Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G as a China-exclusive smartphone in late November 2020. The phone debuted with MIUI 12 based on Android 10. Now, four months after its release, this handset has started receiving the much-awaited Android 11 update.
In other words, this update is only available for a select few users. By limiting the rollout, Xiaomi can avoid any catastrophe if there are issues with the build. Anyway, all units should get this update in the coming days.
Although the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G is only available in China, this phone is sold with different names with some tweaks in certain regions. In India, this very same smartphone without NFC is called Mi 10i. Whereas, in Europe, this device with a 64MP primary camera (instead of 108MP) is called Mi 10T Lite.
All three handsets run near-identical MIUI build with some minor changes. The Mi 10T Lite was the first to get the Android 11 update in February. Now, the update is also available for the Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G.
Hence, the Mi 10i sold in India should be the next to get the Android 11MIUI 12.5 update.
