INTRO: If you have been following Android releases for a long time, you would know that the stable version is usually rolled out sometime in September. Google is currently testing its next-gen Android update, Android 11, with Pixel and a few third-party users. The company unrolled the second beta update just yesterday. But, because the title should tell you, Google has mistakenly revealed the official launch date for the stable release.
Android 11 Stable Version on September 8
It was first noticed by the eagle-eyed folks at PhoneArena, the launch date seems to possess been revealed in one among the videos (now deleted) uploaded during Google’s virtual smart home summit. As shown within the screenshot below, Google will start rolling out the Android 11 stable version on September 8.
This is surely an error but there’s an opportunity that it’s not entirely true. First, Google had to cancel its developer conference this year. It then scheduled an Android 11 beta launch show but that too was pushed back thanks to the protests in America. Android 11 beta 1 finally arrived earlier last month with none prior notice. This means there’s an enormous possibility of the ultimate release arriving late also.
The September 8 launch date is, however, unsurprising because the company has stuck to an identical timeframe over the past two Android releases. Also, the official beta and stable release schedule coincide perfectly with the aforementioned date.
So yeah, we’re certainly looking forward to a stable release in September but is that the 8th a tentative placeholder or the official date still remains to be seen. Until then, plow ahead and inspect the simplest new features in Android 11 right here.
