Vodafone Australia does not offer as many devices as some other carriers in the country, however, there are a few phones and tablets from by the carrier that are expected to get the Android 11 update. Before checking the list of eligible devices, let’s take a look at a few details surrounding Android 11.

Google has been releasing new versions of Android for the last few years at its Google I/O event. But citing the Coronavirus outbreak, the company canceled the in-person event this year. The search giant then released the first Android 11 beta update with a brief announcement on Reddit.

Not much after, OnePlus also went ahead and released the Android 11 developer preview build for the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. Following which, OEMs such as Oppo, Xiaomi, and Realme also announced their Android 11 beta programs and released the beta for their flagships too.

Of course, that’s not all. By the beginning of the month of July, the Android 11 beta update had been released to 13 devices from 7 vendors. And to our surprise, Tecno Mobile also released the Android 11 beta update for the Tecno Pouvoir 4.

At present, Google has already released the Android 11 beta 3 update for eligible Pixel phones. Thus, we can expect to see the stable Android 11 version to be released soon. And on that note, it’s now time to check out the list of Android 11 eligible devices from Vodafone in Australia.

Vodafone Australia Android 11 update: Eligible devices

Over the past few years, OEMs have adopted an OS update cycle for all their devices and have stuck to it so far. Most major Android vendors release 2 OS updates for their devices. Although, Samsung surprised us all and announced that it will be releasing 3 major OS updates, at least for its flagships.
