Google will soon release a new version of its mobile operating system – Android 14. It has a number of improvements compared to the previous version of Android 13, but, as always, an Android update is the funeral of old smartphones whose life cycle has come to an end.
Full list of smartphones that will receive the update to the latest version of Android 14
Unfortunately, most brands (with the exception of Xiaomi) then forget about updating the visual shell, which is why a smartphone that does not receive a new version of Android will no longer be able to breathe a breath of “fresh air” and can only rely on security patches.
And you should also remember that some developers update their smartphones quickly, some slowly, and some divide smartphones by update priority. This list was created based on information that the developer himself provides about the device update period.
And if you want to quickly find out whether the update will come to your smartphone, use the buttons below to quickly go to your brand
Google is always the first to release updates for its Pixel smartphones. There are no surprises here – Android 14 will be available to all smartphones in the Pixel 5 line and above, as well as the Pixel 4A 5G.
Unfortunately, the legends Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are overboard this year, but this is as predictable as possible, because the life cycle of Google smartphones is 3 years from the date of release.
The Korean giant traditionally promptly updates its flagships and some budget models. Here are the Samsung devices that are most likely to be updated to Android 14:
- Galaxy Flip series: all smartphones starting from Flip 3
- Galaxy Fold series: all smartphones starting from Fold 3
- Galaxy S series: all smartphones starting from S21
- Galaxy A Series:
- All Galaxy A52, A53, A54 smartphones
- Galaxy A33, Galaxy A34
- Galaxy A23, Galaxy A24
- Galaxy A13, Galaxy A14
- Galaxy A04s
- Galaxy Tab series: all tablets starting with Galaxy Tab S8
Unfortunately, this year all smartphones of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 line left the update cycle. And time flies so quickly that the first folding Samsung smartphones are also already on their way to retirement: this year the Galaxy Fold 2 and the first generation Galaxy Flip are leaving us .
Xiaomi is updating mainly its flagship and mid-budget lines. Android 14 expected for:
- All smartphones of the Xiaomi 12 line (except Xiaomi 12X)
- All smartphones of the Xiaomi 13 line
- All smartphones of the Xiaomi Mix Fold line
- Xiaomi Pad 6 and Pad 6 Pro tablets
- Redmi Note 11R/11T Pro/11T Pro+
- Redmi Note 12 / 12 Pro / 12 Pro+ / 12 Pro Speed / 12 S / 12 Turbo

- All Redmi K60 series smartphones
- POCO C51, C55
- POCO M4 and above
- POCO X4 5G/X4 GT
- POCO X5/X5 Pro
- POCO F4/F4 GT-
- POCO F5/F5 Pro
Well, we can trace the trend of refusal of support for smartphones on Snapdragon 870 and Snapdragon 888. Also, the unknown situation regarding Xiaomi Pad 5 and Pad 5 Pro, this information requires clarification.
Well, it’s not so difficult here, because these guys have no confusion at all this year.
- All Realme GT series smartphones
- The entire Realme 11 line
- The entire Realme 10 line
- Realme 9, Realme 9 Pro, Realme 9 Pro Plus
- Realme V25, Realme V23, Realme V23i, Realme V20
- Realme C55, Realme C33, Realme C30
- Realme Q5/Q5 Pro/Q5i
- Realme Narzo N55, Realme Narzo 50 5G, Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G
This year, all Realme 8 and lower smartphones left us, but it’s nice that even the first Realme GT and all subsequent models in this line are still supported
Well, there’s nothing surprising here. The brand currently has only two smartphones, and both will receive Android 14 – Nothing Phone (1) and Nothing Phone (2).
These guys are an example of how not to support your devices. The life cycle of their devices is 2 years, so the list of devices here is as uninteresting as possible.
- Asus Zenfone 9
- Asus Zenfone 10
- Asus ROG Phone 6 and above
OnePlus is a brand that has always been good in terms of support. Although it used to be very close to pure Android Oxygen OS, and now it’s just a custom Oxygen OS with a few classic OnePlus stuff, they’re still updating quickly. So, the list of smartphones is as follows:
- The entire OnePlus 9 line
- The entire OnePlus 10 line
- The entire OnePlus 11 line
- OnePlus 8T
- OnePlus Nord 3
- OnePlus Nord CE 3
- OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite
- OnePlus Nord 2T
- OnePlus Nord 2
- OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G
- OnePlus Nord N30
It is not yet known whether the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will receive the update because their 3-year life cycle has expired, but if the OnePlus 8T receives the update, then it would be logical for the older OnePlus 8 Pro to receive it as well.
Motorola is updating a limited number of models. On Android 14 you can count on:
- Motorola Edge 30 and Edge 40
- Moto G200 5G
- Moto G82 5G
- Moto G62 5G
- Moto G52
Another manufacturer that you shouldn’t follow in terms of the number of updates is the Japanese brand Sony. On Android 14 you can count on:
- Sony Xperia 1 IV and Xperia 1 V
- Sony Xperia 5 IV and Xperia 5 V
- Sony Xperia 10 IV and Xperia 10 V
Oppo also updates its flagship lines quite quickly, like other BBK brands. However, the number of devices leaves much to be desired. Android 14 will most likely receive:
- The entire Oppo Find X3 series
- The entire Oppo Find X5 series
- The entire Oppo Find X6 series
- All Oppo Reno 8 series
- All Oppo Reno 9 series
- All Oppo Reno 10 series
- Oppo Reno 7Z 5G
- Oppo Reno 7

- Oppo A78 4G
- Oppo A58 4G
- Oppo A1 Pro
- Oppo A1
- Oppo F23
- Oppo F21 Pro 5G
- Oppo F21 Pro
Another representative of the BBK holding Vivo has approximately the same life cycle as other BBK smartphones. This:
- The entire Vivo X90 line
- The entire Vivo X80 line
- Vivo X70 Pro, Vivo X70 Pro Plus
- Vivo Y35
- Vivo Y53s
- Vivo Y75 5G
- Vivo Y75
- Vivo V25 Pro
- Vivo V25
- Vivo V23 Pro
- Vivo V23
- Vivo V23e 5G
- Vivo T1/T1 Pro/T1x
The update cycle does not change much from year to year, but next year should leave more smartphones alive than this year, because the same S21 series was the first to receive support from the manufacturer for 4 years of system updates, while the S20 only had three. as well as everyone else, this trend can be traced.
Also, it is worth noting that this list is not final, and some inaccuracies are possible, because the information was taken in accordance with the companies’ statements about the potential support period for smartphones, as well as smartphones already taking part in beta testing of Android 14.
