As per a recent MIUI 12 beta 20.8.18 release note, the two devices i.e. Mi 10 Lite and Redmi K30 5G are temporarily suspended due to an Android version upgrade. Here is what the official release note says:
Due to the ongoing Android version upgrade Redmi K30 5G, Mi 10 Youth Edition are temporarily suspended.
A point to note here is that although it is not mentioned that Android 11 is the update for which both the models have been suspended, we speculate it is Android 11. Because, the duo came with Android 10 out of the box, and it only makes sense to prepare for a future upgrade. So, Android 11 it is. Moreover, other speculations are Xiaomi might also release MIUI 12 update alongside Android 11 for Mi 10 Lite and Redmi K30 5G in other regions.
Though it is not clear what Xiaomi has in its minds, we can only hope that Android 11 makes its way sooner for these devices. However, Xiaomi is not one such brand that stick to its words. So, we would advise our readers to take hold of your horses and let something official come up about the Android 11 update. We will keep our eyes open for any developments in this regard.
