Today is the last date of the first phase of the Android 10-based MIUI 11 Global Stable ROM rollout program of Xiaomi. As promised, the Chinese OEM has rolled out the MIUI 11 update to Redmi 7, the only remaining phone in the first phase of the staged rollout.
Many users over the internet have started sharing screenshots of the MIUI 11 update received on their devices. The update comes with the October Android security patch. However, disappointingly the 1.7GB-sized MIUI 11 update with build number MIUI v220.127.116.11PFLINXM on Redmi 7 devices is based on Android 9 Pie instead of Android 10.
The changelog of the update suggests a design overall of the OS, better touch quality, and improved optimisation for full-screen display. This apart, the update has brought other interesting features such as dynamic font scaling, latest sound and animation effects, Game Turbo, Quick replies, and direct print option for photos and documents without the help of any third-party app.
In the last two days of the first phase, Xiaomi has rolled out the MIUI 11 Global Stable ROM for Redmi K20 Pro (Build number v18.104.22.168.QFKINXM), Redmi Y3 (Build number v22.214.171.124.PFFINXM), and POCO F1 (Build number v126.96.36.199.PEJMIXM) apart from the latest inclusion of Redmi 7. Among them, the MIUI 11 updates rolled out to Redmi K20 Pro and Redmi Y3 are based on Android 10. However, the update rolled out to POCO F1 is based on Android 9 Pie instead of Android 10 similar to Redmi 7. We do not yet know the underlying reason behind that.
However, as we have noted earlier, the mass users will not receive the OTA package yet as the rollout program is meant for the beta testers of MIUI 11 as of now. That means it is targeted at all the users who were enrolled in the MIUI 11 Global Stable Beta Testing program announced a few days after the Redmi Note 8 Pro launch this month. As far as the public rollout is concerned, it is expected to begin in 2 or 3 weeks.
Previously, Xiaomi has released the stable version of MIUI 11 to Redmi 7A (surprisingly the first to receive but it was originally included in the third phase of the updates), Mi 9T aka Redmi K20 in India, Redmi Note 7 Pro, and Mi CC9 in China that is rebranded as Mi 9 Lite in Europe.
