Xiaomi Mi 10 Indian variant receives new MIUI 11 stable update with NavIC support; no sight of MIUI 12 Beta yet
We had earlier reported that Xiaomi has temporarily suspended MIUI 12 beta rollout for the Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and the Redmi K30 Pro due to several code optimization issues. However, stable updates still continue to be available for the Mi 10 series. Indian variants of the Mi 10 are now receiving a new stable MIUI 11 update based on Android 10, which brings along quite a few notable features.
Xiaomi is now rolling out the MIUI 11 version 18.104.22.168.QJBINXM to Mi 10 phones in India. This OTA update includes the April 2020 security patch and brings support for the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (NavIC), which is India's own version of GPS. Qualcomm has recently enabled support for the Indian Space Research Organization's (ISRO) NavIC satellite constellation in all its new SoCs, so it is good to see Xiaomi offering enabling feature to its users.
Apart from the April 2020 security patch and NavIC support, the latest MIUI 11 stable ROM also brings improved system performance, an optimized status bar and notification shade, and a more clearer Wi-Fi 6 icon that shows up only when connected to a Wi-Fi 6 network.
Though the status of MIUI 12 beta for the Mi 10 is still not clear, users can now opt-in to test Android 11 Beta 1. This does not feature the MIUI skin but does give users an idea as to how vanilla Android 11 would perform on their devices. Needless to say, we wouldn't recommend daily driver phones to opt-in to the Android 11 Beta just yet.
The OTA rollout of the MIUI 11 update for the Xiaomi Mi 10 commenced a few days ago. The rollout will happen in stages, but those desirous of getting the update right away can download it from here and perform a manual update.
