Xiaomi Lists Down Smartphones that Will Get MIUI 11 Based on Android 10


Android 10 was announced recently and we have been expecting device manufacturers to reveal to us the list of their devices that will get this new version of Android. Xiaomi has unveiled its list and it is quite extensive and to be honest this is what we need and expect from other manufacturers too.

Xiaomi revealed this list yesterday as it unveiled the new Mi 9 Pro and the Mi Mix Alpha smartphones. At the same event, the company also showcased its latest custom interface, MIUI 11, that is based on Android 10. Isn’t it weird that MIUI iterations do not match the Android version they are based on, in this case, MIUI 11 is based on Android 10, that just bugs me.

With MIUI 11, users should expect a more polished UI with new features that were not there in the previous version. When rolling out MIUI 11, Xiaomi will do so starting with its latest devices before moving to the older ones.
