  • Early builds of Android 13-based Lineage OS 20 have been released.
  • The custom ROM was created for the Galaxy S7, S8, and Note 8.
  • The ROM allows owners of these older devices to enjoy many of the improvements found in Android 13.

Android 13 has been rolling out slowly to a handful of devices over the last few weeks. Although the Android 13 beta is making its way to newer Samsung phones, many of the company’s older phones will be left out of the update. However, a new custom ROM could bring some hope to Galaxy S7, S8, and Note 8 users wanting to hop onto the Android 13 train.

If you’re still holding on to your Galaxy S7, S8, or Note 8 phone, developer Ivan_Meler has created early builds of Lineage OS 20 based on Android 13 for these phone models. According to XDA Developers, the recently released ROM is surprisingly stable and key functionalities such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, fingerprint reader, and more all seem to be working fine.
