Every year Google releases a beta version of operating system for the users to test out. But mostly the beta is for the Google phones aka Pixels and Nexus phones. Although this year, the company has decided that some phones from its OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) will be the part of Android P beta program. The list includes esteemed named such as Xiaomi, Nokia, Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus which will receive updates.
However, not all the phones from these companies will be included. The list is limited and small at the moment.
Of course, Google's Pixel phones will be included in this list. It is interesting that most of the phones mentioned above are running either Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 or MediaTek's Helio P60 processors. Traditionally, the beta program has been exclusive to the Google users. It'd be really interesting to see how the hardware of these devices responds to the beta version of Android P.
Although this program is surely a welcome step for the users as more of them would be able to get their hands dirty with the preview. It might help Google solve some critical bugs as well before the full-fledged roll out.
