Android 11 seems to have a launch date set, based on a video revealed (and since unpublished) by Google for the latest “Hey Google” Sensible Residence Summit. There might but be a delay, and the context of the announcement is slightly unclear, however a slide on the developer-focused video clearly says, “September eighth Android 11 Launch.”
The video in query.
The date is clearly seen on the header on one of many presentation slides (above and beneath). Whereas the general context of the video at this level has to do with guaranteeing Assistant-compatible sensible dwelling machine makers are prepared for that date, the slide itself appears fairly clear. Barring any delays or adjustments, I feel we are able to anticipate the Android 11 launch on September eighth.
A nonetheless from the linked video.
We beforehand suspected that the start of September would possibly in the end be chosen for Android 11’s steady launch. Google promised builders “11 weeks of Android” beginning on the week of June 15th, shortly after the Android 11 Beta 1 launch. On the time, I speculated that the timing suits effectively with the beforehand revealed schedule, and we would most likely see Android 11 launched close to the tip of these 11 weeks. September eighth pads that timeline with an additional week, however it in any other case suits.
September eighth suits the anticipated timeline exactly.
Final 12 months’s Android 10 launch was additionally firstly of September. Normally Google sticks to Mondays for its massive Android releases, and September eighth this 12 months is a Tuesday, however Monday of that week is Labor Day.
It isn’t irrefutable, and we should have just a few small lingering doubts (not the least of which being one other delay), however that is as near proof optimistic for a particular date that we may get, and I am already adjusting my schedule round it.
