As with the past couple of years, 2023 will see the release of yet another Android version, presumably named "Android 14". With that, the same question pops up every single year: Which smartphones will receive the Android 14 update? Apart from the usual Pixel suspects, this article lists the smartphones that are promised or expected to be updated to the new Android release in 2023 (and 2024 in some cases).

After many brands improved their update policy throughout 2022, the Android 14 update frequeny is expected to be even better. Especially when it comes to flagship devices, the biggest brands are now standardizing in promising at least three Android upgrades, but unfortunately, not all of them extended the revised policies to older models.

With some weeks left until we have more details regarding Android 14, we can reasonably predict some of the phones that will be updated, based on previous Android versions' rollouts.

Google

As usual, the Pixel phone line will be the first to receive the update. These Google smartphones should show  the upgrade notification as soon as the new operating system goes live in Q3 2023:

Samsung

Samsung delivered when it came to the Android 13 updates, with many low-end devices from the South Korean brand receiving the new version before some of its rivals' flagships. Samsung executives suggested the rollout for Android 14 could be even faster, further raising the bar for its opponents, especially when compared to Chinese brands.

With that said, these are the Galaxy smartphones expected to be updated to Android 14 with OneUI 6:

Xiaomi

Keeping up with rivals Samsung and Oppo/OnePlus, Xiaomi offers a page (admittedly geared towards corporate customers) that listed models which will receive specific Android versions. Despite lagging behind when it comes to timely updates, Xiaomi at least offers a better idea of which version upgrades will selected handsets receive, and most importantly, security patches that will still be provided for these models.
