According to recent reports, Google may have postponed the release of stable Android 14, the upgrade might not come until the beginning of October, when it was said to arrive. Compared to the previous one, Android 13, September was the month when it was launched as a stable version for compatible devices. It is clear that the firm may make us wait a little longer for the stable final version of Android 14 to hit our phones after this news. As per earlier reports, on October 4, the stable Android 14 release may go live and is anticipated to unveil the Pixel 8 series and Pixel Watch 2.
It’s quite a disappointment for the Android enthusiast community after five betas, a few developer previews, and finally months of expectation that increased with every new feature when it was unveiled. However, all Google had to give to the anticipated users this morning was a quarterly feature drop along with a new logo update, not a new stable OS version that was ready to be put on your phone. This was reported by the tipster, Mishaal Rahman, who stated that he just learned that Android’s 14 source code release has been postponed till next month.
Also added is that even OEMs were expecting the release to happen today, so it seems the firm took this decision suddenly. This may be the fate of the new release, as OEMs have now been informed that the vulnerabilities described in the Android 14 Security Release Notes will be disclosed on October 4, 2023. Other specs also point out that the AOSP release has been delayed to coincide with the debut of a new Pixel model.
Google’s sudden decision’s effect on other OEMs
However, this sudden change in the debut date will truly affect other manufacturers like Samsung, as two One UI 6.0 beta-based Android 14 updates have already been made available. Now, because of Google, the South Korean manufacturer should also postpone their dates for the One UI 6.0 rollout. Not only for Samsung, this is the case for OnePlus, as it was said by the firm that OxygenOS 14’s stable version would hit the public on September 25th, but now the date will be postponed.
