Xiaomi has become the company that sells the most mobiles in Europe, and a big part of its success lies in very competitive terminals at really low prices and with very special update support.
Without neglecting the Android experience, the main objective of Xiaomi with its update policy focuses on the experience of its MIUI personalization layer, a layer that in 2020 received its twelfth version, which would reach several dozen mobiles . Apparently, the final list will be shorter, and that’s because some models that were on the list just dropped.
These Redmi phones will ultimately not receive MIUI 12
When Xiaomi introduced MIUI 12, it made a list of mobiles that would end up being updated to the new version of the personalization layer, regardless of which version of Android they had. At that time, Xiaomi was very ambitious in covering many models without actually having an estimated timeline for updating each mobile (unlike Samsung, which took longer but we have an estimated date for each model).
Redmi 6A, the cheapest mobile that remains outside of MIUI 12.
Today we know some models that ultimately will not receive the update, and it is that Xiaomi has canceled the update for the following mobiles:
- Redmi Y3.
- Redmi 7.
- Redmi 6 and 6A.
As confirmed by the company itself, the cancellation of MIUI 12 for these mobiles is linked to “Performance and compatibility issues”
If you are the owner of one of these models and you are not happy with Xiaomi’s decision, you may think that the brand is not worth it. Ultimately, it’s very common for any brand to take less interest in its cheaper, older models, and that’s not just in the interest of selling new mobiles, but because it really is. software optimization is a very expensive process, both in the development cycle and at the monetary level, which is impractical for these low-end mobiles.
