How to Check When and Whether Android 11 is Available on Cellphones
Geekers -  After months of beta testing, Android 11 is finally here. The new mobile operating system isn't always as innovative as some of the previous updates, but it still brings a number of new privacy features, as well as some visual changes that should make accessing things like smart home devices a lot easier. So how do you check the availability of Android 11 on your cellphone?

Of course, you may be wondering when exactly your device will get Android 11. The good news is that Android 11 is coming to more devices, faster than ever. The bad news is that only Pixel phones are getting stable releases on day one, while other phones are getting betas. Thankfully, the fact that many phones have beta means they'll likely be getting a stable release soon.

We've compiled a list of all the confirmed phones to get the update and check out Android 11, and others we expect to get the update eventually.

Android 11 on Asus phones

Asus has joined the Android 11 beta program, however, currently there is only one eligible device – the Asus Zenfone 6. However, more devices are likely to join the beta as time goes on.

Google Pixels? Top priority from the start

As you'd expect, Google Pixel phones are the first to get Android 11 – but not all Pixel devices will get the update. The original Pixel and Pixel XL won't get any updates other than Android 10.

   * Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL

Android 11 on LG phones

LG hasn't announced any information regarding the update for Android 11, and in general, the company has been a bit slow in adopting the latest Android versions. Still, we expect most of LG's recent phones to get the update eventually, including the LG Velvet, V60, V50, G8, and G8X. We'll have to wait and see how long it takes for this phone to get the update, but maybe a few months at least.

Android 11 on Motorola phones

Motorola hasn't announced when and if any of its devices will get the update to Android 11 – but we're expecting at least some will at some point. Some of the possible devices receiving the update include Motorola Edge, Edge + , Moto G Fast, Moto G Power, and Motorola Razr.

Android 11 on Nokia phones

The phones we expect to get the update include the Nokia 9 Pureview, Nokia 8.3, Nokia 8.1, Nokia 7.2, Nokia 6.2, Nokia 5.3, Nokia 4.2, Nokia 2.3, and Nokia 1.3.

Android 11 on OnePlus phones

OnePlus has been on top in recent updates too – and several OnePlus phones are among the first devices to get Android 11. While Android 11 is currently in beta for OnePlus phones, OnePlus' software is generally relatively close to stock – so that might be getting a stable release in the near future.
