Samsung has never been at the front of the line to roll out the latest Android updates. That said, the OEM has made strides in the last few years to push new versions quicker. Now, the big question is which Samsung Galaxy devices will get their Android 11 updates first. Luckily for you, the process has already started, so let’s dive in.
Samsung Android 11 update: Which phones have already received it?
As we said, Samsung isn’t always the fastest when it comes to updates. Part of this delay is due to the OneUI updates that are required. As a result, Samsung tends to start with the most recent devices and work its way back to the oldest models. So far, you’ll find the Android 11 update on the Galaxy S20 series (including the FE), Note 10 and 20 series, Galaxy S10 series, and all of Samsung’s folding phones.
The latest Samsung Galaxy S21 devices shipped with Android 11 already onboard, so you won’t have to worry about those until Android 12 rolls around. More recently, Samsung pushed the Android 11 update to its mid-range Galaxy M phones and certain Galaxy A units. For a quick recap of which devices are updated, check here:
- S21/S21 Plus/S21 Ultra
- S20/S20 Plus/S20 Ultra/S20 FE
- S10/S10 Plus/S10 5G/S10E/S10 Lite
- Note 20/Note 20 Ultra
- Note 10/Note 10 Plus/Note 10 Lite
