[Updated] Xiaomi testing Android 11 on Mi 9, Mi 9 Pro & Mi 9T Pro/Redmi K20 Pro; global Mi 8 bags stable MIUI 12 update (Download link inside)
New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on November 02, 2020) follows:
Now, some new development appears to be taking place as more devices are being tested with the Android 11 update.
Internal Android 11 testing might have started for the Mi 9, Mi 9 Pro, and Mi 9T Pro (aka Redmi K20 Pro) in China.
The information comes from the MIUI Updates Tracker Telegram channel which has proven to be a credible source.
However, the info should still be taken with a pinch of salt until the download links for the beta ROMs become available.
We will update this post once more details are available but it is safe to assume that Xiaomi might indeed be working on Android 11 for the Mi 9, Mi 9 Pro, and Mi 9T Pro (aka Redmi K20 Pro).
This is simply due to the fact that all devices in question have received only one OS update so far and are eligible to receive one more.
Apart from this, the global Mi 8 units have now received the stable MIUI 12 update and the download link for the same is also available.
So, those who want to install the latest custom skin manually on their Mi 8 can grab it from the download link given below after the changelog.
