It hasn't been very long since these phones launched. Redmi 7 launched in March 2019, and Redmi Y3 the following htmonth. Redmi 6A and Redmi 6 are slightly older with both phones having launched in June, 2018.

Redmi 7 and Redmi Y3 have received only MIUI 11 so far as both phones launched with MIUI 10. As for the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A, these phones launched with MIUI 9 and have been updated to MIUI 11. Xiaomi has been providing OS updates even for its older phones so it's surprising for the company to not include phones which are just slightly dated.
