Android 11 is the next operating system update coming from Google, and there are many rumors on the internet about it. Funny story: by mistake, Google has put up the developer preview of Android 11 on its official website. Then, they took it down. But people were fast, and now we know more. So they had no other choice than to release the Android 11 developer preview officially. We have written this article to tell you all we know so far.
The update will come with 5G connectivity. The API also comes with a higher quality resolution by consuming more data, that, if the network is strong enough to go with unmetered data. Also, with Android 11, you can easily switch between cellular data and WiFi, without the connection dropping.
This update will come with one-time permission for using apps like camera, location, and microphone. The OS will also allow one-time permission as temporary access. The app will get access to your data until the user stops and closes the app. The app then will have to request access again when the user opens the app.
The update will come with a dark theme, with screen recording, and a quick settings file.
