Xiaomi Mi CC9/Mi 9 Lite Android 10 update arrives as MIUI 11 beta (Download link inside)
Xiaomi released the camera-centric Mi CC9 in China in July and a month later, this same phone went global but with a tweaked name, the Mi 9 Lite. That’s classic Xiaomi, in case you didn’t know, but that’s not the purpose of this article.
Even though the Mi CC9 software is maintained differently from the Mi 9 Lite software, the similarities between the two phones mean that whatever happens to their software is related.
The Mi 9 Lite, having arrived to the party late, received its first software update in late September. It has since picked up a couple of other updates, with the most recent one tagging along the stable MIUI 11 update.
Now, in a new software update that is now rolling out to the Mi CC9 in China, owners of this device can finally try the new Android 10 OS, albeit in beta. The update, as expected, is based on MIUI 11.
The Mi 9 Lite Android 10 update is arriving as MIUI 11 beta version 9.11.12 and yeah, this version isn’t meant for the global and European models. Besides bumping the software to the new OS, you also get the latest security patch for November 2019 as part of the update.
