These are the Xiaomi smartphones that are slated to get Android Q

Xiaomi Mi 9

Android Q is almost here with us.

In fact, for a number of users of the 24 smartphones that are eligible to test drive it before its official rollout in a few months, that reality is a lot closer.

For Xiaomi, Android Q is already being tested on a number of its smartphones. Three, to be exact. Two from its main brand and one, a new one, from its sub-brand, Redmi.

The three include the Xiaomi Mi 9, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G and the Redmi K20 Pro.

That much has been in the public domain for a while now.

So, what about the rest?

Starting in the final quarter of the year (i.e. from September), according to the information posted on the company’s Mi forums (translation required), the trio will be joined by the following devices:

  • Xiaomi Mi 9 SE
  • Xiaomi Mi 8
  • Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro
  • Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition
  • Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S
  • Xiaomi Mi MIX 3
  • Redmi K20

Later on, starting in January 2020, the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro will also receive their Android 10 updates.

A glaring omission from this list is the critically acclaimed Pocophone F1, a device from Xiaomi’s other sub-brand that shook the smartphone market last year.

However, since this list is not final and many more devices could be added to it in coming days, fingers are crossed that the device makes it especially since the Xiaomi executive confirming this news on Twitter heads it.
