Android is an open-source project from Google. We have Android Q or Android 10 as the latest build. Android Q comes with plenty of new features but the advancement is always appreciable so, for this year we have Android 11 or Android R. Android R will be going to be the next Android system from Google. This new Operating system has many advancements in Notifications, Do Not Disturb, Permission Management, some UI tweaks, and many more security enhancements.
What name is decided for Android 11?
As per Google, the old trend of naming the Android version on deserts has been discontinued from Android Pie or Android 9. This is done because they feel like, it is hard for people to remember these names. They have replaced the naming with a pure version number following the iOS trend. So we think Android 11 will be called Android R or just Android 11.
Recently, Google has released the first developer preview of Android 11 showcasing some new features. Though Android 11 wouldn't be a major UI change but contains some significant changes. These changes are practical for any user.
