Developers port Android 10 to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Redmi 6 Pro, OnePlus 5/5T, LG V30, and Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e
Android 10 updates are now underway for several devices, either officially or unofficially. The latest version of Android was officially released early this month, and if you have a recent Pixel, OnePlus or Xiaomi device, then you may already be running the latest and greatest from Google. If you haven’t yet, then an update may be underway and is set to come to your phone in the near future. Of course, custom ROMs are also an option, especially if you have a relatively older device. And custom ROMs based on Android 10 have started to pop up all across our forums. Now, the latest devices receiving unofficial Android 10 updates include the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Redmi 6 Pro, the OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 5T, the LG V30, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, a budget device from Xiaomi launched in early 2017, also has its dose of Android 10, in the form of LineageOS 17 as well. There are issues with the device’s fingerprint sensor after rebooting, but for the most part, it seems to work well.
The Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro has Pixel Experience builds based on Android 10, and while the developer says that the builds have no known issues, you should still tread carefully.
The OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T have received unofficial crDroid 6.0 builds based on Android 10. Some users are reporting issues with Bluetooth as well as issues with the fingerprint scanner in the case of the OP5T, but apparently your mileage may vary.
There is also an unofficial LG V30 build of LineageOS 17. It’s considered as an “alpha” by the developer, though, and there are a fair few bugs that may break your overall experience.
The Galaxy Tab S5e, one of Samsung’s most recent tablets, has received an unofficial build of LineageOS 17.0, which seems to be bugless (at least for the most part).
While these builds are available for downloading, you should treat them as experimental builds, given how Android 10 has only been out for some weeks.
