UPDATE: Here is the schedule for MIUI 11 rollout:
The wait would be over when Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi will uncover the list of its devices getting the MIUI 11 Global Stable ROM update based on Android 10 in the next 24 hours. At the same time, the company will launch the 64MP quad-camera phone, Redmi Note 8 Pro, in India. We have to see whether MIUI 11 release comes with Redmi Note 8 Pro out of the box or as an OTA update after the launch.
In China, Xiaomi started rolling out the open beta of MIUI 11 for a number of devices from September 27 onwards. Mi 9 and Redmi K20 Pro are the two devices that were included under the Android priority updates, so they are expected to get a stable update before other devices.
The rollout of the stable ROM (refined beta with the least possible bugs) is expected to take place in three batches.
The first batch of devices is expected to get the MIUI 11 update by mid-October. They include Xiaomi devices such as Xiaomi Mi 9/Mi 9T Pro, Mi 9 Explorer Edition, Mi 9 SE, Mi Mix 3, Mi CC9, Mi 8 Youth, Mi 8 Explorer Edition, Mi 8/Pro/Lite, and Mi Max 3; and Redmi devices such as Redmi K20 Pro, Redmi K20 Pro Premium Edition, Redmi K20, Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro, and Redmi 7.
The second batch of devices (relatively older) is expected to get the update by late-October. They include Xiaomi devices such as Mi 9 Pro 5G, Mi CC 9/CC 9E, Mi CC 9 Meitu Custom Version, Mi Mix 2, Mi MIX 2s, Mi CC9e, Mi Note 3, Mi 6, and Mi 6X; and Redmi devices such as Redmi 7A, Redmi Note 6/6 Pro, Redmi Note 5/5 Pro, Redmi Note 6A, Redmi 6, and Redmi S2.
The last batch of devices is expected to get the update by early-November. They include Xiaomi devices such as Xiaomi Mi Mix, Mi 5s, Mi 5s Plus, Mi 5X, Mi 5C, Mi Note 2, Mi Play, and Mi Max 2; and Redmi devices such as Redmi Note 8, Redmi Note 8 Pro, Redmi 5 Plus, Redmi 5, Redmi 5A, Redmi 4X, and Redmi Note 5A.
MIUI 11 brings a lot of interesting features such as a revamped always-on display, system-wide dark mode, new dynamic sound effects, a redesigned file manager, messaging app quick replies, a new Xiaomi Community app, and many more. MIUI 11 will also come with a file-sharing app that will work on Vivo and Oppo devices.
At the launch event of Redmi Note 8 Pro, Xiaomi is expected to reveal a number of other features that will come with the Android 10 based customised skin, MIUI 11. The rollout of the stable version globally might take a few more months.
