Redmi Note 7 Pro gets November security update in India, Android 10 a long way to go (Download link inside)
While OEMs are looking to push the latest December 2019 security patches for their devices as early as possible, there are still some devices that are still awaiting the November security patchset.
Though Xiaomi has a decent name when it comes to pushing of security or firmware updates, there are a few devices under its belt that have not yet received the November update let alone the December 2019 one.
However, the situation is gradually improving. One of the crowd pullers, i.e. Redmi Note 7 Pro, is getting the November security patchset along with some stability enhancements. Notably, the update is being pushed for the users in India.
For specs buff, the Redmi Note 7 Pro was unveiled in March 2019 and packs in some decent mid-ranger specs like Snapdragon 675 SoC, 4/6 GB of RAM, up to 128 GB of onboard storage and a sufficiently large 4,000 mAh battery.
In the camera department, you get a dual-camera setup with a 48 MP primary camera. The phone sports a 6.3-inch display and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as well.
Also, PiunikaWeb readers must remember that the device has already been served with the MIUI 11 update back in October that tagged along numerious improvements as well as October patch.
