Google gives us a short peek at Android 11. Developer Preview coming soon?

  • It seems the company is gearing up to reveal the developer preview of the new Android
  • When launched, the preview will initially be available to Pixel users

Android enthusiasts got a short and most likely, unintentional peek at Android 11. It seems Google is gearing up to reveal the developer preview of the latest version. However, there was no official word about the same and hence this sneak-peek can only be attributed to an error.

According to a report by Android Police, the page that introduces Android 11 to developers went live on their official website. The company was quick to take down the page but not before screenshots caught a glance of what’s in store for Android users this year. The report claims that the link to the page now reverts to the Developer Preview page of Android 10.

Though there were multiple links on the page, the Android Police report claims that these were not active. Going by the details revealed on the page, the next version of Android will support folding displays and add new safeguards to provide better user privacy within applications.

There’s not much that was revealed on the page other than an introduction to the broader theme of the upgrade. Google will be adding more features and enhancements before it starts rolling out the official software.

The first Developer Preview of Android 10 was unveiled in March last year. Going by the annual update cycle, the new preview should be in its final stages. However, Google has not provided any information about a possible release, so the reader should take this information with a grain of salt. When launched, the preview will initially be available to Pixel users.
