Google released the Android 11 operating system back in September. Ever since the OS came to the market, OEMs started working on their version of the Android 11 OS as they have to put in their custom UI on top as well. Xiaomi follows this trend in a quite different way. Notably, the MIUI update which is Xiaomi’s custom UI is not based on the current version of the Android OS. Meaning that your device need not run the latest Android OS in order to receive the latest MIUI update.
Poco which parted ways with Xiaomi at the beginning of this year has released a bunch of smartphones this year. The Poco C3 is the recent one that was launched back in October. Even though Poco is now an independent brand, it depends on Xiaomi for the rollout of the MIUI and Android OS updates. In this post, we will give you all the latest information about the Android 11 update for the Xiaomi Poco C3 smartphone. With that said, let us get straight into the article itself:
