When it comes to update, Xiaomi never misses an update but it seems this is about to change, probably due to too many devices launched in past couple of years.
The company has just announced on its forums that seven smartphones will stop receiving software support, meaning no MIUI 11 or any Global Beta in the future.
Back in 2017, it dropped software support for some devices that were launched in 2015 or before and towards the end of 2018 company announced it’s plan to drop MIUI support for various devices including Mi 4, Mi 5 and Redmi Note 3 Pro.
The full list includes;
- Redmi Note 4
- Redmi 3S
- Redmi 3X
- Redmi 3S Prime
- Redmi 4 series
- Redmi 4A
- Redmi Note 3 Special Edition
- Redmi Pro
The Mi Community Admin said that the normal upgrade for other devices will not be affected for the time being.
