Over the past few months, some devices have received official LineageOS 16 builds. These builds not only give older devices a new deadline but also give users the opportunity to experience Android 9 Pie on their devices. As a result, users with devices such as the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S4 Active, Moto X (2014), and LG G3 can now enjoy all the new features that Google introduces in Android Pie. Now, the LineageOS team has expanded support for several other devices and has released official builds based on Android 9 Pie for Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2, ZenFone 3, Yandex Phone, Galaxy S3 Neo, Redmi Note 4X, Xperia Z3 Compact, and Moto G7.
Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2
The ZenFone Max Pro M2 is one of the best cheap handsets that comes from the stability of Asus. Although the company has officially released the Android 9 Pie build for the device, in case you are not satisfied with the original ROM, you are happy to know that the LineageOS team has now officially announced support for the device. Currently, there are no LineageOS 16 builds for this device, but you can check the download pages linked below to find new builds as they work.
Asus ZenFone 3
ZenFone 3 from 2016, upgraded only to Android 7 Nougat, has also received official support for LineageOS 16. The latest builds for this device carry all the features of Android Pie for older devices and offer an Android experience that is almost identical to many customization options.
Similarly, Yandex Phone from Russian search giant Yandex has also received support for LineageOS 16. The device was launched late last year with Android 8.1 Oreo and with the latest LineageOS builds, users will be able to enjoy Android 9 Pie on their devices.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo from 2014, launched with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, has also received a LineageOS 16 build. You can download builds on your device from the link below, but make sure you install the right variant or you can end your device.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X from 2017 has also received official support for LineageOS 16, which allows users to experience close to the original Android 9 Pie on their device.
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
In case you have the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact lying around, you can now breathe new life into your device with this Build LineageOS 16. The device launched in 2014 has only just been upgraded to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so it’s great to see additional developers supporting Android 9 Pie for such an older device.
Finally, the Moto G7 from the beginning of this year also received a build of LineageOS 16 based on Android 9 Pie. While the device was launched with Android 9 Pie as soon as it was shipped, you can view this build if you’re not happy with the original ROM and want more customization features.
