Earlier, it was allegedly confirmed by Xiaomi that the Android 10 update was not in the cards for the Mi A2 Lite. And reacting to this, hundred of Mi A2 Lite users signed a petition demanding Android 10 update for the device.
This impacted positively, as Xiaomi support, later assured that the Android 10 firmware was under development and will soon be pushed for the users.
