Back in March, Google announced that it will cancel its annual I/O physical event. The company was expected to reveal Android 11, as well as possibly the Google Pixel 4a during the event. An online event was planned for 3 June to replace it, but it looks like even that has been postponed.
The company made the announcement via its Android Developers Twitter account. But the tweet didn’t provide a new date for the event. It merely says that Google will provide more updates on Android 11 “soon”. The tweet also notes that “now is not the time to celebrate”, without explaining what it’s referring to.
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.

Previously, Jon Prosser claimed in a tweet that the Google Pixel 4a will be revealed on 13 July instead. It’s possible that this will also be the date when the company announces details on Android 11. But until the internet search giant makes an official announcement, it’s hard to say for sure if this is really the case.
From the features found in the developer preview version, though, we have a rough idea of what to expect from Android 11. Some of the features previously reported on include 5G metering and one-time app permissions, as well as Bluetooth and Airplane mode interactions.
