Xiaomi releases a beta MIUI 11 update to Android 10 for the Mi Mix 3
Following on from the Mi 9 SE, the Mi Mix 3 has now received MIUI 11, albeit in beta form. The Android 10-based OS introduces a host of changes including a new dark mode among others, the full list of which you can read here. The Mi Mix 3 is one of the devices in Phase 1 of the MIUI 11 release schedule, which Xiaomi promises to begin by October 31.
In accordance with this schedule, the Chinese company has posted MIUI 11 9.10.23 for the device, which you can download now if your handset is enrolled in the Chinese beta program. The update weighs in at 2.3 GB, for reference. Please note that Xiaomi no longer runs a Global beta program, so you must wait patiently for the company to release a stable MIUI 11 build for the Mi Mix 3 unless you are prepared to install Chinese builds.
The Mi Mix 3 currently has no direct successor, with Xiaomi describing the Mi Mix Alpha as a concept phone. The Mi Mix 4 has not come to pass yet either, but the Mi Mix 3 is now relatively inexpensive at US$360 on Amazon.com. The device packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, 6 GB of RAM and a 93.4% screen-to-body ratio, our full review of which you can read here.
