Ready for Android 11? Here’s when your phone will get the latest update!

A few phones are still waiting on their Android 11 update.


The stable version of Android 11 was released in September 2020 on Pixel phones. It wasn’t as revolutionary an update as Android 12 will be, but it still gave us new tools like Conversations View, chat bubbles, upgraded permissions, a power menu dashboard, and other useful improvements.

Android 11 took much longer to arrive on non-Pixel phones. On Samsung phones, most eligible devices have now received the One UI 3.0 update, which is based on Android 11; the same applies to most OnePlus phones and the OxygenOS 11 update.

In the 10+ months since Android 11 arrived, Samsung, OnePlus, OPPO, and Xiaomi have mostly finished updating their phones to the new OS — except for a few older phones. Other phone makers like Motorola, Nokia and LG have been much slower getting their eligible phones updated.

Below, you’ll find a broad overview of when to expect the Android 11 update on your phone, split up between OEMs. Note that update availability can vary from region to region.

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.

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
  • Pixel 4a 5G
  • Pixel 5

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.

The company has been on a tear lately, releasing the final version of One UI 3.0 (based on Android 11) to older devices like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy A02. It’s far ahead of its original Android 11 roadmap, where other OEMs remain behind schedule.

Below are the Samsung devices that have already received Android 11/ One UI 3.0 or One UI 3.1. Most have received a global release; if a device has only received a regional release, we’ll note it below.

  • Galaxy S10
  • Galaxy S10+
  • Galaxy S10e
  • Galaxy S10 Lite
  • Galaxy S20
  • Galaxy S20+
  • Galaxy S20 Ultra
  • Galaxy S20 FE
  • Galaxy S21
  • Galaxy S21+
  • Galaxy S21 Ultra
  • Galaxy Note 10 Lite
  • Galaxy Note 10
  • Galaxy Note 10+

  • Galaxy A90
  • Galaxy M01
  • Galaxy M11
  • Galaxy M21
  • Galaxy M30s
  • Galaxy M31 / M31s
  • Galaxy M40

As of mid-July, these are the Samsung phones still scheduled to receive a global Android 11 release, but haven’t yet:

  • Galaxy A10 / A10s (August 2021)
  • Galaxy A20 / A20s (August 2021)
  • Galaxy A30 (July 2021)
  • Galaxy A30S (August 2021)

Unfortunately, the Galaxy S9 will not run Android 11. Aside from the Galaxy A series, Samsung doesn’t have many phones left to cross off its list, and can soon move on fully to One UI 4 development.

When will my OnePlus phone get Android 11?


What started as a small enthusiast brand transformed into a mainstream player in the U.S. smartphone space. OnePlus kicks out some of the best Android phones. Unfortunately, the brand has had some difficulties with its Android 11 updates, falling behind schedule on its releases and sometimes having to walk back software updates.

First, OnePlus had issues with the OxygenOS 11 rollout on the Nord. Then, the OnePlus 7 and 7T update had some missing features and issues with battery drain and overheating. But thankfully, many of those issues have now been resolved.

Here are the OnePlus devices that now have a stable build of Android 11/ OxygenOS 11:

  • OnePlus 9
  • OnePlus 9 Pro
  • OnePlus 9R
  • OnePlus 8T
  • OnePlus 8 Pro
  • OnePlus 8
  • OnePlus Nord
  • OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition
  • OnePlus 7T Pro
  • OnePlus 7T
  • OnePlus 7 Pro 5G
  • OnePlus 7 Pro
  • OnePlus 7

Currently, these devices below are slated to receive Android 11 but have only received a beta version as of mid-July:

  • OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition
  • OnePlus 6T
  • OnePlus 6

While the OnePlus 6 and 6T received an Android 11 beta in early July — one month ahead of schedule — owners of these phones likely won’t see an official release of Android 11 for some time. Other OnePlus Android 11 betas took a couple of months, and the company has said it likely won’t come out until after the launch of Android 12 in September.

We know that the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 won’t receive Android 11. Future OnePlus phones will get three or more years of updates thanks to the new OnePlus/ OPPO merger, but older OnePlus phones will remain stuck with Android 10.

When will my Xiaomi phone get Android 11?


Xiaomi is one of the world’s largest phone manufacturers, and the brand has turned its attention to Western markets in the last two years. Xiaomi sells phones from $100 all the way to $1,200, and it has made a name for itself as the go-to player for value.

Many Xiaomi, Redmi, and POCO phones have already received the MIUI 12.5 Android 11 update in China; our MIUI hub link will give a detailed description of every model that has or will already receive it in different regions.

Below, we’ll focus on Xiaomi phones with global distribution that have received or will receive the MIUI 12.5 Android 11 update. Some have had Android 11 for months; others have just received it, or will reportedly receive it in July 2021. Here are the international Xiaomi phones that we can confirm have Android 11 available, or will have it very soon:

  • Xiaomi Mi 11
  • Xiaomi Mi 10T
  • Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro
  • Xiaomi Mi 10
  • Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro
  • Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G
  • Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite

  • Redmi Note 9
  • Redmi Note 8 Pro
  • Redmi 9
  • POCO F2 Pro

When will my OPPO phone get Android 11?


OPPO is also turning its attention to Western markets. 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.

After introducing the ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 in closed beta for the Find X2 series, the company has finally started rolling out the stable update to owners of the device.

We have a tentative timeline for when OPPO phones will get the ColorOS 11 beta based on Android 11. These are the OPPO devices that have already received the update to ColorOS 11:

  • A94 5G
  • A93 5G
  • A74 / A74 5G
  • A54 5G
  • Find X2 / X2 Pro
  • Find X3 Pro
  • Ace2

  • 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, there’s no indication of when the stable build will be made available.

We don’t know how many Realme phones are scheduled to update 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 X7 Pro / X7 Pro Ultra
  • Realme X3
  • Realme X2 Pro
  • Realme X2
  • Realme XT

  • Realme Q3 5G / Q3 Pro
  • Realme Q3i 5G
  • Realme GT Neo
  • Realme V13 5G
  • Realme C25

When will my Huawei phone get Android 11?


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

Huawei’s Android 11 update took the form of EMUI 11, and the company shared a roadmap for what devices will receive this update in each territory. The list is surprisingly long, with even some tablets getting in on the Android 11 action; the link shows the delivery status for every eligible phone in each Huawei territory.

As of July 2021, the vast majority of Huawei phones have had EMUI 11 “delivered to all users,” with just a few phone updates still “pushing in batches” in specific territories. Folks in West Europe may still be waiting on the update for the Huawei P40 Pro Plus, but every eligible phone in India, Canada, Japan, and Northeast Europe has received the available updates.

When will my Motorola phone get Android 11?


The past year was an exciting one for Motorola. The company is still churning out high-quality budget devices, and alongside those, we see 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.

Motorola revealed its eligible Android 11 phones in December, but gave no indication of when they would receive the updates. Unsurprisingly, only a handful of phones have received confirmed Android 11 updates since then. You can see the list below:

  • Moto One Hyper
  • Moto G Fast
  • Moto G Pro
  • Moto G Stylus
  • Moto G8
  • Moto G8 Power
  • Motorola Razr 5G

Now we’ll show the longer list of every Motorola phone still expected to receive Android 11; unfortunately, we have no word on when these phones will receive the update, as Motorola hasn’t been open about its schedule.

  • Motorola Edge+
  • Motorola Edge
  • Moto G Fast
  • Moto G 5G / 5G Plus
  • Moto G Pro
  • Motorola One Fusion / Fusion+
  • Motorola One Zoom
  • Motorola One Action
  • Motorola One Macro
  • Motorola One 5G
  • Moto G8 Plus
  • Moto G10
  • Moto G40 Fusion
  • Moto G50
  • Moto G60
  • Moto G100
  • Moto G9
  • Moto G9 Play
  • Moto G9 Plus
  • Moto G9 Power
  • Lenovo K12 Note

For every phone besides the Edge+ and RAZR, Android 11 is the one and only software update they’ll receive. Combine that with the slow update schedule, and Motorola isn’t making a great case for their phones’ longevity.

When will my LG phone get Android 11?


Now that we know that LG is leaving the smartphone business behind, it’s unsurprising that its phone updates have been even slower than usual. It has released a plan for which phones will receive Android 11, 12, and 13, plus an Android 11 release schedule; we can only hope LG lives up to this plan.

So far, only the LG Velvet 5G and LG V60 ThinQ have received Android 11 updates. As for the rest, most reportedly will take several months at least to receive a proper update. The German LG site estimates that the LG G8X will get Android 11 in Q3 2021 and the LG Wing and a few budget phones in Q4 — but we don’t know about other LG phones. Below is the list of every LG phone with a pending Android 11 update:

  • LG Wing
  • LG G8X
  • LG Velvet 4G
  • LG G8S
  • LG V50S
  • LG V50
  • LG Q31
  • LG Q51
  • LG Q52
  • LG Q61
  • LG Q70
  • LG Q92
  • LG Q9 One

When will my Nokia phone get Android 11?


In October, Nokia announced its Android 11 update schedule, with the first slate of devices set to receive the update by the end of 2020. Nokia later pushed out a revised roadmap that pushed out the updates for a few older Nokia phones. Unfortunately, many Nokia phones missed their target Q2 2021 update window.

Here are the Nokia phones that have already received Android 11:

  • Nokia 8.3 5G
  • Nokia 3.2
  • Nokia 2.3
  • Nokia 4.2
  • Nokia 8.1
  • Nokia 2.2

Now, here are the Nokia phones still eligible for Android 11 updates, along with Nokia’s estimates for when these phones will get them.

Nokia Android 11 Q2 2021 (now late)

  • Nokia 3.4
  • Nokia 5.3
  • Nokia 1.3
  • Nokia 5.4
  • Nokia 1.4
  • Nokia 1 Plus
  • Nokia 2.4

Nokia Android 11 Q3 2021

  • Nokia 6.2
  • Nokia 7.2
  • Nokia 9 Pureview

Nokia’s devices fall under the Android One initiative designed for fast OS releases for third-party phones. But Nokia has failed to push out timely updates, effectively killing the promise of Android One. With Nokia officially delaying some phones’ update schedules and unofficially missing its deadlines for several others, it’s clear that the company is having trouble adapting Google’s software across so many of its handsets.
