Original story (published on March 07, 2020) follows:
The first thing that comes to our minds when we talk about Xiaomi Mi A3 is probably the delayed Android 10 update for the phone.
It was a time to rejoice for the users, as the long-awaited Android 10 was finally pushed for the handset. Unfortunately, the update was pulled back by Xiaomi citing several bugs and issues as the reason behind it.
However, users who installed the buggy Android 10 updates on there Mi A3 started reporting broken in-display fingerprint sensors among many other issues. The developers stated that the update will be rolled out again, once all the bugs are fixed.
Users who were thinking to rollback to Android 9 Pie were officially warned by the company, that rolling back from Android 10 to Pie would cause an adverse effect on their Mi A3 (Mi A2).
After all this confusion and mess, in line with what the developers said, the bugfix update for the handset was finally released. The catch here was, the update was pushed only for the users who previously enrolled for the beta program.
This move by Xiaomi left the users annoyed and it seems that everything has gone back to square one. But, going by the latest developments, as per the screenshots shared by one of the users, the stable Android 10 update might take a while to arrive on Mi A3.
