Xiaomi has confirmed that nine of its recent smartphones will be getting the MIUI 11 update based on Android Q in Q4 2019 with two others, the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro, slated to get the update by Q1 2020. The present availability is with regards to the Chinese ROM and information about global variants is not yet clear.

OEM ROMs aren't really the first ones to get the latest and greatest Android feature updates but a lot of OEMs have started picking up pace in update delivery after Android Oreo, Xiaomi being one of them. According to an official post on the MIUI forums, Xiaomi is all set to deliver the Android Q update to nine of its smartphones by Q4 2019 and two by Q1 2020.

Phones that will be getting the Android Q update later this year include:

Early next year, the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro will be joining the Android Q bandwagon as well. Android Q for Xiaomi devices will be delivered in the form of MIUI 11 that is slated to bring refreshed icons, smoother animations, automatic screenshot management, system-wide dark theme, and more. 

It must be noted that the above availability schedule is for the Chinese ROM and Android Q availability for the global variants of these phones is not yet known. Recently, Xiaomi said that it will be restricting the availability of beta ROMs only to newer and more powerful devices so as to streamline the development process.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
