MIUI 11 rolling out to the Redmi K20 and Redmi 7A in India
Xiaomi officially unveiled MIUI 11 late last month at an event in China. Since then, beta versions of the software have already rolled out to a number of devices. These include the Xiaomi Mi 8, the Mi Mix 2S, and the Mi Mix 3. We also learned that Xiaomi was planning to roll out Android 10 based builds for these devices. Following that, the company rolled out an Android 10-based beta build for the Mi 9 SE. And now, the company is rolling out a stable build of MIUI 11 to the Redmi K20 and the Redmi 7A in India.
As per a recent post on Xiaomi’s forums, MIUI 11 version 126.96.36.199 is now rolling out for the Redmi K20 in the country. However, the build is based on Android 9 Pie and packs in the Android Security patch for September 2019.
