Xiaomi’s software policy is not among the best in the Android world. Samsung has positioned itself in this field in the last 2-3 years as the best, while others lag far behind.
The same is the case with Xiaomi. But Xiaomi is expected to fix its software department. This is especially true of MIUI, Xiaomi’s version of the user interface, which even today is not even close to, for example, Samsung’s One UI.
Xiaomi has extended software support for some of its high-end phones, but some have also been cut off from future upgrades. Now Xiaomi has reportedly added some more phones to that list.
The Redmi Note line is the most popular Xiaomi line of smartphones. However, some devices from this line have reached the end of the road when it comes to software support. Xiaomiui now reports that the Chinese company has decided to cut off three more phones from software support.
The Redmi Note 7, Redmi Note 7 Pro, and Redmi Go phones.
Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro was introduced in 2019 with Android 9 Pie and MIUI 10, and the phones received one significant Android upgrade, the one on Android 10.
On the other hand, they got two significant MIUI upgrades – MIUI 11 and MIUI 12, while they are currently on the MIUI 12.5 intermediate version. And while some hoped that the phone might get MIUI 13 in the future, we now learn that this will not happen.
On the other hand, the Redmi Go was introduced with Android 8 Oreo and MIUI 10, but this phone did not receive any significant upgrades. It only received security updates. But they will not receive upgrades ever again.
Finally, it should be noted that Xiaomi has not yet officially put these three phones on the list of those cut off from future upgrades, but that should happen soon.
