Xiaomi Redmi 6, 6A not getting Android Pie update


Do you own a Xiaomi Redmi 6 or its more affordable brother, the Redmi 6A? Well, we have bad news for you.

A recent report says that the Xiaomi Redmi 6 and 6A Android Pie update has been canceled. This is a few months after they announced that both devices are, indeed, getting the said update. The company is citing a reason for this decision.


It appears that there were not a lot of available beta testers that would help Xiaomi develop the said software update. This forced the company to suspend the recruitment of beta testers, and ultimately remove the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A to the list of devices that will be getting the major software update.

The company also announced a new strategy as to how they will rollout MIUI beta updates. Starting July 5th, entry-level Redmi devices will no longer receive Beta updates. Although rest assured that they will still be getting the stable updates.

Xiaomi will also implement the same strategy to all of their smartphones that are already one year old. Whether it’s a midrange or flagship device, they will only get the final and stable build instead of the beta versions. This means that users might only get a single stable update a year.

However, Android’s periodic security patches and improvements might not be affected.
