A supposed list of Xiaomi and Redmi devices that will not get an update to Android 11 has been shared online and it makes for disappointing reading for owners of the Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 8T, and Redmi Note 8. Unsurprisingly, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G has also found its way onto this particular shortlist.

Another Android 11-related list concerning Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones has been allegedly leaked online. While we have already reported about a similar list detailing which devices from the Chinese OEM will enjoy an Android 11-based MIUI 12 update, this time the news isn’t so good for owners of smartphones such as the Xiaomi Mi CC9e or the Redmi Note 7 Pro, as apparently there will be no Android 11 update for them. The list of phones that won’t be getting Android 11 is purportedly as follows:

The latter two devices are actually recorded as EOL (End of Life). If this list is at all accurate, it will come as a blow to many who were expecting an OS update, especially owners of devices from the hugely popular Redmi Note 8 series. The Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 8T, and Redmi Note 8 are barely a year old, having been released at the end of August 2019. But there is a note in the list (see image below) that states Redmi/Redmi Note devices get just one major update.
