Huawei

What can we say about Huawei? We include this Chinese manufacturer for completeness. However, I don't think you need to know the likelihood of their devices receiving an Android update. We believe that their newer models will most likely use their Harmony OS.

Honor

It looks very similar to Huawei with Honor because it is an offshoot of Huawei. They are still an independent company, but they plan to produce 100 million smartphones by 2021. Honor is still learning its way, including getting in the good books by Google through being part of the "Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Consortium" as part of their shedding of Huawei. The new models, such as the Honor View 40 global model, will run Android and support Google services. However, it remains to see what kind of support their older smartphones will receive.

  • Honor View 40
  • Honor 50
  • Honor 50 Lite

OnePlus

We are used to OnePlus's excellent update policy and quick implementations of new Android versions in its early years. OnePlus seems to have been slowing down with the addition of new series.
