8 top features of Android 11 coming to your smartphones

Android Auto is glitchy in Android 11

Google Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, new Chromecast and smart speaker to launch on September 30

Google has recently shared a tweet via its official Twitter account, confirming the arrival of the Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G really soon, on September 30.

Likely to be announced as part of Google's Nest home automation brand, the new Chromecast dongle is expected to sport the Netflix and Disney+ apps preinstalled, but will also let you cast your own content, complete with Google Assistant voice operation.

This will be a proper event unlike the Pixel 4a launch. The Android 11 update will be available for install on Google Pixel 2 and newer phones, with several other brands like Xiaomi, Oppo, realme introducing it in their latest models. Google had already confirmed the launch of Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G.

In a recent post on the Android Developers Blog, Google announced the Android GPU Inspector Open Beta for its Pixel 4 devices running Android 11. The handset is said to be powered by a mighty processor from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 765 SoC. For selfies, there could be an 8-megapixel camera on the front. It says the product will be called "Google Chromecast with Google TV".

Pixel- sensible, do not anticipate Google to utilize the flagship level Snapdragon 865 So C, rather the business has actually always been reported to opt for the 765 household, since it's more budget-friendly. However, the company is yet to release it to newer Pixel devices for the Indian market due to compatibility issues.

And finally, there will also be a smart speaker at the event. The fabric on the Nest, as seen in the Google video previously, will come in at least two colour's - grey with a hint of blue, and soft pink colour.

If you have a Pixel phone, chances are that the update has already arrived on your device. Notably, the launch event will begin at 11 AM PT.
