Earlier this week, Google launched Android 13 during its I/O developer conference and released the Android 13 Beta2 beta version for Pixels. A number of Android device manufacturers have also announced their Android 13 betas, or developer previews. HMD Global has now announced that you can now test it out with the Nokia X20. It’s worth noting that HMD is calling this a developer preview, not a beta, so the new version may leave a lot to be desired.
If you want to try it too, you can now go through the “My Device” app on the Nokia X20, find the support interface on the bottom banner, and then find the Android 13 developer preview down. You can start the application once you have passed the IMEI registration for Android 13 DP. After a successful registration and application, Nokia will immediately release the latest version on the internet.
After the application has been approved, you can manually verify the update. You will receive it in approximately 20 minutes. Specifically, you can go to “Settings > About Phone > System Update” to check.
You can use the pre-installed Android 13 DP version to send feedback about any issues you encounter. You can request to rollback to Android 12 via My Devices.

Android 13 includes the all-new Google Wallet. It supports boarding and concerts as well as payments. Later this year, a “Security and Privacy Settings” page will be added. This location stores all data privacy information. It is intended to encourage Android users address security concerns. Android 13 allows users to change the system language per app. This is also helpful for multilingual users who rely on different languages in different situations.
