Meizu 17/17 Pro Android 11 stable update will only arrive in Spring 2021


Yesterday, Meizu teased the arrival of Android 11 for its smartphones. Today, the company has officially confirmed the date on which it will start recruiting closed beta testers. Unsurprisingly, the brand’s flagship smartphones – Meizu 17 and Meizu 17 Pro will be the first in line to receive the update.

Meizu 17 Pro Android 11 Closed Beta Recruitment and Stable Release

According to a post by the official Flyme Weibo account, Meizu will open registrations for the Meizu 17 series Android 11 Closed Beta program on December 23. Although the company did not mention when the beta builds will start arriving, it did reveal that the stable release will happen in Spring 2021.

In other words, owners of Meizu 17 and Meizu 17 Pro will have to wait until either the end of Q1 2021 or early Q2 2021 to experience Android 11 on their smartphones. Though the wait seems too long, it is much better than the Android 10

rollout, which only began in late May 2020.

That said, the brand is yet to disclose the list of eligible devices for Android 11. Hence, we are not sure which Meizu

phones will be getting the update. Given the firm’s market share, we think only certain handsets such as Meizu 16S, Meizu 16S Pro, and Meizu 16T will make it to the list.

Meizu was once known for its Flyme Android skin. But with diminishing market share, it is sad to see the firm’s software support to degrade over the years.
