Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 5G grabs October security update without MIUI 11, Mi 9 gets November patch in Europe (Download links inside)

As we are approaching the end of 2019, Xiaomi has again made headlines with its Mi Note 10 smartphone. The reason being a massive 108 MP camera packed in with the device.

Though the device does not feature a top-of-the-line processor and sports a decent mid-ranger Snapdragon 730G SoC. But other major highlights of the device like a huge 5,260 mAh battery, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of onboard storage, penta camera setup at the back, makes this device a real head-turner.

Not only this, the company is on its toes in pushing the MIUI 11 updates and quite a few devices have already been ticked off from this list. Even the device running on Nougat (i.e. Mi Max 2) has been served with the 11th iteration of MIUI.

Side by side, Xiaomi is also rolling out timely security updates as well. And in a recent development, Mi MIX 3 5G and Mi 9 are reportedly getting October and November 2019 security updates, respectively.

Moreover, the update for Mi 9 is being pushed in the European region while the Mi MIX 3 5G grabs the update for global variants. Let us take a look at the updates one by one.

Mi 9

The new update that tags along November security update carries version number V11.0.6.0.QFAEUXM and weighs in about 470 MB for the OTA update. The global model has already been served with the latest patchset.
