Xiaomi Mi A2 Android 10-based July security update begins rolling out (Download link inside)

Xiaomi’s Android One or rather, ‘Mi A’ series devices have been a tad disappointing. The company has failed to deliver on the promises that were made with the release of the Android One program. And after multiple botched attempts to bring Android 10 for the Mi A2, it’s clear Xiaomi isn’t all that interested in selling devices sans the MIUI skin.

Xiaomi has announced the new software update for the Mi A2 Global units. The update’s version is V11.0.12.0.QDIMIXM which is based on Android 10 and is currently rolling out via an OTA package. It brings the July security patch for the device along with some background optimizations.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 also received the June security update based on Android 10 last month. Thus, it shows that Xiaomi does not take security updates lightly for its Mi A series devices. But unfortunately for Mi A2 users, all future updates are expected to be based on Android 10 itself as it isn’t eligible for the upcoming Android 11 update.
