Motorola hopped on board the Android 11 train later than most other OEMs, however, has been steadily sending out the new OS to its devices without any hiccups.

The most recent smartphone from the company to pick up the update to Android 11 was the Motorola Moto G Stylus in the U.S.

Now it appears another smartphone from the company is getting the new Android OS. Verizon has confirmed that it has released the Android 11 update for the Motorola One 5G UW.

FYI, the UW stands for ultra-wideband, which basically means that the device supports Verizon’s mmWave spectrum for faster connectivity.

That said, this is the first time we’re seeing Android 11 rolling out for the Motorola One 5G. The update bears the software version RPN31.Q1-51-30-1 and it brings the March security patch to the device as well.


So what’s new with the update? Well, Verizon has shared a brief changelog for the update. Check it out below:

– What’s changing:

The current software update introduces the Android 11 Operating System and the most up to date Android security patches on your device.

Android 11 is optimized for how you use your phone. Say hello to new and improved powerful device controls, easier ways to manage conversations, privacy settings, and so much more. So what’s new on Android 11 on your motorola smartphone?

– Manage Conversations

Better communicate with the people in your life with Conversations and Chat Bubbles. See, respond to, and control your conversations across multiple messaging apps. All in the same spot. Then select people you always chat with. These priority conversations show up on your lock screen. So you never miss anything important.

– Control Connected Devices in One Place

Simple, streamlined device and media controls allow new ways to control your compatible connected devices. Set the temperature to chill, then dim your lights. All from a single spot on your phone. Just long press the power button to see and manage your connected devices. Making life at home that much easier.

– Your Data, In Control

Decide how and when your data is shared by setting one-time permissions and other new features. Give one-time permissions to apps that need your mic, camera or location. The next time the app needs access, it must ask for permission again.


As you can see, most of the major new features introduced with Android 11 are present and accounted for.
