– Nothing Phone (1)
– iQOO 11
– Vivo X90 Pro

– Realme GT 2 Pro
How To Download Android 14 Beta Version
Pixel phone users can easily access the Android 14 beta operating system through the Android developer’s platform. However, for users of non-Pixel Android smartphones, the process of downloading the latest beta 2 updates is slightly different. They can visit their respective company’s website and find the necessary instructions and files to download and install Android 14 beta 2 on their devices.
Android 14 beta 2 Features
The recently released Android 14 Beta 2 introduces a range of exciting features, performance enhancements, and privacy improvements to the popular mobile operating system. You have new wallpaper customization options, including the ability to bring text and widgets, as well as create wallpapers with emojis.
This version also has some privacy-centric features like alerting users when an app wants to share their location data with third-party apps. Android 14 is also expected to offer lossless audio over USB which is critical for the success of the feature in years to come.
For visual changes, Android 14 gets native support for 10-bit HDR quality, which is now a given since most phones offer the technology. Google is likely to have a couple of more Android 14 beta versions before the public rollout is announced closer to the launch of the next Pixel series phones later this year.
