What you need to know about Android 11 and when to expect it

Just recently, Google dropped the first Android 11 developer preview. Android 10 has been official for just three months now and available on a limited number of devices. While Google, brand manufacturers all over, and operators are busy working on the release of the update to Android 10, we can already begin to speculate about Android 11.

Android 11 will integrate new features not present to Android 10. As always, you will have to wait for the final version of the software to actually experience the new features integrated into Android 11. In recent months there will surely be rumors that will allow us to get an idea in advance of Google's new Android update.

Google will send out beta versions to developers to test out first. The first has arrived in March for the past few years, so again, expect the initial beta version of Android 11 to come around the same time this year. After this, the next major Android 11 release event will be during Google I/O, when the software will also get its official launch.

For those waiting for the release date, you should know that Google has outlined the three developer previews and three Android 11 beta builds that it expects to release over the coming months. The official public release of Android 11 will almost certainly come in September for Google’s Pixel devices. 

If you own a phone made by Samsung, LG, Huawei, Nokia, Motorola, or any other manufacturer, you will have to wait until the company provides an updated schedule. This will come after September, but the dates will vary according to the manufacturer.

The Android 11 will launch with new and improved features to ensure your security, from expanded biometrics to secure ID storage.

  • BiometricPrompt now supports three authenticator types now, with different levels of granularity and is easier to integrate within app architecture.
  • The protection of security-critical components has been increased. New heap pointer tagging for catching memory issues.
  • Support for the secure storage and retrieval of ID documents, such as mobile driving licenses.
  • Scoped Storage
  • Airplane and Bluetooth mode.
  • Extended screenshots.

The new Android will include support for 5G network speeds and their capabilities. Android 11 will also feature a BlobstoreManager, which will allow apps to share data more securely.

Enhanced connectivity APIs will allow developers and users to better take advantage of 5Gs blistering speed improvements. These include a Dynamic Meteredness API – Allows for the checking of the connection, whether it is unmetered or not, and for adjusting the resolution and quality of their content accordingly.

Google says Android 11 we’ve added new processes, developer tools, and release milestones to minimize the impact of platform updates,”. APIs that improve call-screening application functionality, native Wi-Fi suggestions, native image decoding, camera bokeh modes as well as changes in MediaCodec which will reduce video latency to improve game-streaming experience or streaming of other media, are also expected.
