According to the bug tracker for Android Q Beta the beta will launch within 24 hours.

Earlier the versions were only made available on Google's own Nexus and Pixel devices. A report coming from XDA Developer website suggest that after this year's I/O event the Android P software will last for a few more months and will be later taken over by the then latest software Android Q. Generally, we have seen Google launching its new Android Versions around August and we can expect the same this year also. The new report suggests that for the next Android version aka Android Q, Google is working on collaborating with more and more OEMs to have them run Android Q Beta update. "The number is bigger for the upcoming Android release, which I am very happy about".

It's not clear yet on which other brands and smartphones will be allowed on the Android Q beta programme, more details will be revealed in May at Google's I/O 2019 conference, where Google traditionally showcases beta developer previews of its upcoming flagship Android update. "I can not share the exact numbers yet", the report quoted Malchev as saying. In 2018, it was 7 OEM's, excluding Google, have got the access to test Android Pie on the devices and those were, Essential Phone, OnePlus 6, Nokia 7 Plus, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Vivo X21, Oppo R15 Pro and Sony's Xperia XZ2. He didn't reveal any further information but emphasized the trend is positive and strong.

This comes hot on the heels of another revelation that Google will add more phone companies to the Android Q beta, as Iliyan Malchev from Google's Project Treble team said on the Android Developers Backstage podcast.

Well, all the above developments reflect that Android Q Beta is finally paving its way for the general public and that too with more smartphone support.
