Redmi 7A & Redmi Note 8 Pro September security update hits units; Mi 9T Pro also gets updated

Xiaomi is one of the fastest-growing brands globally as well as in India. The brand has been able to capture the budget and mid-range market, while other brands are trying it hard to come up with devices with features like Xiaomi in that specific price range.

Moreover, Xiaomi is also quite good when it comes to rolling out updates for its devices. Recently also, a lot of Xiaomi devices were served with the latest security patches along with some improvements and optimizations. 

And why not? After all, smartphone customers are well aware of the importance of security/firmware updates. It has become one of the key factors for deciding which brand’s smartphone to purchase. Besides, the September 2019 security patch fixed quite a few bugs and issues on the Android devices.
