Just an hour after Google released Beta 4 of Android P for the Pixel lineup of devices, Essential has released their own Beta 3 for the Essential Phone, which is this latest beta from Google. The update is build is PPR1.180610.066 for those keeping score at home. If you have an Essential Phone registered in the company’s Android P beta program, you should be getting the update today if you don’t have it already through the Beta app from Essential.
Essential, like OnePlus, Oppo, and Sony to name a few, generally runs a few days or weeks behind Google on these releases. Of all the partners, Essential is by far the quickest in getting these updates out but today’s one hour gap, even for them, is fast.
With Android P expected to be released to the general public in August, it is hard not to assume that Essential will have their update for the Essential Phone out quickly behind that release.
If you have your Essential Phone registered and have the Beta program app, you should have the update ready to install.
