A list of Xiaomi’s smartphones that will not receive Android 11 has been published. The list is full of inexpensive and therefore super popular models of the Redmi 7 and Redmi 8 lines.
These are the popular Xiaomi/Redmi phones that will not get Android 11
Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro and eight more Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones will not receive Android 11. The complete list of devices is as follows:
- Xiaomi Mi CC9e
- Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi Note 8T, Redmi Note 8
- Redmi-Note 7 Pro, Redmi Note 7/7S
- Redmi 8, Redmi 8A Dual, Redmi 8A
- Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G
- Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha
The source notes that, firstly, the list is up-to-date, and secondly, Mi Mix 3 and Mi Mix Alpha are at the end of their life cycle, that is, they are simply removed (or have already been discontinued) from production.
It is worth to mention that although these smartphones will not get Android 11, They will get the latest MIUI 12 user interface based on the current version of Android installed on them.
On the list of new features, we have a Dark Mode 2.0, application menu, Ultra Power Saving Mode, but also the Super Wallpaper where we find wallpapers with complex 3D animations. We also have improved health metrics, as well as more careful control over privacy settings. There is also news in the camera application, and on the multitasking, which now includes floating windows on the screen and Picture in Picture mode.
Xiaomi has attached great importance to animations on its interface. They created multiple overlapping layers for a much more realistic blur. This makes translucent animations much more pleasing to the eye and realistic.
Also, MIUI 12 renews the settings interface, an unusual change by Xiaomi, which does not usually alter the interface of the phone too much. It has a simpler design in these settings, in addition to being more visual. It will allow users to move comfortably in them. Along with this new interface, more animations are available when performing actions, such as pressing a button or moving elements.
In April, MIUI 12 was presented at an online event in China. Xiaomi thus presented the new version of its interface that beings a series of new functions. After this presentation, the brand was already launching the first beta of this new interface for a series of phones. It was available only in China. But, earlier in May, the international presentation of the interface has already been held. MIUI 12 Global is official and we already know the news that the new interface of Xiaomi brings us. It has begun to be available shortly to the phones of the Xiaomi and Redmi brands worldwide.
