Google has been releasing new Android versions every year for a while now. Each new Android version is refined over the previous one. Previously, most Android updates were geared towards revamping the design and feel of the OS.
However, with the past couple of versions, Google has begun focusing on the fundamentals to deliver an enhanced user experience on Android. With that in mind, Google announced Android 11 last month. The first Android 11 beta build was made available for Pixel phones.
And just a few days ago, we reported that Android 11 is now available on 13 devices from 7 different vendors. This list seems to be growing as Tecno Mobile has also released the Android 11 Developer Preview for the Tecno Pouvoir 4.
That said, Android updates usually take time to make their way to carrier-branded phones. This is because once an OEM releases an update, the carrier also conducts its own testing before seeding an update to users. As a result, the updates are usually delayed for weeks or possibly months.
Nonetheless, even though the updates are late, they are pushed eventually to eligible devices. Most vendors release at least two major Android updates for their smartphones. There are some exceptions such as OnePlus that has been releasing 3 major updates for its phones.
With all this information and by judging past trends, we’ve compiled a list of T-Mobile-branded phones that might be eligible for the Android 11 update. Of course, this information is by no means official and things can change at any time.
T-Mobile Android 11 update: Eligible devices
Since most smartphone companies no longer rely on carriers to market their devices, this isn’t a long list. But there are a few major smartphones on the list that could be getting the update. So without any further ado, let’s check out the list of eligible devices:
– Google Pixel 4 (Android 11 beta already available)
– Google Pixel 4 XL (Android 11 beta already available)
– Google Pixel 3a (Android 11 beta already available)
– Google Pixel 3a XL (Android 11 beta already available)
– Samsung Galaxy S20 5G
– Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G
– Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G
– Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G
– Samsung Galaxy Note 10
– Samsung Galaxy S10 series
– Samsung Galaxy A71 5G
– Samsung Galaxy A51
– Samsung Galaxy A21
– Samsung Galaxy A10e
– OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren
– OnePlus 7 Pro
– OnePlus 7T
– OnePlus 6T
– LG G8 ThinQ
– LG V60 ThinQ
– LG Stylo 6
These are the devices that are presumed to be getting the latest Android version. Unfortunately, we do not have a definitive timeline for the release of Android 11 on these phones. Further, there are chances that a device not mentioned here might also receive the update.
What can be said for sure is that Android 11 will indeed begin rolling out this year itself for some of the T-Mobile-branded phones mentioned in the list. But we will have to wait a while for more official updates from the carrier on the matter.
