Xiaomi confirms Android Q-based MIUI 11 for 11 of its devices including the Mi 8 and Redmi Note 7
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:
- Xiaomi Mi 9
- Redmi K20 Pro
- Xiaomi Mi 8
- Xiaomi Mi 8 Screen Fingerprint Edition
- Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition
- Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S
- Xiaomi Mi Mix 3
- Redmi K20
- Xiaomi Mi 9 SE
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.
