Xiaomi Mi A1 Android 10 update arrives as official LineageOS 17.1 (Download link inside)
Xiaomi Mi A1 came out in 2017 with Android 7.1.2 OS out of the box and as promised by the OEM under the Android One program, it has received its two major OS updates in the form of Android Oreo and Pie, meaning Mi A1 Android 10 update is far from reality.
Matter of fact, Xiaomi has officially confirmed that no Android 10 update is in the pipeline for Xiaomi Mi A1. Seeing one last update (Android 10), thousands of Mi A1 users signed a petition on Change.org. However, it went in vain as the device is officially not eligible for Android 10.
