Xiaomi was almost the first company to have long and systematic support for its smartphones. We’re talking about Android-based smartphones. But even this policy does not allow support for smartphones forever, insiders have published a list of devices that will be stripped of Android 11.
Xiaomi has already started mailing the beta version of MIUI 12 based on Android 11 for some devices, and a list of Xiaomi smartphones has been published on the web, the owners of which will be left without the latest Android update. It is important to note that we are talking only about the Android version and not about MIUI-branded updates.
So, the list includes the following devices:
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G
Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha
Xiaomi Mi CC9e
Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 8T and Redmi Note 8
Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7S
Redmi 8, Redmi 8A Dual and Redmi 8A
This list is not official. The release of MIUI 12 based on Android 11 will only take place in September, after which we will know for sure whether the listed devices will not really receive a major Android update.
