The Android Q Beta is likely launching in just a few hours

This is the featured image for the 283rd Android Apps Weekly

The sheet says it's an unknown device running Android Q AOSP on ARM64 processor but we all know what the "walleye" codename means - Google Pixel 2. This is apparently a confirmation that the beta will drop on March 11th.

Iliyan Malchev, a Project Treble development team member, went on the Android Developers Backstage podcast to talk about the progress on his ongoing effort to streamline the incredibly clunky software update process. We're looking at even more handsets than previous year, although no specific models were named. I assumed that was in part due to Treble, making it easier for those devices to be....

New versions of Android are usually released in the second half of the year, with the latest stable version - Android 9 Pie - having reached Pixel devices in August last year.

Illiyan: Yeah, in fact it was fully due to Treble.

Kepa Arrizabalaga apology accepted by Chelsea players, says Ruben Loftus-Cheek
When everyone talked about my dismissal, I was talking with the club to plan the team for next season, so I was always relaxed". Sixth-placed Chelsea have 56 points, five behind third-placed Spurs, who they beat 2-0 last Wednesday.

A big surprise regarding the Android P beta a year ago was the inclusion of third-party manufacturers in the initiative.

As we mentioned, the Google Issue Tracker for Android Q Beta (OEM) has been opened, and as XDA Developers' Mishaal Rahman notes, the link to check for existing bug filters by date created after March 11, tipping the release will be today itself.

We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for this, but if it does launch today like Android P's first preview in mid-March 2018, Google Pixel owners should be able to test out the software themselves. The number is bigger for the upcoming Android release, which I am very happy about. But the trend is positive and strong, and I am very happy about this. The list included several brand new Android handsets, even devices that were not available in stores: Sony Xperia XZ2, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Nokia 7 Plus, Oppo R15 Pro, Vivo X21, OnePlus 6, and Essential PH-1.

While he didn't reveal the exact number or name of the devices which would be eligible for the Android Q Beta Program, he did admit that this year, the Beta program will have wide coverage.
