Google has finally unleashed the Android 11 Beta 1 on Google Pixel devices and a handful of other devices. Google is expected to launch the Android 11 officially in Q3 2020 where the month of September seems more logical. This is when Huawei will pick up the Android 11 source code and tweak it to roll out its custom-made EMUI 11 or MagicUI 4.0 to eligible devices. Talking about eligible devices, Huawei P Smart S is eligible to get EMUI 11 too so here’s the status update regarding the same.

It is currently running on Android 10 out-of-the-box and is in tow to get Android 11 based EMUI 11 once the former is officially launched and the latter is rolled out to eligible devices.
