Redmi K20 has started getting Android 10-based MIUI 11 update. This OTA or over the air update for the phone has the build number MIUI V126.96.36.199.QFJCNXM. While it is a bit heavy at 2.3GB, it is well worth it! Currently, the update is being rolled out in China and the global rollout is expected to happen soon after. Xiaomi recently finished its MIUI 11 Global Stable ROM rollout program. Although Redmi K20 was part of the first phase of the roll-out, it received the update to the MIUI custom skin based on Android 9 Pie instead of Android 10.
You may remember Xiaomi pushing stable MIUI 11 updates quite recently. However, that was based on Android 9. The company then started to bring MIUI 11 update based on Android 10. They intend to start with Redmi K20. After China, one of the first markets to receive this update is likely to be India.
Redmi K20 Update
The K20 by Xiaomi was released in July last year. The smartphone runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box. This latest update is all about the Android 10-based update to the MIUI skin. It brings tons of new features to the device while working to admirably enhance security, privacy, and software stability. Popular features that will come with the update include Mi-Go travel kit, Mi work kit, and dynamic font and sound system.
The Redmi K20 Pro received the same update in September of last year. However, the regular variant is all set to receive the update as well. With Android 10, users would be able to enjoy more privacy controls, system-wide dark mode, bubble notifications, smart reply, hierarchy-based system notifications and more. There will also be a new gesture navigation mode. You will also be able to use the focus mode which lets the users silence certain apps that are intrusive or disturbing.
How to download Android 10-based MIUI 11 update
All things considered, we think Xiaomi’s global launch will happen quite soon. If you have a Redmi K20 device, it is advised that you keep an eye open for updates. You will be able to check by visiting the About Phone tab within your Settings menu. Navigate to System Update tab. If any update is available, you will be able to view it here. You can then easily download and install it. If you are planning to install a major update, it is highly recommended that you take a backup of your device data and media.
Regarding the Android 10 update on your Redmi K20, you will receive an update notification automatically. This update is expected to integrate all the new features that Google has introduced. However, since MIUI is heavily skinned, you may notice some features getting implemented differently in Xiaomi devices compared to devices running on stock Android. The download shouldn’t take a long time to download and install. If you have the same device, you are in for some luck!
