Original story (published on November 10, 2020) follows:

Xiaomi might not be as fast as Google when it comes to pushing Android OS updates to its devices, but the company surely has come a long way.

Today, the Chinese vendor boasts quite a significant number of devices already on Android 11, be it in beta or stable version. The Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, for instance, already bagged the beta stable version.

The Redmi K30 Pro, also known as Poco F2 Pro outside China, also has the beta stable version available for select users. There is a bunch of other devices already testing the firmware.

Due to the major version upgrade of Android, Redmi 10X, Redmi 10X Pro, and Redmi K30 Ultra will be suspended for internal testing from 11.10, thank you for your understanding.
