The Android 11 update will start making its way to Xiaomi devices in September. It will be based on MIUI 12 and available to a host of Xiaomi, Redmi, and Poco smartphones. The company is already testing the software on many smartphones, such as the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Redmi K30 Pro.

With Google I/O canceled in its entirety this year, Google' couldn't showcase Android 11's features. However, the software is still on schedule to be released later this year. Android 11 will start making its way to Xiaomi devices in September. It will be based on MIUI 12, as Xiaomi isn't due to unveil MIUI 13 until 2021.

Xiaomi is already testing Android 11-based MIUI 10 on the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10 Youth Edition, Redmi K30 Pro, Redmi K30, Redmi K30 5G, Poco F2 Pro, Poco X2, Redmi K30i 5G, Mi CC9 Pro, Mi Note 10 Pro, Mi Note 10, Mi Note 10 Lite, and Redmi K30. The aforementioned devices will get the update first, followed by others. Refer to the attached image to check if your device is eligible.

Piunikaweb discovered the list on a (now deleted) thread on the Mi community forum. If you don't see your device on there, don't worry. Xiaomi will likely add more eligible devices to it as time passes. We can even see some smartphones get their Android 11 update with MIUI 13 on top. Xiaomi is notorious for updating only the MIUI version on devices, effectively leaving them on older versions of Android.

Android 11 has a lot of exciting features in store for us. The 4GB limit for video files is gone, allowing you to record videos at 4K and even 8K without having to worry about multiple files scattered across your gallery. Other 'new' features like an in-built screen recorder, calling recording capabilities, and support for rolling screenshots already exist on Xiaomi devices. Not all Android 11 features will make it to MIUI 12, though.

I've been an avid PC gamer since the age of 8. My passion for gaming eventually pushed me towards general tech, and I've been a stereotypical 'nerd' ever since. I have a degree in mechanical engineering and have worked in the manufacturing industry. When I'm not writing news on Notebookcheck, you can find me playing or watching an intense match of DOTA 2
