It looks like a Google representative has revealed the Android 11 launch date.The update is apparently launching on September 8.This is roughly in line with the Android 10 schedule last year.
Android 11 beta versions have been available for a while now, giving users a taste of the next Android update. We usually have a few months to wait until the stable version hits devices, and now it looks like Google may have accidentally given us the final launch date.
According to a video posted from Google’s Smart Home Summit (h/t: PhoneArena), Android 11 will launch on September 8. Skip to the 18 minute mark in the video below to get a look at the apparent confirmation, or check the image up top.
The Android 10 update launched on September 3 2019, so the September 8 date is clearly in a similar time frame. Going back even further, Android 9 Pie launched on August 6 2018.
Nevertheless, one thing you can count on is that this update won’t hit a ton of smartphones at once. Generally speaking, the update first comes to Google Pixel phones, with other devices waiting a while. The Essential Phone received a day one Android 9 and Android 10 update, but it won’t be getting a stable Android 11 update though.
We’ve contacted Google for more clarification regarding this apparent launch date and will update the article accordingly when/if they get back to us.
