Shocking! 6 Redmi devices to NOT get any Android update from now
Xiaomi is ending support for 6 Redmi devices that also sold in India. These phones won’t even get the MIUI updates.
Xiaomi isn't known for updating its smartphone quite often, and most of its devices have limited software support cycle. Most devices reach their end of software support cycle within 3 years and in 2022, some of Xiaomi's popular devices from the Redmi lineup have completed their journey. Hence, in Xiaomi's latest updated list of devices being left for good, some of the popular Redmi devices from 2019 are let go of software support. Most of these devices can be still found in use and those using these phones should look to upgrade.
The updated list of EOS devices now include some the most popular Redmi devices you can find around. Xiaomi won't be giving the MIUI 13 updates to these devices as well as the software security patch. Hence, those concerned with privacy and security should look to upgrade their device to a newer model. As of now, Xiaomi is among the very few brands with the least number of software updates, even for its high-end devices.
These Redmi devices won't get future MIUI 13 updates
As part of the list, here are all the devices that won't get any future update:
Redmi Note 7
Redmi Note 7S
Redmi Note 7 Pro
Mi 9 SE
Mi Pad 4
Mi Pad 4 Plus
In this list, the Redmi K20 belongs from the premium range of Redmi devices, and was essentially the same as the Redmi K20 Pro, except for the chipset. It is surprising to see the Redmi K20 Pro not being part of this list, considering the phone was launched alongside the standard variant. The K20 Pro was Xiaomi's flagship in India in 2019 and was succeeded by the Xiaomi Mi 10 5G in 2020.
