Xiaomi is the only smartphone OEM to release weekly versions of software for its devices. In the announcement post of this week’s builds on Mi Community China, the company confirmed the Android 11 update for various Xiaomi and Redmi phones as of 2019.
Xiaomi unveiled MIUI 12 at the end of April. Since then, the world’s third-largest smartphone maker has updated its devices to the latest version of its mobile software. As of now, the company’s select budget, mid-range and flagship phones have received the update. Only certain budget and older phones have yet to be updated.
On the other hand, the 2020 premium devices that have been updated to MIUI 12 have also started receiving Android 11 update. Therefore, the company now revealed the next batch of phones that will receive the latest version of Android.
