Google unveils Android 11, to begin rollout of the OS for Pixel phones

Google, the renowned technology giant, has reportedly unveiled the new Android 11 OS. This new version is not intended to offer an overhaul of the OS (operating system) but instead, will give users much simpler ways to manage conversations, privacy, connected devices, and much more.

One of the more important additions this new update brings is an entirely dedicated space solely for conversations. The new Android version also brings new privacy-focused changes. Google has already launched the new android version for Pixel 2 and the other models after that. Additionally, soon Android 11 would also be available for OnePlus, Realme, Xiaomi, and Oppo devices.  

The list of devices which would have Android 11 initially, includes Google’s Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3, Pixel 3 XL, Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, and Pixel 4 XL. However, Chinese smartphone company, OnePlus has also confirmed that its new OnePlus 8 Pro and OnePlus 8 devices would also be getting Android 11 updates via an open beta of its OxygenOS 11 across Europe, India, and North America.

Likewise, Oppo would initially launch Android 11 open beta for its Oppo Reno 3 and Oppo Find X2 series. Meanwhile, Realme would also be launching Android 11 Preview for its Realme X50 Pro. Additionally, Xiaomi would bring the new OS for its Mi 10 Pro and Mi 10 devices.

Android 11 is specially developed to highlight what is more important in a phone and how it can be managed easily. Essenntially, rather than providing an array of interface-level changes, this new operating system would bring a number of new features that would make it easier for the users to manage their phone.

As per reliable reports, Google expects that other handset manufacturers, apart from the initial OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, and Xiaomi, would bring the Android 11 OS to their smartphones in coming months.
