[Updated] Android 11 testing for LG V60 ThinQ, Moto Razr 5G, Moto G Fast/Moto G8, Moto Edge+, & Galaxy S20 FE ongoing
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on November 09, 2020) follows:
Android 11 has been around for quite some time but OEMs like LG and Motorola have been lagging much behind the likes of Samsung even when it comes to testing the latest OS.
While Samsung’s One UI 3.0 is under the public testing stage for the Galaxy S20 and Note 20 series, LG and Motorola might have just started with the development of the latest OS update.
Now, some development appears to have taken place where information about several devices being tested on Android 11 has come to light.
It has been stated that Android 11 testing has started for the LG V60 ThinQ, Moto Edge+, Moto G Fast (aka Moto G8), Moto Razr 5G, and Galaxy S20 FE.
The information comes from Twitter where Max Weinbach, who has proven to be a reliable source, has shared the above-mentioned info.
Since none of the aforementioned OEMs have made any such announcements about the devices in question, this information should still be taken with a pinch of salt.
Nevertheless, if the shared info is indeed true then it is good to see the likes of LG and Motorola joining the Android 11 bandwagon despite coming in late.
It must be noted that reports of Motorola Android 11 development going live surfaced by October-end but the OEM has not stated anything on the matter yet.
Also, it was suggested in early October that Android 11 testing had begun for LG V60 ThinQ while there were no such reports on the matter until now.
We also reported that Samsung Galaxy S20 FE may take some time to join the One UI 3.0 (Android 11) beta program but the latest info suggests otherwise.
Moreover, the Moto Edge+, Moto G Fast (aka Moto G8), Moto Razr 5G, and LG V60 ThinQ being tested with the latest OS update is still big news as both OEMs are not known for timely updates.
That said, we will keep tracking this for further development and will provide details when new information becomes available.
In the meantime, you can check out our Samsung, Motorola, and LG Android 11 update trackers to get the latest updates on the topics.
