    Android 11: Xiaomi, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Smartphones to Get Update Soon

    After months of testing it in beta, Google has finally started to roll out the final version of Android 11 today. The release is currently rolling out for a select Pixel, OnePlus, Xiaomi, Oppo and Realme phones. Other Android partner brands will also start receiving the update soon.

    The final build of the Android 11 is currently available for Pixel 2 (review), Pixel 3, Pixel 3A, Pixel 4, and Pixel 4A phones.

    The shiny new coat of paint that is Android 11, is actually doing more than just roll out new features – most importantly, Android 11 is being released for more devices than just the Google Pixel phones, and third party OEMs OnePlus, Oppo, Realme and Xiaomi are part of the initial batch of Android 11 release around the world.

    With this in sight, here’s looking at all the phones that are set to get Android 11 before everyone else.

    OnePlus has announced that Android 11 will be released on OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro today. This is the first time that major, mainstream smartphones are getting the latest Android version on the same day as Google’s own Pixel phones.

    As a result, the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro will join the Google Pixel 2 and 2XL, Pixel 3 and 3XL, Pixel 3a and 3a XL, Pixel 4 and 4XL and Pixel 4a in being one of the first devices to get Android 11 on day one itself. The Android 11 update for OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro will be rolled out today in North America, Europe and India.

    Note: The Android 11-based OxygenOS update to be rolled out today is based on the stable Android 11 build, but is a part of the company's 'Open Beta' cycle that precedes the wider, official Android 11 rollout. The latter is scheduled to follow soon.
    While the exact date and timeline of Xiaomi’s rollout of Android 11 is slightly obscure, given that beta programmes for select phones running Android 11 and MIUI 12 were already active, a stable build rollout is expected soon. With Xiaomi, users can expect to get Android 11 first on the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro and the Poco F2 Pro (or Redmi K30 in select markets).

    Like OnePlus, Oppo also had an active Android 11 beta programme running on a select range of phones, all of which is slated to be released soon. Oppo is scheduled to unveil its new custom interface based on Android 11, dubbed ColorOS 7.2, next week, which in turn will bring the latest Android version to the Oppo Find X2, Find X2 Pro, Reno 3 and Reno 3 Pro. Users of these phones can expect the stable build to roll out next week.

    Realme is also expected to follow Oppo closely in rolling out the stable build of Android 11 very soon. The new Android version will be rolled out with Realme’s update interface version, Realme UI 2.0, and the Realme X50 Pro has been shortlisted as the device which will first get Android 11 from Realme’s portfolio.

    Apart from these OEMs, Samsung also had Android 11 beta programmes for its flagship devices, the Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra. However, a specific timeline of when would the updates be released. Nevertheless, users may optimistically expect to see Android 11 roll out on Samsung’s flagship phones before the end of 2020. Within that time, given Google’s new goal of rolling out Android updates more regularly, expect other OEMs and more phones to get the Android 11 update sooner than usual as well.
