Xiaomi has confirmed that it will be updating as many as 28 of its devices to MIUI 11. The update has started hitting Xiaomi devices in a phased manner beginning October end (from October 22 and will be completed by the end of this year. Even though it has set aside to-be-updated phones into phases, the actual rollout seems to be following its own course. The Redmi Note 8 Pro is a classic example.
Phones like the Redmi Note 6 Pro, Redmi 7A and Redmi Note 8 were supposed to be updated to MIUI 11 in the ongoing phase 3 (November 13-November 29) but a few of these devices have already received it ahead of schedule – which isn’t a bad thing at all.
