Google announced the first Android 11 beta a month ago and since then, interested individuals are wondering when the stable update will arrive on their devices. The announcement was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But it seems that Google is on track to release the update by the end of August or early September.
Further, not only is the Android 11 beta available on Google’s Pixel lineup, but it has also been pushed to many other smartphones. Towards the beginning of the month, the beta was available on 13 devices from 7 vendors. Of course, out of these, OnePlus was the first to push the update for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro.
Another unexpected device to join the Android 11 beta party was the Tecno Pouvoir 4. Thus, it appears that OEMs have become more serious about providing quick Android updates for their devices.
But long-time Android users might know already that updates aren’t entirely dependant on OEMs. This is especially true for carrier-branded phones. Carriers such as AT&T conduct their own testing and add extra carrier-related updates for devices.
Therefore, such phones often receive updates later than their unlocked counterparts. On that note, AT&T is one of the leading carriers in the US. However, it does not carry many Android smartphones that might bag the Android 11 update.
AT&T Android 11 update: Eligible devices
Most OEMs release at least 2 to 3 major Android updates for their devices. Further, this update cycle has now been going on for a few years. Therefore, by taking past trends into account, we’ve compiled a list of AT&T-branded phones that might receive Android 11.
These are the AT&T-branded smartphones that may receive the Android 11 update. Of course, this isn’t an official confirmation of any sorts. Therefore, it’s likely that a smartphone mentioned on the list might not get the update for some reason.
Moreover, there are chances of a device receiving it even though it may not be listed here. It’s also too early to provide details about the release date for Android 11 for any of these smartphones.
AT&T, like most other carriers, pushes new system updates within a month after it arrives on unlocked units. There are some exceptions to this. However, users with AT&T-branded devices that are eligible for the update shouldn’t have to wait too long.
Carrier’s such as T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint also have several smartphones that may receive the Android 11 update. We have even listed possible Android 11 eligible devices from OEMs such as Xiaomi, Vivo, Huawei/Honor, OnePlus, and Realme.
