Google has confirmed that it will unveil the beta version of Android 11 at an online event next month on June 3. The event will start at 8 a.m. PT and will feature Google executives including Android’s vice president of engineering, Dave Burke, and senior director of product management Stephanie Cuthbertson.

Google normally announces new Android versions at Google I/O, the annual developer conference. But the event was canceled this year due to the spread of the COVID-19.

Android 11 is said to feature several privacy and security related options. The next-gen mobile OS will be more strict in allowing apps to access location, camera, and microphones. It will also make it easier for developers to securely support Pixel 4’s like Face Unlock in their apps.

The developer preview of Android 11 is already available. Google has released 2 developer previews to date. The third and final beta of Android 11 will be released in August and a stable version should come by September.
