More experienced users of Chinese smartphones Xiaomi they already know that support for custom superstructure updates is really exemplary. Older devices also receive the latest version MIUI, but it starts to get worse with the operating system Android.
Major operating system updates are normally supported for 2 years from the launch of the smartphone. While some manufacturers have no problem offering 3 years of updates, others have a problem with the usual two. How's Xiaomi?
Support for Android 11
Many smartphone manufacturers bring the latest features and gadgets to their own superstructures before they appear in Android itself. Although in many cases everything goes as it should, it may happen that some things do not go according to the manufacturer's ideas.
In this case, support for these new features directly from Google through implementation to the operating system will often help. Although MIUI Xiaomi updates in a truly exemplary manner, the same cannot be said of the Android operating system.
On the other hand, we can't blame the manufacturer for that. Upgrading a smartphone with such a massive superstructure as MIUI to a new version of the OS is much more difficult than, for example, the OnePlus, which offers almost pure Android.
As for the new generation of the operating system, the main things should be better and more detailed settings of permissions granted to applications, more functions and smarter use of notifications or special floating windows.
According to preliminary estimates, the following models would they shouldn't get update to the operating system Android 11. Some devices are "right" in the list, while others surprised us unpleasantly. We remind you that these are not official reports, but only assumptions.
