In addition to bringing Android 10 to its high-end MIUI-equipped handsets, Xiaomi has finally begun releasing the operating system for the Mi A2, an intermediate smartphone that is part of the Android One program.
The 220.127.116.11.QDIMIXM version update is being released via over-the-air globally, but in batches. Thus, the tendency is that some smartphone users have to wait a little longer to receive the news. The recipients of the update are being notified via news, but you can tell if the system is already available for your device by going to the settings and looking for updates.
The update for Android 10 on Xiaomi Mi A2 occupies about 1.3 GB in storage and also features the December operating system security patches from Google. When it comes to features, the main news is the arrival of navigation gestures, dark mode and privacy enhancements, as described in the update.
Slim design and good performance are smartphone highlights
Mi A3 has not received an update yet
Mi A2 is part of the Android One program and uses a pure version of Android, which comes with no interface changes like MIUI. The arrival of the update surprised users because the device released in 2018 was awarded Android 10 before its successor, the Mi A3.
Also powered by the pure version of Android, the Mi A3 is expected to receive the latest edition of Google's operating system soon. Recently, Xiaomi released the smartphone OS kernel as well as the Mi A2 kernel, implying that the update is coming soon.
After Mi A2 finally gets Android 10, the trend is that it doesn't take long for the system to arrive on Mi A3. In recent days, several users have complained about the delay of the update and even made online petitions against Xiaomi, after all, in theory, Android One phones should be covered with new editions of Android more quickly.
