No Android 11 for the Mi Mix 2S; Redmi 8A prospects slim too but MIUI 12 release imminent

Xiaomi's flagship phones are already on their way to Android 11 but things aren't quite as cosy on the lower-end of the hierarchy. The Mi Mix 2S, for example, has been said not to receive the update. The Redmi 8A is another phone with slim prospects, too.

As Xiaomi's MIUI 12 rollout slowly continues, the company is already setting its sights on the release of Android 11, with the Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro receiving Android 11 beta builds yesterday. It would appear, however, that the Android 11 update will not get to a number of Xiaomi phones, especially the budget offerings and older flagships.

One such phone is the Mi Mix 2S, Xiaomi's Snapdragon 845-powered flagship phone that was released in early 2018. The phone ran Android Oreo at launch and has received two major OS updates: Pie and Android 10. As expected, it will not receive a third, meaning Android 10 is where its journey ends. The Mi Mix 2S will receive the MIUI 12 update, however, although it may take a while.

The Redmi 8A is unlikely to get the Android 11 update either, according to a moderator on the Mi Forums. Thoughts of Android 11 on the Redmi 8A may be a bit premature, however, as the phone remains on Android Pie for now. The Redmi 8 got the Android 10 update in China a while ago, though, so it shouldn't take much longer for the cheaper 8A. The Redmi 8A is also expected to get the MIUI 12 update sometime next month.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
