New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on June 29, 2020) follows:
Android 11 is the new talk of the town, at least for those enthusiastic enough to keep an eye on every new release, beta or stable. Naturally, many Xiaomi fans are eager to know if and when their devices will receive Android 11 update.
Google announced the first developer preview version in March and has since released the first public beta version. Unlike the former, the latter can be used by anyone willing to test the waters ahead of the stable release probably beginning September.
But being an unfinished version of the OS, access to this firmware is still limited to a certain group of phones from various device vendors. Google, OnePlus, OPPO, Vivo, and Xiaomi already have devices in the program and in this article, we keep track of the latter’s progress, be it beta or stable releases.
Last year, Xiaomi enrolled the Mi 9 and Mi MIX 3 5G into the Android Q beta program. This year, more devices are taking part in the early beta testing program, meaning they already have access to the latest Android 11 Beta 1.
Below is a table showing all Xiaomi smartphones that have received the beta or stable update to Android 11. We will continuously update the table to reflect the latest changes whenever a new device picks up the OS, again, beta or stable.
|Device/Android 11 update||BETA||STABLE|
|Mi 10 Pro||Released||—|
|Redmi K30 Pro||Released||—|
|Poco F2 Pro||Coming soon||—|
For an idea of Xiaomi devices that are likely to be upgraded to Android 11, probably beginning later this year, check out this article.
