A Xiaomi MIUI 13.5 eligible device list has been put together, and it features over 120 phones and tablets from the Xiaomi, Mi, Redmi, and POCO brands. While popular ranges like the Redmi 10 series and Redmi Note 9 phones are lined up for a MIUI 13.5 update, it appears time is up for the Xiaomi Mi 9 family, the original Redmi Note 8 lineup, and even the best-selling Redmi 9A.

An exhaustive list of devices that will supposedly be eligible for a MIUI 13.5 software update has been put together by Xiaomiui. There are over 120 smartphones and tablets included, with well-known models such as the Xiaomi 12, Xiaomi Pad 5, Redmi K50, Redmi 9 Power, and POCO X3 Pro unsurprisingly included in the MIUI 13.5 eligible device list.

However, there are also some notable exceptions, although owners should be prepared for this end-of-support situation considering how old some of these phones are. So, there is no room on the list for the original Redmi Note 8 series from 2019 (the updated Redmi Note 8 2021 model is included) and surprisingly the Redmi 9A, 9AT, 9i, and 9C won’t be getting a MIUI 13.5 update. The Redmi 9A was one of the world’s best-selling phones in 2021.

The MIUI 13.5 overlay will be installed on Xiaomi, Mi, Redmi, and POCO phones and tablets that operate on at least Android 12, so those on Android 11 or older are seemingly doomed in terms of ongoing official MIUI support. The tables below feature both ineligible and eligible devices according to Xiaomiui’s recent report. There are some expectations that the MIUI 13.5 update rollout could begin in August.

The following 20 Mi, Redmi, and POCO-branded phones will not be upgraded to MIUI 13.5:
