Paranoid Android releases Android 10 custom ROMs for the OnePlus 7 Pro and Redmi K20

Paranoid Android has been one of the most popular custom ROMs for a wide range of devices. The ROM did go on a short hiatus after its Oreo release, but the team had announced its return with Android Pie releases for several popular phones such as the Xiaomi POCO F1, Mi 8, Mi 6, Mi 5, Mi Mix 2S, and the Essential Phone, and then followed it up with new releases and new features for more phones, including the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Sony Xperia X, the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6T, the Xiaomi Mi A1 and the Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite. The Xiaomi Mi 9 and the Xiaomi Mi 9T/Redmi K20 were also recently added to their lists. Now, the Paranoid Android team has now announced Android 10 builds, starting with builds for the OnePlus 7 Pro and the Xiaomi Mi 9T.

Along with the upgrade to Android 10 and the new releases that follow, the Paranoid Android team has a few other announcements to make. First, the team has assimilated team members from the popular CypherOS team, allowing for better collaboration across the board. The team is also continuing its collaboration with Hampus Olsson and will be including his Abstruct Wallpaper app in their builds. Future PA builds will also include Retro Music Player as the default music player. And since Google has dropped the dessert naming convention with Android 10, Paranoid Android is adopting its own naming convention based on minerals, starting with Quartz.

Paranoid Android Quartz with Android 10 is planned for the following devices:
