Android 13 Developer Preview builds are now available for these non-Google devices

It’s raining Android 13 builds! Now that the Google’s beta testing phase is over, we are all very excited about the launch of the stable version of Android 13. As usual, the Pixel line of smartphones are the first to gain access to the new software. However, other OEMs have also announced their own Android 13 beta initiatives in the form of “Developer Preview” programs.

Keep in mind that OEM-specific Developer Preview releases don’t exactly align with Google’s beta program. You might not get periodic OTA updates on the preview channel like the Pixels, and the stable-to-beta transition (or vice-versa) might require a clean flash. Furthermore, the pre-release builds are usually quite barebones compared to the respective OEM skins. Still, if you see your phone on this list, it’s very likely you’ll be one of the first to get the stable Android 13 update when it finally launches.

Vivo/iQOO

Due to the fact that Vivo (and its sub-brand iQOO) shares the BBK Electronics bloodline with OPPO, OnePlus, and Realme, it also has an Android 12 beta program of its own.


Xiaomi

Unlike most other OEMs on this list, Xiaomi isn’t limiting access to the beta to just one of its devices. Instead, it’s offering eligibility to one tablet and two of its phones.
