Android 11 is here for the Pixels and select OnePlus phones.

The stable version of Android 11 is here, and while it isn't the most revolutionary update we've ever seen, there are plenty of reasons to get excited about it. Whether you're looking forward to the new conversation notifications, chat bubbles for messaging apps, or the upgraded permission handling, it may be a while before you can actually start messing around with all of these software goodies.

The update is now live for the Pixels and select OnePlus phones, with Xiaomi, OPPO, and Realme introducing closed betas. OnePlus is currently rolling out the stable release of OxygenOS 11 based on Android 11 to the OnePlus 8 series, with the manufacturer set to roll out the update to older phones later in the year. We've rounded up all of the current info to help give you a better idea as to when Android 11 will arrive on your device.

The timelines change based on manufacturer and region, but the list below should give you a broad overview of which phones will receive the Android 11 update, and when the stable build will be available for your phone.

When will my Google Pixel phone get Android 11?

The phrase "fast Android updates" is usually an oxymoron, but Google's lineup of Pixel phones is the exception to that rule. Whenever a new update or security patch is released, Pixels are the first-in-line for that software — making this one of the biggest benefits of owning a Pixel in the first place.

The Android 11 stable update is now available to download on all Pixels starting with the Pixel 2 series. Here's the full list:

  • Pixel 2
  • Pixel 2 XL
  • Pixel 3
  • Pixel 3 XL
  • Pixel 3a
  • Pixel 3a XL
  • Pixel 4
  • Pixel 4 XL
  • Pixel 4a

Google is also launching the Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 on September 30, but we expect those two phones to ship with Android 11 out of the box.

When will my Samsung phone get Android 11?

Samsung used to be one of those manufacturers that you couldn't rely on for good software support, but within the last year, it's improved significantly. Samsung announced that it's now committed to three years of major OS updates for all of its flagship phones, starting with the Galaxy S10 series and going forward.

Given that, we can look forward to all of the following phones to get an Android 11 update:

  • Galaxy S10
  • Galaxy S10+
  • Galaxy S10e
  • Galaxy S10 Lite
  • Galaxy S20
  • Galaxy S20+
  • Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • Galaxy Note 10
  • Galaxy Note 10+
  • Galaxy Note 20
  • Galaxy Note 20 Ultra

The Galaxy S9 series should be able to run Android 11, but with no guarantee from Samsung, we wouldn't hold our breath for it.

Samsung is currently rolling out the One UI 3.0 public beta based on Android 11 in the U.S. and Korea for the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 series, giving select Galaxy owners the ability to try out the latest version of Android.

As for the speed at which Samsung will roll out Android 11 to its phones, we're anticipating the update to drop within a few months of the initial launch. Google introduced Android 10 on September 3, 2019. The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S9 got the update in December and January, and it is likely we'll see a similar timeline this year with Android 11.

When will my OnePlus phone get Android 11?

What started out as a small enthusiast brand has transformed itself into a mainstream player in the U.S. smartphone space. OnePlus kicks out some of the best Android phones, and thankfully, it's quite good when it comes to updating them to new software builds.

OnePlus is rolling out the Android 11 stable update to the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro. There's a new visual layout in OxygenOS 11, along with a host of exciting features.

OnePlus is now committing to delivering the OxygenOS 11 update to the OnePlus 7T, 7, Nord, 7 Pro, 6, and 6T in the coming months. The OnePlus 8T is the manufacturer's latest phone, and it comes with Android 11 out of the box.

Xiaomi is currently running a closed Android 11 beta for the Mi 10 and the Mi 10 Pro. The Android 11 beta build is based on MIUI 12, but as of this writing, it is not stable enough for use as a daily driver.

Based on a post that showed up on Xiaomi's MIUI community forums, the Android 11 update will be going out to 30 models across Xiaomi, POCO, and Redmi product lines. More phones will be added to the list, but for now, these are the Xiaomi phones that will be updated to Android 11:

When will my OPPO phone get Android 11?

OPPO is also turning its attention to Western markets, and the Chinese manufacturer made a lot of changes to its ColorOS interface over the last 12 months, making it more palatable to a global audience.

OPPO has introduced ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 in closed beta for the Find X2 series and the Reno 3 Pro series, with a stable update slated to arrive before the end of the year.

We have a tentative timeline for when OPPO phones will get the ColorOS 11 beta based on Android 11. A stable update should follow a few weeks thereafter:

  • From 14 September: Find X2, Find X2 Pro, Find X2 Pro Automobili Lamborghini Edition
  • From 30 September: Reno 3 4G, Reno 3 Pro 4G, F17 Pro
  • From October: Reno 4 Pro 5G

  • From December: Reno 4 4G, F11, F11 Pro, F11 Pro Avengers Edition, A9, A92, A72, A52
  • From Q1 2021: Reno 10x Zoom, Reno 2, Reno 2F, Reno 2Z, Reno 3 Pro 5G, A91, F15
  • From Q2 2021: Reno, Reno Z, A5 2020, A9 2020

When will my Realme phone get Android 11?

Realme is also doing a closed Android 11 beta based on Realme UI 2.0 for the X50 Pro. Realme UI 2.0 comes with a host of new features, but at this moment the closed beta is limited to just 100 members and we don't have a timeline for when a public build will be available.

We don't know how many Realme phones will be updated to Android 11, but most devices released in the last 18 months should qualify for the update. Here's the list:

  • Realme X50 Pro 5G
  • Realme X50 Pro
  • Realme X50
  • Realme X3
  • Realme X2 Pro
  • Realme X2
  • Realme XT
  • Realme X
  • Realme 7 Pro
  • Realme 7
  • Realme 6 Pro
  • Realme 6
  • Realme 6i
  • Realme 6S
  • Realme 5
  • Realme 5 Pro
  • Realme 5i
  • Realme 5s
  • Realme 3 Pro
  • Realme 3
  • Realme Narzo 10
  • Realme Narzo 10A

When will my Huawei phone get Android 11?

Although Huawei phones aren't very common/popular in the United States, the manufacturer gets a lot of attention in other parts of the world.

Huawei's Android 11 update will take the form of EMUI 11, and while we don't know much about the company's plans for it quite yet, that'll be changing soon. The Huawei Developer Conference is taking place between September 10-12, and during those days, Huawei will talk more about EMUI 11 and what we can expect from it.

There are a lot of Huawei phones we expect to get Android 11/EMUI 11, including:

  • Huawei P40 series
  • Huawei P30 series
  • Huawei Mate 30 series
  • Huawei Mate 20 series
  • Huawei Mate X/Xs

In regards to how fast those updates will be pushed out, you'll likely have to wait a few months. The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro received Android 10 in mid-November, shortly followed by the Mate 20 series.

When will my Motorola phone get Android 11?

This past year has been an exciting one for Motorola. The company is still churning out high-quality budget devices, and alongside those, we're seeing Moto's return to the flagship space. However, it's still straggling behind in an area that's been a pain point for years — software updates.

Taking a look at all of the Motorola phones we expect to get an Android 11 update, the list is as follows:

  • Motorola Edge+
  • Motorola Edge
  • Motorola RAZR
  • Moto G Stylus
  • Moto G Power
  • Moto G Fast
  • Motorola One Fusion+
  • Motorola One Hyper

That's a solid list at first glance, but it comes with a big caveat. For every phone but the Edge+ and RAZR, Android 11 is the one and only software update they'll receive. There's also the fact that Motorola took its time with the Android 10 update, with the platform version not coming to the Moto G7 until May 11, 2020.

When will my LG phone get Android 11?

Keeping with the theme of manufacturers that often drop the ball for software updates, we have LG. With no update roadmap in place, here are the devices we think will get Android 11:

  • LG Velvet
  • LG G8
  • LG G8X
  • LG V60
  • LG V50
  • LG V50S

Android 10 was made available for the LG G8 in December 2019, with the LG V50 starting its Android 10 update in February 2020. We don't consider that to be a fast turnaround time, but it is better than what we usually see from LG.

Our fingers are crossed that LG gets even faster with rolling out Android 11, but we'll have to wait and see if that pans out.

When will my Nokia phone get Android 11?

Nokia has announced its Android 11 update schedule, with the first slate of devices set to receive the update by the end of 2020. While Nokia's devices fall under the Android One initiative, phones like the Nokia 7.2 and Nokia 9 PureView won't get the Android 11 update until Q2 2021.
