While we’re not quite done with Android Pie updates on many phones, others are already riled up about Android Q. And recently, Xiaomi, too, released a list of smartphones in line to get the Android Q update. The list also presents the timeline as to when they’ll receive the updates. And according to that, ten smartphones will be getting the update before the end of 2019. And two of them will have to wait until the Q1 of 2020.

That list includes the flagships of Xiaomi. Namely, phones like Xiaomi Mi 9, Xiaomi Mi 9 SE, Xiaomi Mi 8, Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition, etc. The list also contains premium phones like Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, and the new “flagship killers” like Redmi K20, and Redmi K20 Pro. These are the ones to get the update in the Q4 of 2019. Xiaomi, however, has scheduled the update for the mid-rangers, Redmi Note 7 and Note 7 Pro for Q1 of 2020. So, if you have a Redmi Note 7, you will get it, which is, good news.

And yes, Android Q update is a major attraction here. But that’s not the only “treat” for Xiaomi users. They will also get the MIUI 11 update, Xiaomi’s new custom skin on top of Android OS. In addition, the new UI is said to come with a ton of improved features. Primarily, there will be updated icons and animations and a new power saving mode. Furthermore, there will be changes to the status bar to accommodate phones with notches as well.

Now, after this list, Pocophone F1 users are also probably looking forward with great anticipation. And even though the phone is not in this list, Pocophone Global Head, Alvin Tse himself confirmed that Poco device would also be getting Android Q! In a post on Twitter enlisting all the Xiaomi smartphones eligible for the update, Tse commented, “We will get to Q”. However, Tse didn’t reveal when the update would actually arrive. But still, better late than never, right?
