Xiaomi Mi 10 Now Receiving Android 11 Update in India, Company Announces on Twitter

The Xiaomi Mi 10 is now getting Android 11 software update in India. The update although brings some news features, the overall interface of the smartphone remains the same as Xiaomi unveiled its latest Android-based MIUI 12 skin earlier this year that is already available on the Mi 10. The Mi 10 that debuted in May in India comes with Android 10 with MIUI 12 atop, out-of-the-box. The company shared the new development through a post on Twitter earlier today.

As per a user post on Twitter, the stable Android 11 update on Mi 10 is said to be 2.8GB in size, and it comes with the firmware version MIUI V12.2.2.0.RJBINXM. Users will be notified about the over-the-air (OTA) update automatically, however, they can check its availability manually by heading Settings > About phone > Updates. As mentioned, in terms of features, updates on Xiaomi devices are often dictated by their MIUI version and less by the Android version. Although, we expect that the phone is getting enhanced security options, and more details are expected once the company shares the official changelog.
