Redmi K20 Pro Android 10 update rolling out in India via MIUI 11 stable channel (Download link inside)
It is that time of the year, where OEMs are busy pushing out the latest Android update for their compatible devices. However, smartphone brands like Samsung, that have heavy skinned UI on top of Android OS, take a bit of time in pushing out updates.
Reportedly, the Redmi K20 Pro is receiving the MIUI 11 based Android 10 update in India. Note that the update has been already pushed in China. Besides, Xiaomi also rolled out the Android 10 stable update (based on MIUI 10, not 11) for the Redmi K20 Pro in India in past, which was called off.
FYI, Redmi K20 Pro was the first phone from Xiaomi that got the stable Android 10 update on the same date as that of Google Pixel family.
Talking about the current update, it carries the version number V126.96.36.199.QFKINXM and weighs in around 2.2 GB in size. So, make sure that you have a stable WiFi or a mobile data connection for downloading this update.
Note that the update brings in the latest Android 10 with MIUI 11 and also brings in some goodies like design improvements for a full-screen display, Always On Display, sounds of nature, and more.
Going by the MIUI 11 update roadmap, the K20 Pro was slated to get MIUI 11 stable in early November and this update proves it right. Below is the changelog of the update along with the screenshot of it:
