Similarly, the Mi A2 Lite has also got under the radar and the Android 10 update for the device has been halted by Xiaomi due to several bugs and issues that showed up after the update.

Taking a look back, the Android 10 update for the Mi A2 Lite, saw the light of the day in the second week of March, after hundreds of users signed an online petition demanding the Android 10 update for the phone.

Just, when everyone thought that they have dealt with the task, multiple users reported that the Android 10 update turned out to be a buggy one, and has bricked their Mi A2 Lite units.
