Android 11 download release for my phone: The big list

When will my phone get the update to Android 11? This is an iteration of a question we get every time Google makes a major product release, especially when it comes to a new numbered version of their mobile OS. This year, the biggest update to Android devices will be delivered to a wide variety of devices – maybe more than any previous major update to Android due to the ease with which Google’s made updating devices from Android 10 to 11.

What phone do I have?

If you have an Android device, finding the model name should be relatively straightforward. You’ll need to open Settings, scroll down to “About Phone” and tap. Up top you should see the name of your phone, like “Galaxy Note9” or “Pixel 3a XL.” Generally the brand of your phone will be printed on the back of the hardware if it’s not already evident what you’re holding.

It’s possible your smartphone will get an Android 11 software update in the future even if it’s not been promised by Google and/or your device’s hardware manufacturer.

How do I download Android 11?

Open your phone or tablet’s Settings. From there, the instructions are different for each phone, but they’ll basically be something to the tune of : Settings – System – Advanced – System Update. Samsung phones make this path even easier, via: Settings – System Updates.

If you do not see a software update available, you could always check to see whether your device could gain access to a Beta build. If you own a OnePlus 8 or OnePlus 8 Pro, you could head over to the OnePlus Beta program page and see what you make of it. If you have a Samsung phone, you’ll need to be a part of a Developer Beta program to gain access to software builds early, or check the One UI Beta program page at Samsung.
