Despite the fact that Android 11 has not yet been released, many manufacturers have been trying to catch the hype on the upcoming release for a long time. This turned out to be quite simple. All you need is to publish at least a small list of devices that will receive the update, and wait for a positive reaction from the audience. This is the easiest way, because you can determine which smartphones will update to the next version Android, and which will not, by their age. Obviously, this is why only uninteresting brands use this method, while interesting ones keep a secret to the last, although they do not always succeed.
Huawei plans to upgrade to Android 11 over 20 devices
In the first phase Huawei plans to upgrade to Android 11 more than 20 devices. Such data is provided on the brand's Weibo social media page. This list so far includes not only smartphones, but also tablets, the update of most of which, however, the company plans to postpone to the second stage.
How devices Huawei upgrade to Android 11
Most of the devices that claim Android 11 are, whatever one may say, flagships
- Huawei Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro, Mate 30 RS Porsche Design
- Huawei Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20X, Mate 20 RS Porsche Design, Mate X
- Huawei P40, P40 Pro
- Huawei P30, P30 Pro
- Huawei Nova 6 5G, Nova 5T, Nova 5T Pro, Nova 5i Pro
- Huawei MatePad, MediaPad M6
- Honor V30 Pro, V20, 20/20 Pro, Honor 20s, Honor 20 Youth Edition, Honor 9X Pro.
As you can see, the list of devices that Android 11 shines on is quite extensive, and this is only the first stage. Obviously, once it's finished, the company will start updating other devices as well. These will most likely include the remaining tablets, budget smartphones and new items that will be released after the official release Android 11.
You may not have paid attention, but for some reason the number of applicants for Android 11 is missing Honor 9X, although its improved version is present – Honor 9X Pro. I admit that the compilers of the list simply forgot to turn on the classic smartphone, because they have absolutely identical hardware with an advanced configuration. However, it should not be ruled out that the Chinese, in their usual manner, decided to simply merge the clone Huawei P Smart Z, which was also not included in the number of privileged devices.
When is EMUI 11 coming out
The wording 'stage' is very interesting Huawei. Despite the fact that the list above includes devices that are planned to be updated at the first stage, what exactly are considered stages, how long they last and what moment is the transition between them, the company does not specify. Obviously, in this way the Chinese simply leave room for maneuver, avoiding the announcement of specific dates. However, the approximate timing of the release of EMUI 11 is still known to us.
EMUI 11 is unlikely to come out in September. Most likely, you shouldn't wait for the update earlier than October-November
The distribution of EMUI 11, built on the basis of Android 11, is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of 2020. It is very difficult to believe in such a forecast, since for this the update should be released before the end of September. However, this is unlikely to happen so soon, given that this year Google was forced to postpone the launch of a test build of the updated OS for more than a month. Therefore, I would assume that Android 11 will be released only in October, and will reach the devices Huawei by November at best.
On the one hand, the update delays that are typical for smartphones Huawei are understandable. Still, the company is in disgrace and is trying in every possible way to resist the machinations that the US government is building for it. But, on the other hand, in the place of the leadership Huawei, I would be careful not to make loud statements about the timing of the release of updates, given that they most likely will not be able to keep their word. Of course, one can assume that Huawei has insider information about launch dates Android 11, but given the problems that one after another fall on Google's head, the Chinese are plunging themselves into a serious addiction to mood search giant.
