Technically, I guess only the higher officials at Google actually know what it might name Android 10 but perhaps there are many suggestions made on account of its monikers such as Quiche, Quintim, Quesito, Queen of Puddings, and others. However, Google squashed the rumors after it officially declared that it will be naming the new OS as Android 10. In fact, Google will follow the suit in future releases where Android R will become Android 11 and so on. Anyways, Android 10 is the most-awaited and security cum privacy attuned OS from Android as it brings some key aspects that will strengthen user’s security and privacy. Features like 5G, foldable displays, dark mode, Live Captions, revamped UI are just the tip of the iceberg that Android 10 offers.

Android 10 Features

Gesture Navigation: It is contentious I know but it is a feature must try. It uses gestures on the display to perform actions like going backward or proceeding to the home screen or launching app previews and so on.

Live Caption: Android 10 brings Live Caption onboard. The feature can transcribe everything from audio files to video files to podcasts and recordings, etc. This can come handy when you are stuck in a language barrier and a super handy feature for those who can’t hear stuff since it can transcribe what’s happening around as well.

Dark Mode: As opposed to the light there, Dark Mode is the opposite where the UI is painted dark. This helps relieve the battery from excess consumption while providing meditative to the eyes as well since it doesn’t put much strain on the eyes.

Smart Reply: Want to reply but don’t feel like typing? Smart Reply is at your service as the AI-attuned feature uses the context of the email or messages to provide appropriate one words or one-liner responses that you can single tap and send. This feature also prescribes actions at some time if there’s any video link in the message or location, etc.

Security Updates: Unlike any previous Android OS that would require security updates via OTA, Android 10 enabled smartphones will get their security updates faster and efficiently through Google Play Store where Google will push the updates directly onto the smartphones and not via OEMs or carriers. Google will also release bug fixes and patches on the way although users will have to depend on OTA updates for critical issues that will continue as well.

Privacy & Location Controls: Android 10 comes with stringent policies on privacy and locations. It provides options where the user wants apps to obtain its location or not or only when in use. Furthermore, Android 10 has a dedicated ‘Privacy’ tab within the Settings app that has options like permissions, personal data, and activities, etc.

Why my smartphone isn’t eligible for Android 10?

You need to understand that there are multiple factors that determine if your phone will be eligible for any updates such as Android 10in this case. Here’s a bit of an idea that you might help discern if your phone is eligible or not. First of all, Google develops a new OS (Android 10) and conducts beta tests before releasing it officially. Next up, it goes through the smartphone manufacturer which usually customizes it by adding, removing, replacing, altering the features and the UI in order to suit its own brand and then releases it further in a priority basis where the phone released this year are prioritized over those released last year. The maximum tenure a phone is covered for major Android updates is two years under Android One program.

Unless your phone is not listed as an Android One smartphone, it doesn’t guarantee any updates but there are many variables here. First up is that your phone’s processor must support it, the phone must meet the minimum resource requirements for each Android update which is only taking an upward trend now. OEMs that manufacturer phones with Android release multiple numbers of models in a year. In fact, some companies could go as far as launching more than 10 models in a year which means keeping all the devices updating involves a lot of time and effort from the OEM’s end as the update is generally altered according to the various configurations of the phones.
