Android 11 has been in the works for a long time - as we’ve had developer previews - 4 to be exact, and then we moved onto the beta versions, with the final Beta 3 coming a month or so ago. Here’s the complete outline of the progress of Android 11 if you’re interested. Anyways, after months of development and beta programmes, we finally have the Android 11 released today officially.
Google officially announced Android 11 today, as it’s going to come to select phones for the time being. Surprisingly enough, Pixel devices won’t be the lone receivers of the new AndroidOS update - several other manufacturers have been supported this year to receive Android 11 on the first day of release too. OnePlus has announced Android 11 along with the complete open beta of OxygenOS 11 to go along with it for the 8 series. Oppo has announced the X2 and Reno 3 to be the recipients of the new update, and even Realme has gotten a piece of the cake, with the X50 Pro getting Android 11 as well. Xiaomi has also announced the update for the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro.
Android 11 doesn’t seem to be focusing on bringing a complete overhaul of the design interface - as the looks won’t change as much as they did with the Android 10 jump. However, little functions and features have been added to make the overall user experience much better than before.
Even though other phones have gotten the update too, Pixel phones will receive special exclusive features for themselves that no other phone manufacturer will get with Android 11. Check these features out here.
