The Xiaomi Mi A1 was released back in 2017 and has received the two major updates it was promised. According to a new report, though, the device could get a third OS update that will see it enjoy Android Q and all the features it brings when it's released later in the year.

Xiaomi released the Mi A1 back in 2017. The device, depending on how you choose to look at it, paved the way for the current Android One program, as it was the first device from a major mainstream OEM to carry the Android One badge. The device was launched on Android Nougat and has received two updates: Oreo and Pie. Apparently, that may not be where the device’s journey ends.

According to a report by Android Central, the A1 could receive the Android Q update. The A1 has already received two updates. Android One phones are guaranteed to receive two major OS updates and three years of security patches, so this would be more than expected. Of course, there’s a minor issue with the whole thing: Android Central’s list doesn’t have much in the way of evidence for its claims.

We’re inclined to believe that the A1 will, in fact, not receive Android Q, especially considering Xiaomi’s less than stellar record with OS updates, even with its Android One phones. We hope we’re proven wrong, though.

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.
