[Updated] Xiaomi Android 11 (MIUI 12) stable update set to arrive in September, list of internal testing & eligible devices surfaces
This story is being continuously updated…. New updates are being added at the bottom…..
Original story (from August 3) follows:
By now, we know that Android 11 is right around the corner. While Google winds up the development of the stable build of Android 11 for its Pixel line of phones which should be the first to bag this update, other OEMs are also working on their skinned versions of the same.
We have seen OnePlus working on Android 11-based OxygenOS 11 Beta and today, Xiaomi is also coming in to issue a list of eligible devices.
Unsurprisingly, the list is mainly comprised of Xiaomi devices launched within the past couple of years. They range from the company’s Mi-line devices, mid-range Redmi devices, and Mi Note devices among other devices from the company. The first stable MIUI 12 ROMs based on Android 11 are due to be released in September.
Xiaomi also sadly confirms that this is the end of the line for devices with the Snapdragon 845 like the Xiaomi Mi 8 and the Mi Mix 2s and as such, won’t be getting updated to Android 11.
Below is a list of Xiaomi devices on which Android 11 is currently being tested and their current state:
- Mi 10 | Open Beta – MIUI 12 based on Android 11 Beta 2.
- Mi 10 Pro | Open Beta – MIUI 12 based on Android 11 Beta 2.
