(Pocket-lint) - The latest version of Android is Android 11. Having dropped the sweet names for something that's more simplistic (it was going to be Red Velvet Cake), Google released Android 11 on 8 September, following a period in beta.

You can take a look at what the Android 11 update brings right here.

To find out when, specifically, you will get the update and be able to try all the new features yourself, keep reading.

Android 11 for Pixel devices

The Android 11 public beta started on 11 June, but was released to the public on 8 September, which is when the update is made available to Pixel devices. Note that the original Pixel has been excluded from this list, so that's reached the end of its life.

The following devices can now be updated to Android 11 from 8 September:

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

The Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G are expected to launch with Android 11 out of the box later in the year.

Android 11 for other Android devices

Now that Google has pushed the final version of Android 11, the race is on for manufacturers to get that on their devices as soon as they can. Some companies have confirmed updates are coming, some - like Xiaomi, Oppo, OnePlus and Realme - were on the beta programme and Google has said they will have Android 11 on select devices from day 1.

The Android update process can take a long time. Manufacturers target flagship devices first and the roll-out across all devices is expected to take many months, if not years.

Here's everything we know about updates to Android 11, and we're keeping track of new information as it becomes known. If a brand isn't onthe list, it's because that brand has not said anything about updates so far.

Asus Android 11 update

Asus isn't the fastest when it comes to updates, but there has been some progress.

  • Asus Zenfone 6 - beta 15 September 2020

Nokia Android 11 update

Nokia's record with updates is good. The company uses Android One on most of its devices and successfully updated devices Android 10 before anyone else.

Nokia's two OS version promise should mean that anything launched on Android 9 Pie should be eligible for Android 11. The company has confirmed the following timeline:

  • Nokia 8.3 5G - Q4 2020
  • Nokia 8.1 - Q4 2020
  • Nokia 5.3 - Q4 2020

OxygenOS 11 will include a UI update, always-on display and an improved dark mode, along with Android 11 features and that roll-out has started.

These are the devices we expect to get the update include:

  • Realme X50 Pro - beta 8 September 2020, final November 2020

Samsung Android 11 update

Samsung doesn't feel the need to update rapidly and in the past has been slow - but it does have a huge number of phones, many of which would, technically, be eligible, because Samsung offers 2 years of updates, while Samsung has also committed to 3 years of updates on some devices. The first device to get Android 11 is confirmed to be the Samsung Galaxy S20 series, which Samsung says will arrive "later this year", i.e., in 2020.

Xiaomi Android 11 update

Xiaomi looks as though it's trying to fill Huawei's shoes globally and it was part of the Android 11 beta - suggesting that we'll be getting Android 11 on some phones pretty quickly.

Much might depend on the timeline of MIUI 12, however. Xiaomi has already come forward and said that Android 11 is ready for the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, but both were beta devices.

  • Xiaomi Mi 10 - from 10 September (global version)
  • Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro - from 10 September (global version)

  • Mi 10 Youth Edition (Lite Zoom)
  • Mi CC 9 Pro
  • Mi Note 10
  • Mi Note 10 Pro
  • Mi Note 10 Lite
  • Mi 10 Lite 5G
