Android 11 Beta is also available on OnePlus, Xiaomi and Realme smartphones July 15, 2020 – Posted in: Smartphone news
This week Google finally released the first beta of Android 11. As a reminder, this new version of the mobile operating system was already available in the preview version, but was a very unstable version that was only intended for developers of Android 11 ‘applications. The version is more stable and closer to the final version, which will be released in a few months.
While the preview could only be tested on Google Pixel smartphones, the beta can also be tested on certain third-party models. And after the announcement of this first beta, manufacturers will announce which models they can be installed on.
As mentioned in a previous article, the Android 11 beta will be available for Oppo Find X2 and Find X2 Pro. And today we are also learning that this beta can also be installed on OnePlus, Xiaomi, Vivo and Realme smartphones.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve worked closely with Google to give OnePlus 8 Series users early access to Android 11 Beta through the Developer Preview program. Learn more: https://t.co/1G3yDvlU8m pic.twitter.com/mDBoO8Dapy

Android 11: A beta was started discretely
Typically, Google introduces Android’s top new features every year during the I / O conference. But this year it was canceled because of the pandemic. And the online event that Google had planned to launch the first Android 11 beta was also canceled. “We canceled the virtual launch event so people could focus on important discussions about racial justice in the United States.”says Stephanie Cuthbertson, director at Google.
However, the beta was launched, but in a more discreet format, so developers can prepare for the update to Android 11. Usually, the list of devices on which this beta can be installed should become smaller one by one.
