Speaking about the update, Microsoft has claimed that this update will address all the possible circumstances that were mentioned in the Android Security Bulletin of 2021. 

From Microsoft’s announcement, it is noteworthy that the Surface Duo would not be getting the Android 11 update, at least not yet. As a matter of fact, the firm did not even make any remarks or comments to indicate that Android 11 will ever be made available for the Surface Duo smartphone. 

Surface Duo users have also been advised that they can choose to wait out for the update, and allow it to be pushed to them, or they can download it themselves in few little steps on their smartphones. This can be done simply by navigating to the settings app on their phones and checking for updates in the system update section where they’ll find the update.
