Each year, Google releases new Android versions. Earlier, it named its versions with a delicacy but changed to numbering nomenclature since last year. This year’s upcoming Android 11 is more refined in terms of its design, privacy, and security-related features and more than its predecessor.
Google has stuck to its timeline released in January 2020 according to which it released four developer previews every month since February. In June 2020, it released its first-ever Beta version that was pushed to Google Pixel devices. Surprisingly, 13 smartphones from 7 vendors are a part of the Android 11 beta program this year and have already received their first beta update (while some are on the second). Android 11 is slated to launch in Q3 2020 with the most stakes on September release.
With that being said, OEMs will have to tweak the OS with their custom-made skin such as MIUI from Xiaomi, OxygenOS from OnePlus, OneUI from OnePlus and so on before releasing it to their devices. However, those smartphones that are carrier-branded such as T-Mobile locked phones require undergoing an additional layer of tweaking before it can be released to the locked phone in question and this delays the process.
