Android 11 release date and what we know about the upcoming OS upgrade



For months Android 11 lurked on the horizon, poised to be the 2020 Android update for the end of the year, but in mid-February a developer preview gave us our first glimpse at Google's upcoming operating system update

Now, we've got a good idea at some of the changes Google has in store for us. We'd expect the official reveal of Android 11 in mid-2020, at Google IO 2020 which will run May 12-14, before being released for Pixel devices around September, and then rolled out for other Android devices from late 2020 through well into 2021. The 2020 Android update is set to be called Android 11 – that’s not speculation, but fact, since Google has confirmed the name itself. This follows, because with Android 10 Google pledged to follow a numerical system of operating system organisation. That means while Android 9 was Android Pie, Android 10 wasn’t Android Quiche, and Android 11 won’t be Android Rhubarb and Custard (sadly) - but it will be packed with updates and, likely, a few long-awaited features.
We've already started hearing rumors and news surrounding the upcoming Android operating system. Here we’ll collect everything we know about Android 11.

Android 11 release date
Google tends to unveil some of the features of its newest operating system at Google IO in May, before releasing the OS for Pixel phones with an Android 11 release date of sometime in September – in 2019, for example, it debuted on the Pixel 4.

We know that Google IO 2020 will run from May 12-14 this year, and Google's keynote tends to happen on day 1 of the three day developers conference. That means we can expect the Android 11 launch date to be May 12, 2020.

After that, different smartphone brands will have their devices eligible for the update slowly over time. The OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro were the first non-Google smartphones which came with Android 10 in the box, but it could be a different company for Android 11.
