Xiaomi Mi and Redmi Android 11 Update: Everything We Know So Far

Last year, when MIUI 11 was released, it was pushed out in many patches. During the initial days, it was running on Android 9, but later, when Google released Android 10, Xiaomi devices started getting MIUI 11 update based on Android 10. This time around, with MIUI 12, we have seen something similar. Now, Android 10-based MIUI 12 is running on eligible Xiaomi devices. However, we can expect that many of our Xiaomi Mi and Redmi devices will receive Android 11 with this MIUI build. Recently, Google has released Android 11’s stable version. So, we can expect it to roll out to our Xiaomi Mi and Redmi devices in phases.

So, the question might arise in your mind about the Xiaomi Mi and Redmi devices that will receive the Android 11. Let’s take a look at all that we know so far.

June 2021 Updates:

  • The Xiaomi Redmi 9 and Redmi Note 8 Pro have received the Android 11 stable update in China.
  • The Android 11 stable update is now rolling out for the Redmi Note 9 Pro (Global), Poco X3 NFC (Global), Redmi Note 9S (Europe), Xiaomi Mi 10T-Lite 5G (Taiwan), Redmi Note 9T (Europe) and Redmi Note 9 (Europe/Global)
  • The Xiaomi Redmi K20 and Redmi 9 users can get the Android 11 update in India as a Pilot build.

We have also published a dedicated post for the Xiaomi Android 12 update tracker; you can check it out here.

Release Date

  • The stable Android 11 rollout for select Xiaomi phones was started in October 2020. Now, Xiaomi has included many of its devices in the Android 11 Beta program. These devices will also get an Android 11 stable update soon in phases.

Last year, around when Google announced public beta testing of Android 10, Xiaomi was quick to include their two flagships of that time into the list, which included the Xiaomi Mi 9 and Mi Mix 3. This year, we have the Mi 10/ Mi 10 Pro and Redmi K30 Pro/ Poco F2 Pro as the flagship offerings. After releasing Google’s Android 11, Xiaomi promised that three of its flagships, Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and K30 Pro/ Poco F2 Pro users, will get a chance to test the Beta Builds. Now, we can see that all of them have received the Android 11 Stable Beta build.

Major software update policy

Xiaomi does not have a fixed policy for updates like other smartphone manufacturers. However, judging by their track record of older devices, we can deduce that, like Samsung, they also push out two significant updates.

The Mi and Max series devices from Xiaomi receive at least two major OS updates. Even the cheaper Mi series devices have a history of two significant updates. Along with the sister brand, Redmi from Xiaomi is like a separate entity now, and even they are releasing expensive flagship devices. Before, when Redmi was tied down under Xiaomi, they only launched value-for-money devices. But now, even they are most likely to push out two major OS updates to their devices.

  • Pocophone F1

There are a bunch of users out there with Redmi Note 7/ Note 7 Pro, Mi A2/ Mi 6X, and Pocophone F1/ Poco F1 devices who are wondering whether they will receive the new Android 11 update. These devices are not included in the unofficial eligible list either, and there is a reason behind it. As mentioned above, Redmi pushes out one major OS update. This time around, after being independent, Redmi has launched some premium devices, and we expect them to receive the second-year update, but that is only for the premium Redmi devices. The budget or mid-range specialist Xiaomi devices will most probably continue on their culture of a singular OS update.

  1. and Xiaomi Mi A2’s eligibility as belonging to Androidone program has expired that’s why it’s ineligible for the Android 11 update? let me know. thanks!

    • Yes. With Android One, the phone gets two major OS updates, and it already got them. A.K.A. it was updated from A.8 to A.9 and from A.9 it got updated to A.10. That’s why it won’t get the Android 11.
