Xiaomi launched a new mid-range device under its Mi lineup recently on the 5th of January. Xiaomi named it the Xiaomi Mi 10i. The mid-range market is dominated by Oneplus Nord but Xiaomi plans to tide things in their way with the launch of the new Xiaomi Mi 10i.

Will Mi 10i 5G Get Android 12 Update?
As we know, this device came out of the box with Android 11 based on MIUI 12.5, and it is speculated that most probably at the end of 2021, users will get the Android 12 update on their new smartphone. However, if you are here to know the exact date, we regret it because there is currently no such news coming out from the official’s side.

It won’t justify if we are talking about whether this device meets the minimum requirement for the update or not because this is just launched. Anyway, if you still want to inspect if this device is eligible or not, then let’s hover to the specification section.
