LineageOS ends support for Android 9 Pie


In the last few months, we have seen here that LineageOS staff has been gradually expanding the list of devices supported by LineageOS 17.1 based on Android 10, thus offering an alternative upgrade for those who have a device abandoned by brands.

In parallel to this availability, the group of developers usually keeps the previous distribution active and with updates for some time, something that later closes when most of the supported devices migrate to the latest version, something that is in the process of happening.

According to information brought by the AndroidPolice staff, the expectation is that the LineageOS based on Android 9 Pie has its support officially closed, which means therefore to say that devices that are not migrated to the latest version will not receive new updates.

With that, we will initially have a list with 24 devices (between smartphones and tablets) that will initially be “abandoned”, unless developers take on the adaptation project for LineageOS 17.1 based on Android 10, including devices from Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei / Honor, Oppo, Lenovo, Asus and BQ.

Below, you can see the complete list of devices that are currently in this situation:
