With the official and final arrival of Android 12 , manufacturers begin to make their update projects public. For now Xiaomi has not given information in this regard, but we can anticipate based on the leaks and the time that smartphones have been on the market.
This latest version of Android is one of the ones that involves the most changes on a visual level, borrowing some things from MIUI. However, we come across a version that leaves several flagship smartphones out of the game. If you have one of the following mobiles, you will have to come up with ROMs to enjoy the latest version of the most popular operating system.
Xiaomi phones that do not update to Android 12
The list has smartphones of all ranges and prices, although we want to insist that for now they have not been confirmed. However, Xiaomi does not usually leave too many surprises in terms of support and updates to smartphones, once the two years established by the law have passed, or even before, they forget about Android for them.
We share the list of smartphones that are called to run out of Android 12:
- Xiaomi Mi 9
- Xiaomi Mi 9 SE
- Xiaomi Mi 9 Lite
- Xiaomi Mi 9T
- Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro
- Xiaomi Mi Note 10
- Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro
- Redmi 9
- Redmi 9A
- Redmi 9AT
- Redmi 9C
- Redmi Note 8
- Redmi Note 8T
- Redmi Note 8 Pro
- Redmi Note 7
- Xiaomi Mi A3
As we can see, the list does not leave old glories that are still very present among users. Surely you know someone who continues to use their Redmi Note 8 or Redmi Note 7, but unfortunately these smartphones will become obsolete if the software stops receiving security patches and Android 12 news, dying along with Android 11.
On the other hand, it also highlights the presence of the latest Xiaomi Android One that was still alive in terms of updates. The Mi A3 that suffered so many inconveniences with Android 11 does not seem like it is going to live it again in Android 12, since it will not have the slightest opportunity to update to the latest version . Other models that are left out are the Mi Note 10, a series of smartphones that could have happen very soon.
And what about MIUI 13?
While with the updates to Android the Chinese manufacturer is much more strict, it tends to give many more possibilities with MIUI. We still do not know much about MIUI 13, but once it arrives, we could be surprised that some Xiaomi are updated even if it remains inside with the software in Android 11.
Most of Xiaomi’s changes have a place in its customization layer and as long as these updates keep coming, we can continue to be relatively happy with the terminal. An important update, which will bring a jump combined with the corresponding security patch.
