The Android Developers site says that later releases of Android P will be offered using this method.

If your Nexus phone has been dying on you, perhaps it's time to rest the device and get a new one. In order to use the Google Lens in an Android smartphone, all you need to do is to choose a picture from the Google Photos app. For security, Google plans a consistent UI for fingerprint authentication across apps and devices.

The Pixel C launched around the same time and should have the same update policies, but it isn't listed on Google's update page.

Pixel update is available only on given 4 handsets: The Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and the Pixel 2 XL. The service is pretty awesome but will become much more powerful as more users take advantage of it. If you're looking to grab the first build of the Android P dev preview you can do so by hitting the button below. While backing up data, Android now does the encryption on the client device. In addition, the Pixel C tablet will also stay put on Android 8.1 Oreo. It is not supported on the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P, the two phones that are also Google phones.

Android P developer preview is now out from Google, and the system images are available for Pixel devices. If you like communicating on your phone with others, this is a big deal.

Many tech enthusiasts have reached to Google regarding this, and they have officially confirmed that they are dropping support for these devices and they won't get new updates by now. Speaking of which, the app drawer also looks different, although I'm not sure if this is due to Android P being as new as it is or not. But for now, users without a Pixel 1, 1XL, 2, or 2XL are out of luck. However, if you want to grab the Pixel Launcher APK to see how it looks for yourself, you can download it from the APK Mirror link here.

All the Nexus range of devices comes with only two years guarantee of major version updates.

This isn't the end of the line for the Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P. However the company changed those plans back in 2017.

Google initially said it planned to stop security updates for the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X in September, 2018.
