Samsung Android 11 Roadmap: Surprising Omissions

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE

Interestingly, the list does not include every major Samsung smartphone or tablet. What surprised us the most is the lack of names like Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S20 FE, and the Galaxy Tab S7 Plus. 

Unfortunately, reasonably relevant smartphones like the Galaxy S9 and Note 9 shall not get the Android 11 update. Both the devices have exhausted the software update promise of 2 years by Samsung. Both the smartphones have received two major updates in the past, and now Samsung is not liable for another significant update.
