This also extends to future releases like the Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 series, Pixel 8 series, Pixel Fold, and Pixel Tablet. While the Pixel 8 series and upcoming models are promised seven years of updates, older devices like the Pixel 5a will only have three years of support.

Android 15 Release Timeline

The exact release date for Android 15 is yet to be announced, but the official timeline indicates that the beta phase will run until June. Following this, the new OS will move into the platform stability phase, where final adjustments and bug fixes will be made before the public launch. Given the precedent set by Android 14's release alongside the Pixel 8 series in October last year, it is likely that Android 15 will follow a similar schedule, possibly coinciding with the launch of the Pixel 9 series.
