Before the “Made By Google” event and the launch of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro phones, Google made the decision to delay the release of Android 14.

Many of the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro improvements will be found in the software. It is expected that the two phones will be among the first phones to ship with Android 14, and many applications and services will be built around the Android 14 database. This makes it even more interesting that Google decided to delay the release of the Android 14 source code.

The release version of Android 14 was expected to be released on September 5 through the Android Open Source Project page, at which point the software will have moved through the ecosystem, whether it be a small hobbyist project reaching out to multinational manufacturers. Mishaal Al-Rahman’s report The delay is due to vulnerabilities in the latest Android Security Release notes will be posted on October 4th… which many consider to be the new launch date for Android 14, which is also the day before Google’s launch event for the Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro.

The delay in the final release isn’t entirely unexpected; Google released an unscheduled fifth beta for Android 14 in mid-August, which indicates that more work and more testing is needed. This delay supports that.

It remains to be seen what will happen with other manufacturers planning to launch their own operating systems based on Android 14 (such as OnePlus’ OxygenOS 14, which was announced last week to arrive on September 25th).

However, this will be the first launch of the Pixel which coincides with the release of the Android open source project code. The Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro are unlikely to go on sale immediately after the event, as most manufacturers will open pre-orders at an event followed by a staggered release across different regions and Google will be no different.

This leaves a few weeks for Google to prepare an over-the-air update for Android 14 with the latest security fixes in place and the latest software updates.
