Quick Answer: Android 11 was officially released on September 8, 2020.

Back in 2020, Google typically showcased its latest Android operating system iteration at Google I/O, a conference designed for developers with a keen interest in all things Google.

However, that year was quite different. The outbreak of the novel coronavirus led to the cancellation of all in-person conferences for an extended period.

As a consequence, all product announcements were delayed, leaving many in suspense about when Google would release the annual update to its mobile operating system, Android.

At that time, the wait wasn’t too long—Android 11 was already in Developer Preview.

So, when did Android 11 release?

So, when will Android 11 release?

Short answer: September 8, 2020

Google had announced an online event for 11 am EST on June 3, 2020, to unveil Android 11 to the world. This was to be followed by the first beta version of Android 11.

The final build, if following the usual release schedule, was then expected to be released at some point in Q3 of 2020.

Of course, there were potential delays due to the intricacies of managing a fully-remote workplace amid the pandemic. However, that was the plan at the time.

The June 3 event was postponed, and the rescheduled date was unknown at that time.

The Pixel range was the first to receive Android 11, with other manufacturers following suit. In 2020, OnePlus was the first third-party manufacturer to update to Android 10.

Did that remain the same for the Android 11 update, or did another company claim the second spot?
