Android 9 Pie was officially released in early August and it was first made available to a slew of devices such as Google Pixel phones, OnePlus 6, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2s and OnePlus. It appears that the company is now testing Android Q OS since Google Pixel 3 XL as well as the older Google Pixel from 2016 have appeared on the Geekbench benchmarking platform with unreleased Android version.
Shown above is the screenshot of the original Google Pixel phone running on Android Q. Sailfish is the codename of the phone. The original Pixel smartphone was born with Android 7.0 Nougat and it has been recently treated with Android 9 Pie update.
The Google Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are guaranteed to receive Android software update for 3 years.
