The company has already revealed its timeline for rolling out Android 11 update to its range of smartphones. The Galaxy Flip and Fold series will start receiving the update from January 2021 followed by Galaxy Note series and older Galaxy S10 series.

The Galaxy A-series and Galaxy M-series will start getting the update from March 2021. Devices such as Galaxy S10e, Galaxy M30, and Galaxy M20 are missing from the list which is a bit disappointing. Though, it might also be due to the unavailability of the devices in the region. We should wait for some time to see if Samsung has a plan to update these devices to Android 11.
