Still waiting on Android 11? Here's when your phone should get it.


A few phones are still waiting on their Android 11 update.

The stable version of Android 11 was released in September 2020 on Pixel phones. It wasn't as revolutionary an update as Android 12, but it still gave us new tools like Conversations View, chat bubbles, upgraded permissions, a power menu dashboard, and other useful improvements. Unfortunately, other manufacturers took much longer to release their versions of Android 11.

In the year since Android 11 arrived, Google, Samsung, OnePlus, Xiaomi, OPPO, Realme, and Huawei have all finished updating the vast majority of their phones and have moved on to the new Android 12 OS. But LG, Motorola, and Nokia still have a few Android 10 stragglers waiting for their Android 11 updates.

Below, you'll find a broad overview of when to expect the Android 11 update on your phone, split up between OEMs. Note that update availability can vary from region to region.

When will my Google Pixel phone get Android 11?​

The phrase "fast Android updates" is usually an oxymoron, but Google's lineup of Pixel phones is the exception to that rule. Whenever a new update or security patch is released, Pixels are the first in line for that software, making this one of the biggest benefits of owning a Pixel.

The Android 11 stable update is now available to download on all Pixels starting with the Pixel 2 series. Here's the full list:

  • Pixel 2
  • Pixel 2 XL
  • Pixel 3
  • Pixel 3 XL
  • Pixel 3a
  • Pixel 3a XL
  • Pixel 4
  • Pixel 4 XL
  • Pixel 4a
  • Pixel 4a 5G
  • Pixel 5
  • Pixel 5a

When will my Huawei phone get Android 11?​

Although Huawei phones aren't very common or popular in the United States, the manufacturer gets a lot of attention in other parts of the world.

Huawei's Android 11 update took the form of EMUI 11, and the company shared a roadmap for what devices will receive this update in each territory. The list is surprisingly long, with even some tablets getting in on the Android 11 action; the link shows the delivery status for every eligible phone in each Huawei territory.

As of October 2021, all Huawei phones have had EMUI 11 "delivered to all users" in every territory.

When will my LG phone get Android 11?​

Now that we know that LG is leaving the smartphone business behind, it's unsurprising that its phone updates have been even slower than usual. It has released a plan for which phones will receive Android 11, 12, and 13, plus an Android 11 release schedule.

Overall, LG has been the slowest brand to update to Android 11. These are the phones that we believe have been updated so far — though Android 11 may not be released in your specific territory:

  • LG Velvet 5G
  • LG Velvet 4G
  • LG V60 ThinQ
  • LG V50S
  • LG V50
  • LG Q92
  • LG Q31
  • LG Q9 One
  • LG G8X

A few LG phones are still waiting for their Android 11 update, with the LG Wing as the highest-profile holdout expected to receive the update in "Q4 2021," or the last few months of the year. Below are the LG phones still with a pending Android 11 update:

  • LG Wing
  • LG G8S
  • LG Q51
  • LG Q52
  • LG Q61
  • LG Q70

When will my Motorola phone get Android 11?​

The past year was an exciting one for Motorola. The company is still churning out high-quality budget devices, and alongside those, we see Moto's return to the flagship space. However, it's still straggling behind in an area that's been a pain point for years — software updates.

Motorola revealed its eligible Android 11 phones in December 2020, but it took much longer than other OEMs to hit its targeted phones. Most didn't receive the update until spring or summer 2021. So now, every eligible phone has received Android 11 in at least some territories, but may not have received it in specific territories.

Here are the Motorola/Moto phones that have received Android 11, at least in some countries:

  • Motorola Edge+
  • Motorola Edge
  • Moto One Hyper
  • Motorola One Fusion / Fusion+
  • Motorola One Action
  • Motorola One 5G
  • Moto G 5G / 5G Plus
  • Moto G Fast
  • Moto G Pro
  • Moto G Stylus
  • Moto G8
  • Moto G8 Power
  • Motorola Razr 5G
  • Moto G9
  • Moto G9 Play
  • Moto G9 Plus
  • Moto G9 Power
  • Moto G10
  • Moto G40 Fusion
  • Moto G50
  • Moto G60
  • Moto G100

Certain phones like the Motorola One Zoom, Motorola One Macro, and Moto G8 Plus aren't expected to receive Android 11. We'll also note that many of these phones will remain on Android 11. The Edge+, RAZR, and the new double-digit Moto G phones will move onto Android 12, but not the others.

When will my Nokia phone get Android 11?​

In October 2020, Nokia announced its Android 11 update schedule, with the first slate of devices set to receive the update by the end of 2020. Nokia later pushed out a revised roadmap that pushed out the updates for a few older Nokia phones. Unfortunately, many Nokia phones missed their target Q2 2021 update window.

Thankfully, most Nokia phones have made it to Android 11, one year out from its initial update schedule. Here are the Nokia phones that have either received Android 11 or are in the midst of rolling out to Android 11:

  • Nokia 8.3 5G
  • Nokia 8.1
  • Nokia 5.4
  • Nokia 5.3
  • Nokia 4.2
  • Nokia 3.4
  • Nokia 3.2
  • Nokia 2.4
  • Nokia 2.3
  • Nokia 2.2
  • Nokia 1.4
  • Nokia 1.3
  • Nokia 1 Plus

Now, here are the Nokia phones still eligible for Android 11 updates, expected before the end of 2021:

  • Nokia 6.2
  • Nokia 7.2
  • Nokia 9 PureView

Nokia's devices fall under the Android One initiative designed for fast OS releases for third-party phones. But Nokia has failed to push out timely updates, effectively killing the promise of Android One. We can only hope it delivers Android 12 more quickly.

When will my OnePlus phone get Android 11?​

What started as a small enthusiast brand transformed into a mainstream player in the U.S. smartphone space. OnePlus kicks out some of the best Android phones. Unfortunately, the brand had some difficulties with its Android 11 updates, falling behind schedule on its releases and sometimes walking back software updates.

Finally, after the OnePlus 6 series received Android 11 in August, all OnePlus phones eligible for the update now have Android 11. The brand has moved on to the OxygenOS 12 beta. Here are the OnePlus devices that now have a stable build of Android 11/ OxygenOS 11:

  • OnePlus 9
  • OnePlus 9 Pro
  • OnePlus 9R
  • OnePlus 8T
  • OnePlus 8 Pro
  • OnePlus 8
  • OnePlus Nord
  • OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition
  • OnePlus 7T Pro
  • OnePlus 7T
  • OnePlus 7 Pro 5G
  • OnePlus 7 Pro
  • OnePlus 7
  • OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition
  • OnePlus 6T
  • OnePlus 6

We know that the OnePlus Nord N10 5G and Nord N100 won't receive Android 11. Future OnePlus phones will get three or more years of updates thanks to the new OnePlus/ OPPO merger, but older OnePlus phones will remain stuck with Android 10.

When will my OPPO phone get Android 11?​

OPPO is also turning its attention to Western markets. The Chinese manufacturer made many changes to its ColorOS interface over the last 12 months, making it more palatable to a global audience.

After introducing the ColorOS 11 based on Android 11 in closed beta for the Find X2 series, the company moved on to the stable build for its eligible phones. Now, every eligible phone should have it, as the company moves on to ColorOS 12.

These are the ColorOS phones that have received the Android 11 update:

  • Find X3 Pro

When will my Samsung phone get Android 11?​

Samsung used to be one of those manufacturers that you couldn't rely on for good software support. But within the last year, it's improved significantly. Samsung announced that it's now committed to three years of major OS updates for all of its flagship phones, starting with the Galaxy S10 series.

The company has been on a tear in 2021, releasing the final version of One UI 3.0 (based on Android 11) to older devices like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy A02. Based on its list of One UI 3.0 phones eligible for the update, we believe that all of its phones should now have the update. Some specific regions may not have received updates for the oldest Galaxy A phones and tablets, but on the whole, the company has moved on to One UI 4.0.
