Original story (published on April 27) follows:

Paranoid Android announced its first Quartz alpha build based on Android 10 for select handsets back in late September 2019. The Redmi K20 aka Xiaomi Mi 9T, OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 6, and OnePlus 6T.

At the time, there was no room for devices like the standard OnePlus 7 or even the Redmi K20 Pro, also known as Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro. But when the official version went live mid this month, the number of supported devices expanded to include units from multiple other vendors.

Devices that got it first included the OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 6/6T, OnePlus 3/3T, Xiaomi Mi 9, Mi 6, Redmi 5, Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2, Max Pro M1, and the Essential Phone.

Paranoid Android 10 (Quartz) first release

Today, the developers of Paranoid Android have added a bunch of new devices to the custom ROM, namely OnePlus 5, OnePlus 5T, and OnePlus 7T Pro. For some reason, there is still no room for the standard OnePlus 7.

The new version bundles a few more features to add to the many introduced in the first release, namely support for face unlock on eligible devices, volume panel, and a bottom brightness slider. Below is the complete changelog:

– Face Unlock.
– New volume panel.
– New statusbar brightness slider.
– Added support for single-tap to ambient display(only on devices with kernel support for it).
– Fixed crash on screen recording.

Of course, the wait for Paranoid Android 10 to hit the OnePlus 7 and 7T shouldn’t be long, but we can’t give you a specific date. Another device whose official Paranoid Android 10 update is almost ready is the Mi A2.

As of this writing, the device has already picked up the unofficial version of the ROM, hinting at the imminent arrival of the official version. But again, similar to the standard OnePlus 7 and 7T, we don’t have any specific dates with us.

The devs have also confirmed the following list of devices is being lined up for an update to Paranoid Android 10 in the coming weeks:


Update 1 (June 13)

Release 3 of the Quartz project brings more devices and adds in new features as well. Head here for more details.

Tech has been my playground for over a decade. While the Android journey began early, it truly took flight with the revolutionary Lollipop update. Since then, it's been a parade of Android devices (with a sprinkle of iOS), culminating in a mostly happy marriage with Google's smart home ecosystem. Expect insightful articles and explorations of the ever-evolving world of Android and Google products coupled with occasional rants on the Nest smart home ecosystem.
