Original story (published on November 18, 2020) follows:
The wait was now on for the Android 11 update and it was expected to arrive for the Redmi Note 9S, which is known as the Redmi Note 9 Pro in India, in early 2021.
Now, it seems that the Indian Redmi Note 9 Pro variant, which is completely different from the global Redmi Note 9 Pro variant, is already getting the latest OS update.

While this update is meant for the Indian Redmi Note 9 Pro variant, the global Redmi Note 9S variant is now expected to get the same in the near future.
However, this is still based on our speculation as the OEM has not made any official announcements about the global Redmi Note 9S and Redmi Note 9 Pro variants so far.
It is still good to see that the OEM is already rolling out the latest OS update to the Redmi Note 9 Pro in India.
The Redmi K30 Pro has bagged the Android 11 update only in China but a recent development has made matters confusing about the Poco F2 Pro Android 11 update.
That said, we will keep tracking the development of Xiaomi’s Android 11 update and will provide more details once new information becomes available.
