To prepare their smartphones to receive Android 11, Xiaomi and Oppo have started recruiting beta testers. Huawei is also doing it, even if the situation of the Chinese giant vis-à-vis Google is much more specific.
The stable version of Android 11 is just around the corner. Google's OS is currently in its final beta tweaks, and one lead even hinted at a start of deployment on September 8. In the meantime, manufacturers are therefore preparing to adopt the new version of the operating system on their smartphones. With this in mind, Xiaomi and Oppo have started recruiting beta testers.
The list of smartphones receiving Android 11 at Xiaomi
Xiaomi has published a form allowing everyone to register to receive the "Mi Pilot MIUI Global Stable Beta ROM" based on Android 11 with the MIUI home interface. Please note, to be eligible, you must have one of the following three smartphones:
In addition, Xiaomi's form requests several information from the user: email address, Mi ID and IMEI number. You also need a Telegram account and join the dedicated channel.
Four smartphones concerned at Oppo
On the Oppo side, too, we are actively recruiting testers to prepare for the deployment of Android 11 on its smartphones via the ColorOS interface. The brand notably posted a message on its forums to launch a call for candidates. The company warns, however, that this initiative will be reserved for a limited number of devices and very quickly promises more information on the regions concerned.
Here are the affected smartphones:
Like its compatriots Oppo and Xiaomi, Huawei is also launching a recruitment campaign to test the Android 11 version of its EMUI 10.1 interface. It will be recalled, however, that the Chinese giant no longer has the right to Google services and applications on its devices. This update is therefore based on the open source part of Android that the company can freely tap into.
Said update will be available on the following smartphones and tablets:
All that remains is to wait for the official launch of Android 11 by Google to learn more about what's new in the OS.
