List of Android 11 Supported Xiaomi Mi and Redmi Devices

 

Xiaomi has grown tremendously over the years and has grabbed their market share, not only in India but across the world. Xiaomi has been on its way to delivering the Android 10 update to its devices but the rollout is far from over and there are a bunch of devices that are still waiting to be upgraded to Android 10. On the other hand, Google has already started testing the Android 11 operating system in full swing and has already released the Android 11 Developer Preview 2 for the developers. The users of Xiaomi are already pretty excited to know which devices will be getting the update.

Note that Xiaomi was not among those OEMs that came with a dedicated Android 10 update roadmap and stuck with it and updated the devices in the list almost on time. For Android 11, we can expect Xiaomi to push an official update roadmap that will not only keep the users clear about when they will be getting the update but also helps us to track down the update. So, that being said, let us get straight into the post where we will keep you posted about all the latest developments, related to Android 11 for Xiaomi smartphones:

Pocophone F1

Update as of September 19: Poco or Pocophone F1 too is out of support and thus, it won’t get Android 11. For this, there are two custom ROMs that are available here based on Android 11. The XDA Developer member ‘riteshsaxena’ developed the custom Android 11-based ReloadedOS for Poco F1 which is now available for download here.

Update as of September 22: A few months ago, a Xiaomi mod floated the idea of Poco F1 running on Android 11 as the build would be in the works. Cut to today, the same mod practically confirmed that Poco F1 will get Android 11. He mentioned that Poco F1 has already received two major updates as promised and anything above will be a bonus. Further, the device is likely to get its third major update although later than the new devices getting Android 11. This makes for a huge celebration given that Poco F1 was a smash hit flagship phone at 1/3rd of a flagship and getting the third consecutive update would really upgrade its prowess as a flagship phone as well. [Source]

Update as of November 24: When asked about the further updates on Poco F1 including the Poco Launch 3.0, MIUI 13, Android 11 and more, a moderator commented on the same. According to the mod, the incremental MIUI update on-board V12 could arrive sometime this month or next with bug fixes and a security patch along with it. The device is already two years old which makes its frequency of getting updates very low. A mod replied that he has seen the rumor of Poco F1 running Android 11 so if that’s true, Poco F1 users will be in a treat. The response does mention that if at all the device gets Android 11, it will be sometime in 2021 which is in-line with devices running SD84 such as OnePlus 6 and 6T. 

Asking about MIUI 13, the Poco F1 will probably get the upgrade although it is to be seen how it goes into development. Earlier, Xiaomi mentioned that it ships 2 major Android OS upgrades and 3 MIUI updates on flagship phones and by that logic, Poco F1 should get MIUI 13 as well. Finally, the Poco Launcher 3.0, it is being reported that the developer team is working on adapting the Navigation Bar & Gestures on-board Android 10 although there’s not much information available about it. [Source 1]

Update as of March 23: Well, turns out the fate of Poco F1 to get their hands on MIUI 12.5 is still dangling as the device has already received MIUI 12 and waiting for the MIUI 12.5 upgrade.
