The first developer preview for Android 10 went live in March last year. We expect the same release timeframe for Android 11 this year, and the fact that a Pixel 4 has been found running Android 11 on a benchmark supports that notion.

Android 10 was released back in August and while it may not seem like it, that was five months ago. That means we're getting close to Android 11, and a new Geekbench listing supports that.

A Pixel 4 has been caught on Geekbench running Android R. There's not much else the listing tells us. The phone has 6 GB of RAM, and recorded scores of 712 and 2181 in the single-core and multi-core tests respectively. This was on Geekbench 5.1, of course.

All this sighting tells us is that Android 11 could be getting tested right now. The first Developer Preview for Android 10 was released back in March last year, and we expected DP1 for Android 11 to go live right around the same period this year.

What would you like to see on Android 11? Let us know in the comments below.
