Global Android 11 update arrives for the Xiaomi Mi 10 with an equivalent upgrade for the Redmi K30 5G in tow
The shift to Android 11 for Xiaomi is gathering pace. The Mi 10 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro began receiving Android 11-based builds last week, and now Google's latest OS has reached the global version of the Mi 10. The Chinese edition of the latter has already been upgraded to Android 11, which means that Xiaomi still has to upgrade the European, Indian, Indonesian and Russian variants.
Xiaomi has called the latest global update for the Mi 10 'V220.127.116.11.RJBMIXM', meaning that is slightly behind the Chinese variant, which has already reached V12.2.2. V18.104.22.168.RJBMIXM is limited to Mi Pilot testers, according to the build's changelog. However, several handsets, seemingly not part of the Mi Pilot program, have received the update. You can try flashing the recovery ROM by downloading the zip file from Xiaomi's servers, should you wish to try Android 11 on your Mi 10. We have included a link to the file below, but you may need to flash it using TWRP or another custom recovery.
Similarly, the upgrade to Android 11 has started for the Redmi K30 5G. The update, V22.214.171.124.RGICNXM, is also at the Beta Stable stage, although Xiaomi Firmware Updater has published the recovery ROM too. The arrival of Android 11 for multiple Redmi K30 models in China suggests that they should be some of the first handsets to receive Google's latest OS globally. It is unclear when Xiaomi will do so, but we imagine that it will be in December or January 2021 at the latest.
