Android 11 Overview
As per the timeline, Google launched its Android 11 as a developer preview back in February on Pixel devices. It has planned to launch a developer preview each month till May 2020 followed by 3 beta releases scheduled to arrive from June 2020 till August 2020. After everything is said and done, the final stable version of Android 11 will make its way in the Q3 2020 since the exact date isn’t available yet.
Google decided to ditch the alphabetical nomenclature last year when it launched Android Q as Android 10 where ‘Q’ would have been anything sweet and delicious. Thus, Android R became Android 11. Once Android 11 is released, Xiaomi will work on it to tweak it as per its MIUI 12 and finally rolled out an Android 11 flavored version of it in December according to a report.
