Gizchina News of the week
The Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 5G version only recently went on sale in Switzerland. For now, the users of this smartphone are quite a few. As expected, the new Google system will come with a couple of new features including full-screen swipe gestures, dark theme and more. As a beta update, we will generally expect some bugs but this is the third beta release thus the system is expected to be quite clean. Although this beta is primarily for app testing by developers, you can still have it installed if you want to have a first feel of the Android Q system. Nevertheless, you may want to be careful with installing this update.
The likes of Sony, OnePlus, Nokia, LG, Asus, Vivo, and Xiaomi are all scheduled to receive this update as it lands. All Pixel phones including the maiden Google Pixel will get this update.
