Android 12 update
In this article, we will try to cover everything related to the Xiaomi Android 12 update. You will also find brief information about the list of eligible devices and the release date of Android 12.
Android 12 update
Google introduced the 11th major generation of the Android operating system on September 8, 2020. The previous Android version came with many system improvements, new features like speech bubbles, better privacy controls, notification history and one-time permissions for apps. Google has already introduced Android 12, but the stable build won’t arrive until Q4 of 2021. Xiaomi itself has not yet provided a list of what will be upgraded to Android.
However, Xiaomiui’s Telegram account has published a list of some devices. This list has been brought together within the information obtained from some sources at Xiaomi and MIUI developers. According to some recent news, major US security agencies are discussing whether Honor should be placed on the export blacklist. Agencies are said to be currently debating whether the company poses a threat to US national security and whether it should be banned. Banning Honor could have many negative effects on the already bad US-China relationship.
The news was reported by The Washington Post. While Pentagon and Department of Energy personnel discussed the potential for Honor company’s inclusion on the party list, the Department of Commerce and State Department expressed their opposition to this decision. The final decision on whether the company poses a risk and should be party-listed is reportedly shared between staff members and departments. “The same concerns about technology exports to Honor while part of Huawei should apply under the current state-sponsored ownership structure,” said the top Republican Senator on the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
The Washington Post also recalls that “Huawei sold Honor to Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology Co., which was founded by two state-backed investors affiliated with Shenzhen’s municipal government.”
Some members stated that they mentioned that Honor does not make nuclear materials or any components and does not sell their devices in the US, which would be reason enough not to ban the company and not put it on the list. They reportedly stated that such a decision could do more harm to the US economy than it would to China. It is a list of companies that are prohibited from trading with other US companies unless a specific request is made and approved by the US government. Huawei was put on this list, which prevented it from doing business with most American businesses. Even if companies are allowed to do business with a few American businesses, many caveats and limitations await them.
Such an example was carried out through Huawei. The latest Snapdragon 888 chips would come with 5G support on the P50 series devices, but were limited to 4G usage only. Xiaomi’s next interface MIUI 13 is on the way. MIUI 13 version will be introduced at the end of the year and will soon meet smartphones. The new version will elevate the experience on smartphones.
Leaks about MIUI 13 are increasing, shortly before the new version arrives. There is new news every day. Recently, images showing the new widget design of MIUI 13 have also appeared. Today, another detail that will not please users has been shared. Accordingly, the models that will not receive Xiaomi MIUI 13 have been announced. Some popular devices will not be able to receive the Xiaomi MIUI 13 update. The Chinese technology giant has announced that it will offer the 12.5 update even for a few models that are not normally supported. But that will not be the case for MIUI 13. MIUI 13, which comes with too many updates compared to 12.5, will not be supported on some devices. Here is the list of models that will not support the update:
Xiaomi Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro
Xiaomi Mi 9, Mi 9 SE and Mi 9 Lite
Redmi 8, Redmi Note 8, Redmi Note 8T and Redmi Note 8 Pro
Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G
The models we mentioned above will not get MIUI 13 for sure. All of these models have received the 12.5 update, but that will not be the case for MIUI 13. In addition to this list, it has been announced that the Redmi Note 7 series and Mi Mix 2 models will not receive MIUI 13.
