Xiaomi Mi and Redmi Android 11 Update: Eligible Phones & Release Date

Android 11 for Xiaomi devices will probably come with stable MIUI 12

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 a stable version of MIUI 11 was launched, it was running on Android 10. This time around with MIUI 12, we have seen something similar. Previously, some Xiaomi devices did not even receive the Android 9 and MIUI 11. They directly received the Android 10 based MIUI 11. Now MIUI 12 is being rolled out in phases, and we can expect that many of our Xiaomi Mi and Redmi devices won’t receive Android 11 with this MIUI build. Only after Google releases Android 11’s stable version in the Q3 of 2020, we can expect to see it rolling out to our Xiaomi Mi and Redmi devices.

So the question might arise in your mind as to what are the Xiaomi Mi and Redmi devices that will receive the Android 11? Let’s take a look into all that we know so far.

Xiaomi Mi and Redmi Android 11 update

Release date

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 time 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 first beta build, Xiaomi promised that three of its flagships: Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro and Poco F2 Pro users will get a chance to test the Beta Builds. Now, we can see that all of them have received Android 11 Beta 2 build.

Internal Android 11 beta tests for the Mi 10 Youth Edition, Redmi K30/ K30 5G/ K30i, Mi CC9 Pro/ Mi Note 10 lineup, Redmi K20/ Mi 9T series have also reportedly started. However, there is no confirmation regarding the public beta build release.

The chances are that when Google releases the final public beta build, Xiaomi will include a bunch of their devices into the Android beta program. But this won’t be a stable Android 11 based MIUI 12 update by any means though. We will probably see the stable Android 11 for Xiaomi phones in December 2020.

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 make a deduction 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 cheap budget value for money devices. But now even they are most likely to push out two major OS updates to their devices.

List of eligible Xiaomi Mi and Redmi phones for Android 11

Note: Based on the company’s previous track record, we have compiled an unofficial list of Xiaomi Mi and Redmi devices that could receive the Android 11 update.

These Xiaomi devices may not receive Android 11 OS

There is a bunch of users out there with Redmi Note 7/ Note 7 Pro, Redmi Note 8/ Note 8 Pro/ Note 8T, Mi A2/ Mi 6X and Pocophone F1/ Poco F1 devices, which 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, usually 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.

      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.
