Microsoft Surface Duo might get Android 11 update soon after its launch next month

Android 11 might launch in September and it is around that time that Microsoft Surface Duo users can expect the update.

Microsoft is expected to launch its foldable smartphone Surface Duo by the end of July 2020 with Android 10. The device would, however, reportedly receive an update for Android 11, few weeks after the launch.

A report by Windows Latest claims that the decision to launch the phone with Android 10 instead of the latest Android 11 has to do with the "updated release timeline" and "possible compatibility problems."
