EE is the largest mobile network operator in the UK and it offers several Android phones that may bag the upcoming Android 11 update. But before taking a look at the list of eligible devices, let’s first check out a few details surrounding Android 11 and its release.
Like most Android announcements for the past few years, Google was expected to reveal Android 11 at its Google I/O event. But the rapid spread of COVID-19 led to the company canceling its plans for the in-person event.
Instead, Google released the first Android 11 beta for the Pixel devices with a brief announcement on Reddit. OnePlus was the next vendor to follow suit and released the beta for its flagships. Soon after, OEMs such as Xiaomi, Oppo, and Realme also released the Android 11 beta for their flagship phones.
By the beginning of July, the Android 11 beta was already available on 13 devices from 7 vendors. But that’s not all, Tecno Mobile also joined these major OEMs and released the beta for the Tecno Pouvoir 4. This goes to show that Android vendors have begun taking OS updates a lot more seriously than a few years ago.
On that note, let’s now take a look at possible Android 11 eligible phones offered by EE in the UK.

Well, these are the phones from the EE network in the UK that may get the Android 11 update. Of course, this list is by no means an official confirmation from EE. Hence, there are chances that a device mentioned in the list may not get the update due to a reason not known at the time of writing.
Further, it’s also possible that a device that’s not listed here may bag the update. That being said, it’s also too early to provide a ETA for the arrival of the stable Android 11 update on any of the devices listed here.
Although, we can safely assume that the eligible Google Pixel devices will get the update first. To know when other vendors begin rolling out the update for their devices, you can check out our Android 11 update trackers for OEMs such as Xiaomi, Vivo, Huawei/Honor, OnePlus and Realme.
