(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.

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 and it will come as part of One UI 3.0. Some devices have been detailed on a timeline for Egypt (via TizenHelp), we suspect it will be a similar global picture.

All the following devices quality for updates:
