This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..

Original story (published on April 28) follows:

As the development of Android 11 kicks into high gear, eligible devices that have not yet been updated to Android 10 continue to seem like the minority. This, even as more and more OEMs continue to wind up rollouts of Android 10.

According to many of the shared timelines, this rollout should culminate sometime within this second quarter of 2020 and taper off moving into the third quarter of the year, right around the time we should see the official launch of Android 11 sometime in September (at least we hope.)
