Google Pixel Ultra, Huawei P20 Pro, Honor View 10, Xiaomi Poco F1 and Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S are the new devices added in the official LineageOS 16.0 support list.

Lineage OS is the most popular, community-driven custom ROM that brings latest Android build and updated security patches on many old and new devices. A main advantage of LineageOS 16.0 is that it updates many devices to the Android 9.0 Pie even before the manufacturer has officially made it available.
