Xiaomi has shifted gears in pushing the 11th iteration of their customized skin, MIUI. Note that, in the recent past, a lot of Xiaomi devices have been served with the MIUI 11 updates in various regions.

Redmi Note 8 Pro already received MIUI 11 in China

The list of devices that have already received the MIUI 11 is continuously growing and in a recent development, two more devices i.e. Xiaomi Mi MIX and Mi Max 2 is reportedly receiving the latest MIUI update.

Note that the update is being pushed globally and if you own a Mi MIX or a Mi Max 2 device then you can experience the most refined MIUI user interface on your device right away.

What is more surprising is that the update for Mi Max 2 is still based on Android Nougat – not even on Oreo. FYI, this is the only Mi Max device that has not got a single major Android version update. Let us take a look at the updates one by one.
