Android 9 Pie: Is your phone getting Google's latest dessert?

Though Android Q's release is just months away, many are still waiting for Android 9 Pie to show up on their smartphones.

The update cycle for Android, unlike iOS, is slow and OEMs don't release updates for every single device they make.

Some high-end units see two updates, while others may not even get one.

Here's the list of phones that will get Pie.
