The Mi 9 Lite may be treated as the lesser of the Mi 9 series, but even it has now received Android 10 builds of MIUI 11. Not all handsets have, that is. On the contrary, some are remaining on Android 9.0 Pie for the time being, albeit on a higher version of MIUI 11.

The Mi 9 Lite, also sold as the Mi CC9, is the last of the Mi 9 series to receive Android, with Xiaomi releasing V11.0.1.0.QFCCNXM to handsets today. While the 2.3 GB download should arrive as an OTA, the keen-eyed among you will recognise that it is a China Stable build, meaning that it will only be appearing on Chinese handsets. According to Piunikaweb, V11.0.1.0.QFCCNXM introduces the following:

System

  • Stable MIUI based on Android 10
  • Updated Android Security Patch to February 2020. Increased system security.
  • Data usage
  • Fix: Data usage warning appeared multiple times

However, Xiaomi is keeping other regions on Android 9.0 Pie for the time being. While the Global edition has not received an update since V11.3.4.0.PFCMIXM in December, Xiaomi upgraded the European variant to V11.3.9.0.PFCEUXM last week.

The Global edition is due an update by any OEM's standards, and especially by Xiaomi's one to two-month update policy. With the Chinese version having just received Android 10, we would think the time would be ripe for the Global edition to do so, too. We doubt that Xiaomi will upgrade the European edition again for another month or so, though. However, it would be an odd move for Xiaomi to upgrade the Global model to Android 10 and then leave the European version on Android 9.0 Pie for another month.

If you are keen to try out Android 10 on your Mi 9 Lite or Mi CC9, then you can manually download the China Stable build from Xiaomi's servers. Please note that your device must have an unlocked bootloader and TWRP installed for the build to work. V11.0.1.0.QFCCNXM does not come with Google apps pre-installed either, for reference.
