Xiaomi refused to update a bunch of cool smartphones to Android 11

The irresponsibility that is characteristic of most manufacturers of smartphones on Android. Many of them sincerely believe that the consumer will experience coming through again, two monthly security patches, will wait for the adaptation of the next versions of Android for six months and do not resent if they are all this to deprive. Is it possible, think of some? Of course, it happens. But if the interruptions with updates still possible to endure, then the end of support even new devices – no longer exists.

Xiaomi has no plans to upgrade even some new smartphones

How Google will change the connection to Wi-Fi Android 11

Xiaomi has never been a stable support for their smartphones. Could she refuse to upgrade yet not quite a old devices, which just turned a year. So probably few people noticed that this year, Xiaomi has decided to end software support from more than a dozen devices. In addition to models polutoraletney ago, which seems already so it’s time to retire, the list was frankly new devices, which are still very popular.

What Xiaomi smartphones will not get Android 11

Redmi Note 8 — less than a year, and his support has stopped

Just look at the list of smartphones that Android does not Shine 11:

  • Redmi Note 7, Note 7 Pro, Note 7s
  • Redmi Note 8, Note Pro 8, Note 8T
  • Xiaomi Mi CC9e
  • 8 Redmi, Redmi Dual 8A, 8A Redmi
  • Xiaomi Mi 3 Mix 5G
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha

Google will ban beauty modes of cameras in Android 11

As you can see, the oldest in this list was the lineup Redmi Note 7. When I found out that Xiaomi refuses to support it, I thought that, overall, nothing catastrophic there. After all these machines for 2 years, and hence to claim 11 Android they cannot. But what was my surprise when I found out that in January alone, the classic “seven” turned a year, and the other modifications that came with a noticeable delay, and even less. Just with the release of new models Redmi, the Chinese are not waiting a whole year, and are limited to 6-9 months, hence the slight shift in the perception of their true age.

Problems Redmi Note 8

Redmi Note 8 is newer than 7 Redmi Note, because Xiaomi introduced the updated lineup of only at the end of August 2019, the year. It turns out that at the moment when it is already known that the update Redmi Note 8 does not Shine, it was not even one year. No, I can understand that there may be some restrictions on the update smartphones four – and five-year-old. But the fact that Xiaomi is not possible to update a year old device, I sincerely refuse to believe. Most likely, the Chinese just did not want to adapt Android 11 for processors MediaTek, which runs almost the entire line of Redmi Note 8 and which has become the reason for the ban on flashing.

Xiaomi Mix Alpha is a non — smartphone, so no one will be upset if he doesn’t get Android 11

As for Mi Mix 3 and Mix 5G Alpha, here almost no complaints, although this is the most that neither is a flagship. Practice has shown that Mi Mix 3 5G practically no demand, and to adapt Android 11 for the sake of those couple of thousand people who have bought this model, it is clearly not economically feasible. Undoubtedly, it would be better if Xiaomi has just released an update, but as those who would be especially indignant, almost no, there is no reason to upgrade.

What smartphones can install Android 11

Alpha Mix is a different story altogether. Despite the fact that it seems like it was planned to sell for 3 thousand dollars, he did not, and remained a showcase model – an indication that they are capable of the Chinese. Does it change something? In my opinion, no. Xiaomi refers to its customers as to owned her resource that she has the right to dispose of as she wants. Today, the company produces the smartphone, and cuts the money on it, and tomorrow just stops to update it and release a new. And so it will continue exactly as long as we ourselves allow it.
