XDA’s Mishaal Rahman (@MishaalRahman) has received DMs from a couple of Twitter users stating that they have received the first beta version of Android 11 on their Pixel 4 XL units. One of the two even sent Rahman a screenshot showing that the files for the update weigh in at 736MB. Originally, the first beta version of Android 11 was expected to drop last month during the Google I/O Developers Conference. But the COVID-19 pandemic forced Google to cancel the annual affair and the company decided to move the beta release to June 3rd.
Google has yet to announce a new date for the first official Android 11 beta launch
But fate stepped in again on Saturday when Google announced that it was postponing the release of the first Android 11 beta. The delay had nothing to do with the coronavirus but everything to do with the social unrest that spread across the United States Friday night and all-day Saturday. While Google has yet to announce a new date for the release, the updates received by the two Pixel 4 XL users carried the build number of RPB1.200504.018.
