Redmi K20 gets the Android 11 update in China


Xiaomi launched the Redmi K20 in India and China while the company brought the same device as Xiaomi Mi 9T in other regions like Europe. The device, irrespective of regions, came with MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie out of the box. Now, it has finally started getting the Android 11 update.

The Redmi K20 is getting a MIUI update with firmware version V12.1.1.0.RFJCNXM in China. This build upgrades the device’s OS to the latest Android 11. If you recall, the device got the first big update, i.e, Android 10, reasonably quickly after the official announcement.

Anyway, the update is 2.6GB in size and also comes with the February 2021 security patch. Do note that this is the Chinese build so this particular update is compatible only with phones selling in China (codename: davinci). In case you don’t know, the Indian version of this device is codenamed ‘davinciin’.

Hence, users will have to be patient till Xiaomi extends the update to other regions like India and Europe which I don’t think is that far now. Also, if you had noticed, the MIUI version is still MIUI 12 so another major UI update for the MIUI 12.5 version

should take a while to reach the device.

That said, the MIUI 12.5 update could be the last major update for the Redmi K20 since it has already got two major MIUI (MIUI 11, MIUI 12) and two major Android upgrades(Android 10 & 11) now.

Either way, the update is in the ‘stable beta’ stage meaning only a few users will get it initially. After ensuring that the update doesn’t have any major bugs, Xiaomi will likely push the update to everyone in a few days.


It’s also worth noting that the ‘Pro’ sibling, Redmi K20 Pro, or its European version Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro hasn’t gotten the Android 11 update yet.
