Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, and Redmi K30 Pro were the first devices to pick up the AOSP builds of the Android 11 beta updates back in June when the official Android 11 update was in the beta stage. Later, Xiaomi was quick on its toes to push the Android 11 with MIUI 12 on top for the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro. Moreover, since then, a bunch of Xiaomi and Poco units has already grabbed Android 11 updates in China or in other regions. This post will give you all the details about the Android 11 development for the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra smartphone. Well, Xiaomi has its own peculiar way of handling Android OS updates.
Unlike other OEMs, Xiaomi’s MIUI is not based on the current version of Android. In fact, it pushes both Android 11 and MIUI updates separately. Meaning that while there will be some Xiaomi devices receiving MIUI update based on the latest Android OS, whereas there will be some devices that will pickup up the latest MIUI custom UI update based on the older version of Android OS. So, a dedicated Android 11 update tracker for the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra will give you clarity and will keep you informed about the latest developments regarding Android 11. With that said, let us get straight into the article itself:
