Android 11 update accidentally leaked for Google Pixel 4 XL.
As mentioned at the very start, Pixel mobiles enjoy the luxury of receiving Android updates and services at an earlier stage. But it has been 4 years since a device received an OS update without any notice beforehand. The official, first Android Beta was supposed to roll out in May 2020. It was postponed and there were no details about Android 11 Beta 1 update until Google accidentally/ without any prior notice pushed the update for Pixel 4 XL today.
As you see in the image above, Pixel 4 XL users have reported receiving the Android 11 Beta 1 update. Though this surprise is not for all of them, some seem to be fortunate to have received the update. The real doubt is whether the update was pushed out accidentally or intentionally. Some reports have also conveyed that Google is planning to release the final beta build before the launch of a stable Android 11 update for eligible devices. Another noteworthy point is that the update size is different for all the Pixel 4 XL devices that received the update.
Where one user shared the screenshot of the update image with the package size being slightly over 100 MB, another user receives the OS update of over 700 MB. All that we can do now is wait for an official confirmation of the Android 11 Beta 1 update release.
Rest assured, we post related content and updates every day, so stay tuned. Also, share this article with all those who are waiting for the update!
