Lineage OS 18 [All of the things expected]: Every Android user out there is waiting for Android 11 to be released for their device and as we all know Pixel devices will be first in line to get the Android 11 updates followed by other devices but don’t expect like you’ll be able to experience Android 11 on you 2-year-old smartphone or Do You? We all know unlike Apple still rolling out the latest iOS 13 updates to its almost 5-year-old flagship iPhone 6s, Android Phone manufacturers are not do the same. There has been a delay in the whole timeline of Android 11 like we got Android Developers Preview 4 instead of the Beta 1.

While the release of Lineage OS 18 entirely depends on the release date of Android 11 and how fast the Android 11’s source code will make its way to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) but still we have a fair idea that by the end of this year, that is, by December 2020 we’ll have a stable release of Lineage OS 18 up and running.
