software. And now, the Android 13 news might get their excitement going. So, here we are with everything on Google’s next year’s Android OS.
Being a Pixel user is sometimes worthful, mostly when you are more of a software guy, and like to test the Android. The Android 13 news at this point in time may not be a big deal for the users of Google phones.
Meanwhile, the other OEMs, which begin their testing after the stable release of Android might disappoint their users, for a while. The Android 13 release in 2022 could happen in February if this year’s Android schedule is anything to go by.
The US tech firm will begin with the developer’s previews in February 2022. This was followed by the beta updates and the final stable release, which could most likely happen in September.
As far as the non-pixels are concerned, those who are undoubtedly ready/eligible for the Android 13, have to wait until the stable version of this OS is officially released for the Pixel users.
If we follow the previous trend of Android rollout for the third parties, Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, and Vivo will most likely start their beta testing in the early fourth quarter or in the beginning of 2022.
