Galaxy A11 Is Samsung's Latest Budget Device To Get Android 11

Galaxy A11 presser

Android 11 is now rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy A11. The device is now getting Google’s latest software with Samsung’s very own skin on top, One UI 3.1. The build number for this update is ‘A115MUBU2BUE1’.

That being said, this update arrives to the Galaxy A11 only days after it landed for the Galaxy A02s and A12. The detailed changelog is currently unavailable, by the way, but we know what to expect, pretty much.

Android 11 starts rolling out to the Galaxy A11 with One UI 3.1 goodies

Samsung rolled out this very same update to a number of other devices, so not much is different here. You can expect the usual list of Android 11 goodies, including chat bubbles, one-time permissions, notification history, and so on. All the major features that Google announced, basically.


On top of that, you’ll also get all the stuff Samsung added with One UI 3.1, of course. Considering the changes that One UI 3.1 brought to the table, mainly in terms of performance, this device could improve in that regard as well.

It is worth noting that this update has started rolling out in Panama, as of writing this article, but it is expected to spread to many other countries in the coming days. So, if you do own the Galaxy A11, you’ll likely get it soon.

You can wait for the phone to let you know there’s an update available, or you can check manually. Simply navigate to the ‘Settings’ section on your smartphone, and tap the ‘Software update’ option.


The Galaxy A11 is over a year old at this point

The Galaxy A11 is not exactly the newest smartphone in the company’s lineup, not even close. This phone launched back in March last year, so it’s over a year old at this point.

The Galaxy A11 was one of Samsung’s most affordable ‘Galaxy A’ offerings last year. For those of you who were looking for a budget phone, this was one of the options. It is fueled by the Snapdragon 450, while it offers 2 or 3GB of RAM, and four cameras overall.

The Galaxy A11 is made out of plastic, in case you’re out of the loop, while the phone has a display camera hole in the top-left corner. Its ‘chin’ is quite pronounced below the display, but the rest of the bezels are quite thin.
