In March 2021, nearly 60 devices received the LineageOS 18.1 based on Android 11. The companies receiving the update included Google, LG, Motorola, OnePlus, Samsung, Sony, Xiaomi, and others. This month, we saw 2 new OnePlus devices, 1 new ASUS device, and 1 new Xiaomi device getting the LineageOS 18.1 build update.
According to XDA, the OnePlus devices getting the update include the OnePlus 6 (code-name “enchilada”) and the OnePlus 6T (code-name “fajita”). Earlier, the OnePlus One, 3/3T, 5/5T, 7 Pro, 7T Pro, 8/8 Pro, and 8T, received this update. The OnePlus 2, 7, 9 series, Nords, and all the carrier variants are waiting to receive support from LineageOS.
Then we have ASUS ZenFone 5Z getting the LineageOS 18.1 support. However, this device may not get an official Android 11 update, but LineageOS 18.1 should offer a stable Android 11 experience for those who want to hold onto their device for a bit longer. The ZenFone 5Z was initially launched with Android 8.0 Oreo, and later it received Android 9 Pie and Android 10 updates.
Now to Xiaomi; we heard that Mi Note3 3 is now supported by LineageOS 18.1. Xiaomi Mi Note 3 was launched in 2017 with Android 7.1 Nougat installed. It then received the Android Oreo and Android 9 Pie updates. That was all for this device, no more OS upgrades. And now we see this device is getting support from LineageOS, which provides fairly stable Android 10 and Android 11.
According to XDA, “the build for the OnePlus 6 is maintained by developers LuK1337 and luca020400, while the build for the 6T is maintained by just LuK1337. The ZenFone 5Z’s build is maintained by three developers: rohanpurohit, Jackeagle, and ThEMarD. Lastly, the Mi Note 3’s build is maintained by dianlujitao.”
