Google mistakenly teases Android 11 before taking down preview page

Android 11 preview expected any day now

Google has just pushed live a series of changes to its Developer Preview site, which makes reference to Android 11.

This isn't necessarily something surprising given that Android Q ended up being called Android 10, but on the other hand, Google itself seems to be jumping from one approach to another every now and then. The public beta, meanwhile, will drop only in May, and it'll be more stable than the first developer release.

Android 10 is still fairly fresh, but it appears that work on Android 11 has already begun and it might soon be ready in its Developer Preview avatar. 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.


However, Android Police was quick enough to snap a screenshot of the full page, which is seen below. Moreover, a Google-made alternative to Apple's AirDrop sharing feature also leaked. Google just updated their developer preview portal to say that it is here.

New features and APIS - APIs for foldables, sharing, connectivity, media, NNAPI, biometrics, and more. This could have happened for several reasons but was likely a simple mistake by someone on the developer preview team. If that changes, we'll certainly let you know. While the page was up, all the links for new features still referred to Android 10, for example. Whenever he's not writing about gadgets he miserably fails to stay away from them, although he desperately tries.
