How to Know Your Phone’s Android Version

Each Android version has an easter egg too!

If you’re an Android user, did you ever wander to its settings and check what Android version it runs on? If not, this is definitely a must-try, and you may be surprised finding an easter egg.

Additionally, this will be helpful in buying pre-owned Android devices to check whether the phone operates on the latest versions out there. Because newer software gets the latest security patches, more features and functionalities, and probably even eligible for a major Android update.

So how do you check your device’s Android version? It’s easy and just needs a few taps. In this walkthrough, we are using the OnePlus 6T.

1. Head over to the Settings

Find the ‘About phone’ section. You may scroll down to find it, though some units have it at the top already.
