The LineageOS team, one of the most popular unofficial ROMs for Android smartphones, has unveiled Lineage 18.1 builds based on the Android 11 operating system for a new batch of smartphones.

In early April, Lineage 18.1 was released for 6 dozen smartphone models, then OnePlus 7 Pro, OnePlus 7T Pro, Redmi Note 5 Pro and Moto X (2014) joined them, and now seven-year-old Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (review) and Galaxy S5 (review), six-year-old LG G3 (review), and Xiaomi Mi A2 (review).

Please note that this is the official Lineage 18.1 firmware and not builds made by one or two enthusiasts. Before installing Lineage 18.1, we recommend that you make sure you have up-to-date backups and read the instructions carefully.

In addition to the standard innovations of Android 11, the Lineage 18.1 skin brings additional new features, including the built-in open source backup solution SeedValut, a redesigned voice recorder and music apps, dark theme support for all LineageOS apps, and so on.
