While previous information heavily indicated that the Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 8, and Redmi Note 8T would not be eligible for Android 11, a new report leans towards the contrary. Apparently, the three phones are set to get Android 11 sometime in the future, with Xiaomi recently kickstarting internal testing.

Over the past few months, reports have surfaced strongly indicating that Xiaomi would not send the Android 11 update to its year-old mid-range devices like the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro. New information, however, leans towards the contrary, and owners of the two devices may yet be eligible for Android 11.

Interestingly, the source of this report, just a while ago claimed that neither the Redmi Note 8 Pro nor the regular Redmi Note 8 would be eligible for the newest version of Android. This is quite the turnaround in stance. The latest report claims that Xiaomi has now begun internal Android 11 testing for the Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 8, and Redmi Note 8T—the latter two of which are essentially the same device.

While certain documents have surfaced indicating that Xiaomi only plans for one OS upgrade for its Redmi Note series devices, two OS upgrades for phones in that lineup would not be unheard of. The Redmi Note 5 Pro, for example, was launched with Android Nougat and received both Android Oreo and Android Pie.

In any case, you'd do well to take this information with a grain of salt—pending more concrete confirmation.
