The postponement of Android 11 beta event also co-incides with the delayed launch of the Pixel 4a smartphone. The phone was also expected to be part of the I/O 2020 lineup but owing to various issues, the product is yet to make its debut.

Android 11 is the first version to come without a dessert name and was announced back in 2019. Here's what Google said about the delay: "We are excited to tell you more about Android 11, but now is not the time to celebrate. We are postponing the June 3rd event and beta release. We'll be back with more on Android 11, soon."

This most likely suggests the company doesn't want to 'celebrate' when people are protesting out on the streets in the US. The protests are to show their anger towards the death of George Floyd in Minnesota. This has now extended beyond a conflict in the region, forcing the cops to take extreme force on people.

Google Pixel 4a features

Google introduced the 3a series in 2019 to make it affordable. This year's Google Pixel 4a is going to be any different. According to rumors, this phone will sport a 5.8-inch Full-HD display and come packing with the Snapdragon 730 processor, paired with 4 or 6GB RAM. It will come with a single 12-megapixel rear camera, and 8-megapixel shooter on the front. It will get a 3,080mAh battery that will support 18W fast charging. The Pixel 4a will rival the iPhone SE 2020 in the US.
