While Google is gearing up to release the next version of Android in the form of Q, manufacturers already started the adapt and develop the future firmware for their respective handsets. Today, ZTE has announced that the Axon 10 Pro will soon get a beta version of Android Q.
ZTE ships the Axon 10 in China with MiFavor UI – that’s a heavily customized version of Android. The international variants, in counterpart, ships with a close-to-vanilla Android. ZTE announced the arrival of Android Q beta on Weibo via a teaser poster shared by Mi Favor official account.
The poster comes with a QR code at the bottom corner. If you want to get a taste of the beta you’ll just need to scan the code and apply to join the program. Unfortunately, there’s no info of when ZTE will start dropping the Android Q builds for those enrolled in the program. Worth noting that those betas are meant for the MiFavorUI powered Axon 10 Pro units. Those with a Stock Android build, should wait to see if they’ll also get the same treatment.
