Xiaomi has delivered another update for the Redmi 7A, this time upgrading Indian handsets to Android 10. However, while the entry-level handset should soon be upgraded to MIUI 12, this latest update does not deliver on that.

Xiaomi has finally granted an OS upgrade to the Indian version of the Redmi 7A, a device that it announced over a year ago. The device, which Xiaomi equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 SoC and up to 3 GB of RAM, launched on Android 9.0 Pie and is available in three versions. Xiaomi has already upgraded the Chinese model, and now it is the turn of the Indian edition. Owners of the global version of the Redmi 7A are still awaiting Android 10 on their devices, though.

The update is called V11.0.1.0.QCMINXM and is a 1.6 GB download. Xiaomi has issued it as an over-the-air (OTA) upgrade, so your device should notify you when it is ready to download. Alternatively, you can download V11.0.1.0.QCMINXM from the hyperlink, the file for which is hosted on Xiaomi's servers.

V11.0.1.0.QCMINXM has the same changelog as the update that Xiaomi pushed to Chinese devices earlier this month. Namely, it updates the Redmi 7A to Android 10 and the May 2020 set of security patches.

Please note that the latest update for the Redmi 7A does not upgrade it to MIUI 12. While the device is on Round 2 of Xiaomi's release schedule for MIUI 12, this update is based on MIUI 11. There is no word yet on when Xiaomi will deliver MIUI 12 for the Redmi 7A, either.
