Android 11, unveiled by mistake the launch date: when it comes out

Google has unveiled by mistake the release date of Android 11: here's when it comes and which smartphones will be supported

Android 11 will be released on September 8. The alleged launch date was revealed by mistake by Google. In a video posted on YouTube in the Google Developer account, at minute 18.01 it is clearly stated that the release date of Android 11 is set for next September 8.

At the moment the indiscretion has been neither confirmed nor denied by Google, which in the past had stated that the release of the new version of Android would arrive in the third quarter of 2020. The date then indicated in the video would be more than compatible with the intentions of Google, which has already released the beta 1 version of Android 11 a month ago on Google Pixel smartphones first, and then also on other models such as Redmi K30 Pro and POCO F2 Pro, OPPO Find X2 and OPPO Find X2 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 10/Pro and the OnePlus 8 series.

Will Android 11 be released on September 8?

This September will therefore end the third quarter of this 2020, a period in which Google had announced the release of the Android 11 version. To reveal the date, perhaps due to a distraction, is a video from Google Developer on YouTube. The video "Works With "Hey Google" Smart Home Summit - APAC" refers to developments in the work of the developers, a live broadcast of almost an hour and a half in which they talk about the news in the pipeline and that at minute 18.01 clearly shows the words "Checklist for September 8th Android 11 launch", literally "List for the launch of Android 11 on September 8".

Android 11, the news for interface and privacy

The new version of Android promises to introduce changes to the interface, which is slightly redesigned. Instant messaging apps, for example, will be grouped in a single area in the notifications area. In addition, those who use the Google keyboard will receive suggestions processed by artificial intelligence. On the privacy front, the change could be the ability to grant permissions to apps only once. Se poi l’app rimane inattiva per molto tempo, le autorizzazioni scadono e per riutilizzarla dovranno essere concesse di nuovo.

Tra i cambiamenti in vista per Android 11, c’è anche quello della funzionalità del tasto Power. Tenendolo premuto a lungo, compariranno le carte di credito registrate in Google Pay e altri controlli delle app che usano le nuove API. Si tratta di app che potranno essere utilizzate per il controllo dei dispositivi domotici in casa.
