Original story (published on February 19, 2020) follows:

Probably the most confused smartphone users in the smartphone market are the users of the Xiaomi Mi A3. It all started when Xiaomi revealed that the Android 10 update for the Mi A3 was supposed to roll out in mid-February.

Later it was rolled out to select users but, there was no confirmation from the users itself. However, Xiaomi insisted that some units have already received the update.

Then according to one of the user reports, Android 10 update for Mi A3 was almost confirmed by Xiaomi India chat support that the update will indeed arrive in mid-February.


In line with this confusion, as reported by us, according to a conversation between a user and Xiaomi’s customer support, it came out that the Android 10 was rolled out only for beta testing.

Cut to now, in a recent development, according to some of the user tweets, the Mi A3 Android 10 ‘Bug Megathread‘ went live for some time but then, it was quickly removed.

This is some great news for the users of Mi A3 as this also hints that the Android 10 update is imminent for the device.

Interestingly, the person who published this thread isn’t apparently someone from the team. Though, the structuring and language of the thread that can be seen in the screenshot does appear like an official one.

But at the moment, there is no confirmation as yet whether the bug megathread that went live was published by someone from the Xiaomi team or not, creating a sense of confusion among the users.
