For Sony, Android 9 Pie updates are kicking off very soon. This shouldn’t come as a surprise considering Sony’s spot in the Android P Beta program, and the company’s history of pretty quick updates. The company promises (via Android Authority) that its Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ2 lineups will both start getting Android Pie upgrades starting in September and finishing up around November. Phones included are listed below.

Update: As discovered by XDA-Developers, Sony actually hasn’t confirmed that these phones will be updated to Pie, but will be releasing a roadmap “soon.”

Along with that, HTC has also announced which devices it will be updating to Android 9 Pie. In a tweet, the company confirms that the HTC U12+ and the HTC U11 series will getting a slice of Pie, but no timelines are available just yet. Again, the phone included are listed below.
