Whilst not yet available for Samsung devices thought it would pit a bit about it here,  Beta recently became available for pixel phones.   Some of the features developed include Message Bubbles, New Design Notifications, Resizeable Picture In Picture Window, Thumbnail Screen shot Visuals.

Word that  Android 11 will limit 3rd Party Apps access to the camera,  whilst this may  be frustrating for some users  the move is considered to be necessary to protect users privacy.    Only pre installed  camera apps will have acccess to  certain functions of the  code. you can however still use a 3rd party app to use a picture and then upload it to another app.

Overscan has also been removed which will make it impossible for  third party gestures apps to hide the navigation bar without rooting the phone. https://www.xda-developers.com/google-confirms-overscan-gone-android-11-crippling-third-party-gestur... 

 

It is not something that worries me greatly but may be an issue for some customers.

A bit more here on  new features that many should  be happy about  such as Native Screen Recording, Revamped Overview Menu,Media Player moving to Quick Settings Area and a few more tools.  Android 11 will also include Ability to Send Picture Messages straight from Notifications and there is upgraded Voice Access capability too.

Android 11 will look a bit different on Samsung Galaxy Devices with the release of One UI 3.0,  Whilst no timetable on that yet some information in the link with  devices likely to be included though there has been a bit of talk on that in other threads.

A benchmark listing for the S20 Plus was spotted earlier this month.   https://www.sammobile.com/news/samsung-galaxy-s20-benchmarked-running-android-11/
